TS Newsletter is a weekly newsletter for The Sentinel fandom.[1] New issues were initially posted every Friday; currently the posting day is Sunday.

In deference to the many fans that exist off LJ/DW, the newsletter also links to fanworks posted to the three major fandom archives: Cascade Library, 852 Prospect, and Artifact Storage Room 3. Fanworks posted in My Mongoose are included as well.

In March 2008 murklins graciously donated a delicious script that greatly helped automate the coding process.[2] The newsletter is currently crossposted to LJ, DW, and IJ. As of November 2012, it remains active.
