      The latest issue of Slingshot (number 265, July 2009), the bi-monthly
      publication of the Society of Ancients, has just gone to the printers;
      it should take around 10 days to actually arrive with subscribers.

      This issue is 60 pages long, not including the cover pages. It's
      published in the same format introduced with issue 258.

      The contents of Slingshot 265 are as follows. For games articles, I've
      indicated the relevant rule set where it's not immediately obvious
      from the title; with historical articles I've tried to indicate period
      if a similar issue applies.

      As usual, I'm looking for more material in general and some game
      specific articles in particular, right now of the more popular systems
      DBMM & AMW material would be good. But I am as usual open to material
      for any ancients rule set.
