    We're approaching the point where IGNITION CITY will be properly announced and publicly scheduled.

    So, every few days, I'm going to leak out something on the book. As it were. Not quite a production diary, but... something. Yes.

    Here's the rough version of the book's front cover logo, for instance. Not the version you'll finally see on the printed work's cover, but close.

    I like the concept, and the artwork is done by the guy who did Aetheric Mechanics! This has got to be good. Will this be black and white, or colored? Will this be an on-going series, a one-shot, or a mini-series?

    You have to have rocket guns as well as ray guns. Buck had a rocket gun that shot spin-stabilized rocket bullets.

    Some outfit actually made a rocket pistol that shot pricey hand-made rounds.

    Ah, but that was in the 25th Century.

    I want a rocket gun, though.

    @zenbullet: Thanks! I read a little about gyrojets years ago, when I was into SF wargames. Didn't know they were working on rifles too.

    Rocket guns might make sense in microgravity, because of the low recoil.

    Space opera model rockets. Right hand page. Probably designed by guys who grew up watching Rocky Jones. I still have the "Dragon Ship 7."
