Upcoming Magazine Themes

The & Publishing Group editorial team keeps a rolling list of upcoming themes. We target articles for the next few issues to give us and our authors a focus. Here is the current list:

  • Issue 14 – Feb 2016 – Companion Animals
  • Issue 15 – May 2016 – Not Demons Nor Devils
  • Issue 16 – Aug 2016 – Dragons
  • Issue 17 – Nov 2016 – Fighters
  • Issue 18 – Feb 2017 – Villages and Hamlets
  • Issue 19 – May 2017 – Mythologies and Deities
  • Issue 20 – Aug 2017 – Crossovers
  • Issue 21 – Nov 2017 – Campaign Diaries
  • Issue 22 – Feb 2018 – Demons and Devils

For each issue the deadline for article submissions is 3 months prior to publication.

Please note that most of this is not graven in stone. At any point the next issue and the one after that are set — anything beyond that is subject to change.

If YOU have ideas for themes? Email submissions@and-mag.com with your ideas, and we will consider them!

Are you basically set on content for #14 at this point?

Welcome to the site, by the way!

Is Issue #20 about genre crossovers; i.e. Expedition to the Barrier Peaks?

Welcome to the site, by the way!

Thanks for the welcome!

In theory we should be set ... but don't let that stop you from submitting! I do the layout and we always need short articles to round out the page count.

Note: Every & publication has a page count that is a multiple of 4, so everything prints neatly with no blank pages. Most issues I need to add 1 to 3 pages to fill the count. Extra articles are handy ... and will get used in then next issue.

Nice, good to hear. I've got some ideas I was thinking of putting into order specifically on the topic already.

As was noted above, it appears that some of the themes may not be totally clear. The & team generally discusses possibilities - and then they get distilled down, and into the type of shorthand you see above.

"Crossovers" is probably the most indiscernible topic. What we're looking for is the translation to / from other game systems - typically for a "mini-campaign" or perhaps only a nights adventure - where the AD&D adventure takes place in another game system. I've personally seen translations into Gamma World, and Marvel Super Hero's.

"Not Demons nor Devils" is targeted towards the lower planes that do NOT involve demons and devils.

I think the rest is self-explanatory. But perhaps not. If you need guidance, or have questions - ask. We'll see if we can help you out.

We keep our list of themes on our web site. The list generally gets updated after each issue is published.

Please note that the theme that is top of the list is the one that is in production -- at this point this one is happening. The second one in the list is also in production ... but it *might* get swapped out for various reasons, such as if we have more complete articles for another theme. [Although this has happened, it's unlikely to happen again.]

All themes after that are subject to change. Something that seemed like a great idea 2 years ago ... may not be garnering the articles that we hoped. When that happens, we re-organize the list.

Important Note: While we produced themed magazines, we only commit to 60% of the content matching the theme. That leaves up to 40% of the content being off-theme. If you have an article (or idea for an article) that doesn't match a theme -- DO NOT let that stop you! We have room for quality articles.

Does anyone have ideas for themes that the &PG hasn't thought of? Please post!
