Default Game Designer's Note, perhaps from Steve?

Does anyone recall SJG publishing any kind of game designer's notes, talking about how the game was created, why certain decisions were made, and so forth? It seems like that would be in ADQ, but I don't recall ever seeing it.

Found in Autoduel Quarterly, including the Best of ADQ issue.

A reproduction of Best of ADQ v1 was part of the stretch goals on the Pocketbox KS, so this very document, in hardcopy, is in a significant number of people's hands at the moment.

I'll admit I'd be interested in the design and evolution of the game from Steve's perspective.

I updated my original post to include all of the "Designer's Notes" articles I could find in Official Car Wars publications.
