Slingshot is issued six times a year to members of the Society of Ancients.  Membership currently costs £24 for six issues and includes access to Society  games,  publications,  member discounts and the Society forum. You can subscribe or re-subscribe through the store at the Society's website,

The editor is always looking for more articles, photographs and art, so feel free to contact him through if you have an idea.

Also, all remaining pre-2011 Slingshots are now available at £5 per year's set. If you are interested in picking up cheap hard copies of older Slingshot bundles, more information can be found here.

For more information about joining the Society of Ancients see our homepage at

Note to members: for some of us, membership will expire after issue 299.  If you are not sure when your renewal is due, check the envelope containing your Slingshot. If your membership number starts with the number 298, you need to renew now.  Please try to renew in plenty of time so that you have no problems getting your copy of 300.
