Auxmaulous is right. Though lichhunter was a slight bit provocative using the word "waste," there's no reason to be upset that he or she doesn't like the same things you* do. I mean, I work hard on my parts of the Adventure Paths, and while I'm not joyous that people don't like the things we create, I completely understand that not everything we make is everyone's bag. That's just not possible.
Remember, you* liking something doesn't make it good, and you* disliking something doesn't make it bad.
We're all here to have fun.
* You in the general sense.

Ah, dear Meyi.
More to the point, I think that including a gazetteer of the city the first two adventures take place in is far more valuable than an article about old deities. The worship of the old gods isn't a super strong focus in this Adventure Path, but knowing what's up in Wati certainly is (at least in the first two adventures).
As Sutter said above, we are certainly paying attention to this thread to see what people like and don’t like about the new format.
Praise alternating with criticism has been something that has followed the Pathfinder Journal since we first met Eando Kline. While we’ve had fiction in every single Adventure Path since day one, it has changed slightly over the years as we march towards the triple digits. Threads periodically pop up about the Pathfinder Journal, and we were already talking about how we could continue to evolve it before the last one popped up. We paid a lot of attention to that one and even announced our plans in that same thread.
We all (Team AP + Sutter + Wes) talked about what we wanted to do with the Pathfinder Journal, and one of the main things we tried to focus on was giving more material to someone running the Adventure Path. A GM can use the characters, setting, locations, and whatnot to enhance their campaign or they can print out the Journal and give it to their players as a handout in order to get them more involved in the setting and events of the campaign. Going forward we’re likely to evolve the Pathfinder Journal further, and I’ll certainly be paying attention to what people think about what we’ve done so far. Thanks for the feedback.
I just asked Andrew. The artist is Roberto Pitturru.
There is going to be an article about androids in the first volume of the Iron Gods Adventure Path (Pathfinder #85), and that should answer most of your questions.
(I'm not answering the tortoise question... I see what you're trying to do to me.) ;)
Until then, there has been a lot of discussion about androids (along with some answers from James and myself) in this thread.
Silly Technic League... think they know everything. :)
On a partially selfish note, I really really hope that "help on future books" includes god articles. Those have tended to be the first things I've read in each book that had them, going all the way back to the Desna one. :)
After drying my eyes, I selfishly asked the same thing about the deity articles. :)

Other folks have covered some of the points, so the biggest advice I can give (in a concise nature so I don't derail this thread) is to find out who is accepting pitches or looking for freelancers. Once you locate a company you want to write for, look at their catalog and get familiar with the styles they use and things they've already published (that way you don't look like a fool pitching something they already published).
Another thing that can be super helpful is becoming friends with other freelancers. When I first started freelancing I was lucky enough to have a few friends that were already doing it, and then I got invited into a freelancers guild called the WereCabbages. Having a group of people to review work, act as fresh eyes, be sanity-checkers, and just the pool of experience was absolutely one of the most helpful things I could have ever had. A lot of our freelancers are friendly with one another and bounce things off each other pretty often. I always encourage that kind of shared learning.
Hey folks! I was going to send emails to a bunch of my freelancers to see who was coming to Seattle for PaizoCon, but I figured it'd be easier if I just made a thread. I also thought it'd be neat for folks to see who of their favorite Pathfinder authors will be at the show.
So, sound off, freelancers! Who's with me!?
