Paperback Fanatic issue 16

Issue 16 of Paperback Fanatic is now on sale -  Their website is located HERE

I like the new smaller format - it fits nicely on a book shelf which is useful because it is the type of magazine you'll want to keep for future reference. This time there is much more internal colour which really makes the reproductions of the classic covers stand out.

Not Politically correct - who cares!
The editor writes in his editorial that he is especially pleased with this issue, feeling that it is the kind of magazine the team have been striving to produce. There's the usual eclectic bunch of articles - I especially enjoyed the feature on the Commander Amanda series because I actually remember reading one or two of these, hidden inside some text book, while in school. For some reason the pictures of the hot bird on the cover excited us schoolboys - chicks with guns, can't be bad!

The letters page or rather pages are great and this time there is a long and entertaining piece from horror legend, Guy N. Smith, fellow pipe smoker and all round nice guy. There is also some interesting feedback on the previous Karl Edward Wagner feature. All in all another great issue - I read it last night cover to cover in one sitting and can't wait for the next issue. The easiest way to ensure your issue is a subscription so visit the link at the start of this review for details.
