The Salamonis Gazette Issue 2 was the second issue of an on-going web-based magazine dedicated to Fighting Fantasy. Curiously, while the cover refers to issue as "Volume Two - Issue One" David Holt's editorial indicates that it is indeed the second issue of the webzine. It is not yet clear if this issue was ever published owing to the fact that only the first eleven pages have ever been seen. The official website notes under the news for February 2004 that:

The Adventurers' Guild area is now online and the new automated membership process operational. More exciting FF news, 2nd edition Salamonis Gazette and competitions.[1]

which suggests that the second issue was published that month. However, the editorial of the actual pages of the issue notes that "its almost a year since the last edition of the Salamonis Gazette and another year is before us"[2] indicating mid-late 2004 for a publication date, if indeed the webzine issue was ever published.


The cover was by Mel Grant and depicts a Skeleton as featured in the Deathtrap Dungeon adventure. This artwork was originally used for the cover of the reprint of that book.
