Space Gamer #48 (cover date February 1982) swoops from the sky to serve up something special for nostalgic noggins.

In addition to the regular game reviews, news, and letters, this issue includes "Storm," the second in the series of Traveller adventures (a sequel to "Flare Star" from Space Gamer #46); "Symmkyn's Edge," a fantasy short story by noted sci-fi author Timothy Zahn (and including fantasy-game stats, written by Steve Jackson, for the story's magical weapon); an article from Aaron Allston about his Champions campaign; a discussion about how to not use miniatures to make a game more evocative; and designer's notes from the programmer of The Voyage of the Valkyrie (including amusing-in-hindsight details about where the 48K of system memory went when porting the game to the Apple II).

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!
