March 31, 2011 · Comments Off on The March 2011 issue in-depth

As announced yesterday, the first issue of the sixteenth volume of Juiced.GS is now arriving in all subscriber's mailboxes, having been mailed four days ago.

The most striking feature about this issue is the full-color cover. The past year has been good to Juiced.GS, and we've reinvested that fortune back into our print publication. The cover sports artwork by artist and Leadlight game designer Wade Clarke, who not only gave Gamebits permission to reprint his piece but who also did some custom revision for our purposes. The product of his effort also marks the first Juiced.GS cover to feature artwork, instead of a photograph or screenshot.

The story that goes with this cover is Ivan Drucker's review of Leadlight, framed in the larger context of the potential and struggles faced by the interactive fiction genre. This in-depth piece represents Juiced.GS's first Apple Core feature.

Another first is Martin Haye's introduction to the Apple II. Our retrocomputing community includes many enthusiasts who are dusting off their Apple II for the first time in decades, or even acquiring their first Apple II machine from eBay. Martin welcomes those new to the hobby or interested in joining by looking at likely places to get Apple II hardware and software, kicking off a three-piece series that will review everything one needs to know to get an Apple II up and running.

By contrast, this issue also includes the last installment in another series, that being what the Juiced.GS staff have familiarly been referring to as "the file transfer series". Directed by Ewen Wannop, this five-part series has featured contributions from almost every one of our staff writers, describing ways to exchange files between an Apple II and a Mac, Windows, or UNIX machine, and what to do with the files once they're there. This series has been literally years in the making; now that it's done, we're reviewing all the changes that have occurred in retrocomputing technology since we first outlined the series, so that we can start revising it for its next iteration.

Finally, occasional contributor Peter Neubauer returns to our pages with an exclusive interview with Alan Floeter, creator of Macrosoft and The Assembler. Look for exclusive bonus content from this profile tomorrow on the Juiced.GS blog.

My Home Page, DumplinGS, Random Numbers, and a full-page, full-color advertisement for KansasFest round out this issue's twenty pages. These stories are indexed in our exhaustive online database and this issue's own page, with additional resources listed in the online issue links.

With this issue under our belt, we're hard at work on the next. Be sure to get yours by subscribing today!
