Edited by Gordon Larkin. 16pp. Reviews include Death Race 2000 (“twice as good as Rollerball at a fraction of the cost”) and Tangerine Dream’s Ricochet (“an album that will certainly please the fantasy-rock culture, if such a beast exists”). Letter-writers include David Lloyd (“Russ Nicholson is so good he scares me”) and Ramsey Campbell (“it’s perfectly possible to write about a character who is a philosophy and nothing more”).
