You may have noticed that the February issue of the Alien Times didn't make it to your local newsstand. Tim Boyle, the usual editor, is away for a couple of months and I was asked to put together the Alien Times in his absence. Unfortunately, due to a series of mishaps, including inexperience and a computer that decided it needed a vacation, the February issue just never made it to the printer. It was decided, therefore, to put together a combined February/March issue, which is what you have in your hands at the moment. We recommend that you read this issue twice to make up for the missing February issue and we look forward to the return of Tim for the April issue.
