Ah, this is a tough one. On the one hand, Peter Hogan wrote Strontium Dogs, and as many have said he was a light in the dark of the era. I also really like David Baillie too - he's a heck of a writer and deserves his place in the comp.

On balance, I'm going with Hogan.

Hogan for me too, for all the reasons stated above.

Well time to call this one, but to be honest it was clear some time ago. I think I let my own person love for one story by David Baille - I genuinely took all 3 with The Ghostship Mathematica blind me to the fact that he probably hasn't done enough for Tharg to do well here. So as it is this was was very clear cut and goes to

Peter Hogan

Mind given how much love his work too who really cares!

A bit like Megazine bargains I keep leaving this too late. I open the credits in Barney and start to think about writing a nice reminiscence and comparison of the two droids. Before I know it, it's tomorrow.

I'll try to do a bit less work today and concentrate on this instead.

Yes, yes always this. Less work, more thinking about 2000ad. Its the mantra I've lived by!
