Columnists

Post by LeeT » Tue Nov 29, 2005 4:58 pm

Is there any chance that RG will have regular columnists - Maybe someone like Julian Rignall or Gary Penn.

Whilst I'm here, how about asking Keith Campbell to do something adventure-related? I emailed him after the RG interview last year, and he is a nice guy. Adventures are often forgotten about in the retro 'scene', so heres an opportunity to change that.

That would be a great idea! I really do need to get back into text adventures, or whatever the hell people want to call them nowadays...

...interactive fiction? Piff... :wink:

Its only laziness that has stopped me from delving back into text adventures again - So RG could be the shove that I need (hint, hint!) :wink:

What about Stu Campbell? His stuff's ALWAYS a good read.

If one of them is Lloyd Mangram, you've got my 12 months re-subscription without even seeing the relaunch issue.

I think I'd like to see a regular contribution from Gordon Houghton, if he's got the time. His writing is usually pretty good and he seems like a really nice guy.
