Thanks for answering.

Is there anything we can do about the situation? Does TSR have an email
adress or something we can appeal to?

I know that the previous editior of DRAGON magazine (Roger E Moore) wrote part
of the Spacefarers Handbook which has now become available (at last!). Perhaps
if we could get his email address, we talk to him about the problem. I read
that he has moved higher up in the publishing department - maybe he can fix the
problem!

PS - I really would appreciate the name of that FTP site. It'd be great to
     read something of what the Spelljammer list has been doing.

	David, I don't know how up you are on the SPELLJAMMER situtation,
so I'll fill you in the best I can.

	TSR, in their beloved wisdom, has cancelled the Spelljammer line of
products.  They aren't making any new materials for Spelljammer.  Now, I don't
know what effect this has on previously-released materials, but I would assume
that they should have some on back order.

	We here at the Spelljammer list have argued in vain to keep SJ alive.
It's to no avail.  The folks at TSR won't listen.  Now, we've heard that the
editor of DRAGON magazine likes Spelljammer, and if anyone has any submissions,
he'll look them over.  DUNGEON's editor, on the other hand, has commented that
they will no longer accept SJ campaign's in their periodical.

	That doesn't mean WE'VE given up on Spelljammer.  This listserver is
active and always trying out new things.

	You might want to take a look in our FTP site to see some of the
materials we've already posted.  There's the two listmember-created SJ
supplements, some GIF and JPG files you can download, as well as some new
fiction using Spelljammer.

	Take heart.  We're not gonna let Spelljammer die this easily.

Eric F. Schetley, co-owner,
Spelljammer Listserver.

I'll double check on the ftp site's full name and post it next week.
