That interview contains my new favourite typo ever! Johnny Maims;D
Interesting to read about why Beyond folded. The exact same thing happened to Far Point, which featured my other half,  Jilly paddock's second ever story sale in the second issue. W.H. Smiths ordered 12,000 copies, sold 3,000, pulped the rest without even bothering to notify the publisher & left him with a huge printing bill. He managed 4 issues, before packing it in.

Oddly enough, it was Far Point that gave me the inspiration to start up Beyond serveral years later - though if I had known its experience with Smiths I might have had second thoughts - or not been conned by them into printing and sending them as many copies as I did!

I had a story accepted by Far Point, but unfortunately the magazine folded before it was published.

It was a good magazine while it lasted.

Ha ha. Yes, Johnny Maims!  :o
