Dear juris,

You are welcome. Thank you for the compliment. As I mentioned on the Web page, any fan of car combat is welcome to send me titles to add to the Automotive Combat Media Checklist.

Regarding "And, Of Course, It Was Black," the Gaming Notes for that story mentioned there would never be HDDS Ammo. The statement is not entirely accurate.

I remember seeing HDDS Ammo in an issue of Dragon Magazine as a Car Wars variant. The Tanks article in Dragon Issue 117 might have rules for HDDS Ammo.

I think that was the joke -- that "HDDS" had been mentioned in a not-official article; and given the arguments of "power creep" which were going on at the time, could we please *NOT* have it become official? (Shortly thereafter, we got _CW Tanks_, complete with Nuclear Weapons....) :)

This Twitter thread regarding Car Wars fiction is worth reading.

@RamonaRichards in 1984 at the age of 10 or 11 I picked up my first copy of Autoduel Quarterly: Vol 2, No 3. I was just thinking today that 𝑆𝑒𝑟𝑒𝑛𝑑𝑖𝑝𝑖𝑡𝑦 remains my favourite piece of fiction set in that world.
