Starglider 2 Novella

Post by nobogod »

OK, this is undoubtedly one of the best ST games ever.
We have many menu disks, stand alone disks, soundtrack, screenshots, box scans, adverts, magazine reviews. And a disk image containing both Stargliders in one disk!
What we don't have is the Starglider novella written by James Follett which was included in the original package.
I wish i could read it after all those years. But it's also a pitty that the ST community hasn't save it yet by the nails of time.
So?

The reason you can't find either of the Starglider novella's is that the author James Follett still retains copyright over them. He as also said that he intends to update the novella's at some point so this is why the copyright is still enforced strongly to this date. It's a shame because both novella's really are a vey good read but unless you own the game your missing out.

Maybe it could be found somewhere on the internet but is won't be with any of the big sites that offer this type of thing from games.

So if we have this, we can't scan it and post it here? :)
