National Past Time evokes wistful memories of a promised rules set for Combat Football that was only mentioned once in a Driver's Seat column of ADQ. That would have been a fun game.

Just need to find an editor, and get the permissions squared away; and we can have a "_CW Fiction Collection_".... ;)

My post only included works of fiction that were published by SJ Games.

I have a larger list of Car Wars and car combat fiction on my Web site. The simple format of the document appears quickly on a mobile device when visiting used bookstores for these titles. Many of the titles are out of print. :o)

I can take a little pride in saying that National Past Time was originally submitted to Driving Tigers Magazine, and I thought it could get into ADQ. I gave some editing suggestions, and told him to go for it.

Do you have my U.S. 1 story? Not sure where I might have a copy. Some hard drive or other, in some form or other.

Dear Chris,

Apologies for any confusion. I only listed fiction published by SJ Games in my original post.

Yes, I have your U.S. 1 story, along with most, if not, all of the Driving Tigers/Road Wolves stories. I still have my print copy of Driving Tigers Magazine #1. :o)

U.S. 1 can be found in the HVD Car Wars Mailing List Archive on my Web site. I also compiled all four parts of the story into one HTML file.

You are welcome to use the original four sections and the compiled document for your own Web sites and blogs.

U.S. 1

Sorry. No confusion. I was actually wondering about it. I went to your site earlier today, but I wasn't sure where to look. Thinking back on it, I likely have it buried in email somewhere as well, but I couldn't even tell you the year I gave it to you!

Dear Chris,

I need to make a more in-depth search of my e-mail archives, but based on my initial search, and the discussion we had on Twitter recently, I believe I never received a copy of U.S. 1 from you. I did send you all four parts of the story in a Microsoft Word file many years ago. Thank you for mentioning on Twitter you made revisions before sending the story to HVD.

U.S. 1 can also be found on the HVD Car Wars Mailing List Archive I still maintain on my Web site.

Here is a URL of a Web page listing Car Wars fiction from SJ Games and Car Wars players.
