Centauri-Express-logo-transparentWelcome to the first issue of the second volume of the Centauri Express Audio Magazine! As we’ve mentioned before, the first volume of the Express was way back in the 1980s and was distributed on cassette, if you can believe such a thing. Today, we’ve moved into…a more modern era.

Dash-Cardigan-webAnd, as promised, we are bringing you the expanded edition of Thomas E. Fuller’s epic space opera, Dash Cardigan. We originally presented it as the hour-long stage version on ARTC’s Podcast, but this is the expanded 13-episode original version. Chock full of character development, tense plots, and astounding…wait, what? The whole series is a bunch of cheesy jokes and classic movie references? Sounds great!!

Louis+Puster+IIIAlso in this issue of the Express, William L. Brown interviews author Louis Puster, III about his Saga of Ukumog series of books and we’ll also hear a segment from a panel discussion at Sci Fi Summer 2016 that features William Brown, Anthony Fuller, and William Alan Ritch. We’ll bring you more of that panel discussion in future issues of the Express, so stay tuned for that!

As always, thanks for listening and let us know what else you’d like to hear in the audio magazine!

But it’s also possible to be an actual member of ARTC. To do that you have to start out as a participant and then pay some modest dues (that’s not a metaphor, it’s actual cash).

And there are benefits! You have to be a dues-paid member (among other things) to be eligible to be on our Board of Directors. You have to be a dues-paid member to vote in the yearly elections. And if you’re a dues-paid member, you get a discount on ARTC products!

But what if you’re not in the Atlanta area? What if you’re just too busy or too far away to take that first step by being a participant? What if you still want that sweet, sweet discount?

ARTC-RavenHere’s the deal: You show up at the ARTC sales table (which has been located in the Hyatt, down by the art show for the last few years and we expect to be there again this year, but it’s Dragon Con, so you never know) wearing any sort of ARTC logowear and BAM! You get that sweet, sweet discount. How much is the discount? Why, that’s 20% off any ARTC-branded items on the table.
