Here's the truth: I have been laboring over the things I wanted to write for it, here and there and now and then; but I haven't taken the next steps with the other submissions yet. I also have some logistics questions that aren't entirely resolved, but those aren't holding up the works right now. It's still moving forward, just slowly.
With the holiday season creeping up, I don't think it will come out before January. So the "Spring" issue I pictured looks realistic (now in terms of semesters), just a different year than I hoped.
I am interested in seeing Trollszine continue. I am only just becoming familiar with the game, but I am relying on solos and other articles (such as the ones describing Delverton) to learn what I need to hopefully write some T&T flavored solos or interactive fiction of my own. If I can help move the production of future issues forward, I would be happy to consider doing so.

With respect, sonofliefeld , have you offered any assistance? Have you submitted any articles? Offered to proof-read or copy-edit? Perhaps drawn up some art to grace the pages or offered your skills to help with layout? I see nothing in this thread where you have nor in the thread calling for volunteers to take over as editor for issue #9. All I see is a series of complaints regarding the length of time that a freely available, community supported, volunteer run fanzine is taking to produce. Enough's enough. Either step up, offer some assistance and take on some responsibility or hold your own council. The snark is unappreciated.
I'll have the deep-fried battered pixie with balrog dipping sauce and a Hobgoblin ale.

What you call snark I just call requests for at least an update... Oddly enough silgo received a lot more negativity during his tenure as editor from multiple posters and no one was called to task over that
