Space Gamer #40 (cover-date June 1981) once again proves that old-school is cool – and the articles are fun to read, too!

In addition to the regular game reviews, news, and letters, this issue reaches for the stars, with a special Traveller theme. Articles include "Aboard the Leviathan" (notes about a Traveller session written by Marc Miller, the game's creator); an alternate space combat system; contest-winning nonhuman races; and a meaty section on a detailed world ready for Traveller action. Also included is a cumulative game index for issues 15-39 of Space Gamer; a look at a (hypothetical) "play-by-phone" business model; and Part 14 in the series "Game Design: Theory and Practice," co-written by Steve Jackson.

Whether you're a fan of old-school gaming or a historian of our hobby, each issue of Space Gamer is the perfect passport to the past!
