Congratulations, Pops!

I'm no stranger to post-exam middle-of-the-night panics. Despite the immense anxiety I endured getting my degree, it's the good old maths A-Level that does it for me. In one recurring dream, it's the morning of the exam and I suddenly realise I've not attended any of the classes or done any of the work. What dream-me was actually doing for those two years I have no idea.

Didn't know where else to put this, so. Today I've been working in a client's flat, and while he went off for some much-needed rest, I had a nosey through the stack of mags and books under his coffee table.

And there it was- a tatty old copy of the 1986 Sci-Fi Special ('Here's Looking At You, Juve!' cover by John Higgins).

My own copy hasn't seen the light of day for many a year, being bagged and boarded and stored in the box reserved for specials and empemera, so I had a quick read.

Rogue Trooper: The Fanatics, by Milligan and Ortiz!
Stronty: Papa Por-ka reprint from Star Lord!
Dredd: Beyond The Wall- one of my absolute favourite one-episode Dredds!

And The Man Who Couldn't Die, by "O.A. Stepaniuk" (who dat?)  and David Pugh. Now, that's a story I'd think would benefit from a reprint in a floppy. Great stuff.

Sometimes the world throws progs at you when you least expect it.

Dunno, but they did a smattering of other stuff for Tharg
