Wargamer's Newsletter Index
I just finished last night the indexing of the Wargamer’s Newsletters I have. I’m posting below a list of the ones I’m missing, in case anyone has them and wants to send me the relevant information to add to the index. Having done a large number of them I know this is quite a commitment however.
I have indexed articles, book reviews and regular features – Wargamer of the Month, Counsels of War, The American Scene, Battle Report of the Month – but not the Must List, Looking Around, News from the Clubs etc.
The information indexed is:
For articles and features – title, author first name, author last name, and where appropriate theme (from a list below)
For book reviews – title, author one first name, author one last name, author two first name, author two last name, publisher
Themes used include:
Issues I am missing are:
The last issue I have is 214 – I don’t know if there are more after this one; the editorial says Tradition have pulled out but announces the Newsletter will continue. It is the last one in the long run that I have, anyway.
I'll wait abit to see if I get any extra information in, and then I will see how best to make the index avaialble - though my main purpose in doing it is to help me manage and keep track of content for Vintage Wargaming. I have compiled the index in Microsoft Excel.
If anyone wants to send me any information from the "missing" issues, please contact me using the link in the Contacting Vintage Wargaming page (next to Home at the head of this page. If you contact me first, I can send you a blank spreadsheet into which to enter the information.
