Neat, thanks!

(Love Howard Hardiman's work - cool cover!)

The printers have let us know that they hope to be sending it out during the week beginning Monday, November 24. Obviously, there could be hiccups of all kinds between now and then, but with luck it'll be with UK members this month.

Awesome! I received a copy of this in the post today, which looks great and is delightful, thank you! Just the one copy, though. As both contributor and BFS member, do I not get one for each of me? ;)

Okedoke. Then, since I have a lot of people asking me and I don't know what to tell them, how does someone get hold of the rare and elusive additional copies? (:

It's a members-only publication, so they'd have to join the society, I'm afraid!

Ooh, you can get old ones even if you join after they've been posted out? I shall prod a couple of folks, then, ta.

Yes, we buy the spares for people who join or rejoin between now and the next issue coming out. Members can also get access to the ebooks of back issues where available (one isn't planned for this issue, I'm afraid) and we sometimes offer print copies of older publications and back issues to members for free, bar the cost of p&p.

When I edited part of the Journal and chaired the BFS all contributors (of articles and stories) received a contributor's copy. I think it's wrong that has now stopped. I gather that non-BFS members receive a copy of the publication to which they contribute. Which means these folk get "paid", BFS members don't get "paid". I have expressed these views before now.

I was still renewing my membership when this was being sent, has it gone out? If it's gone then I don't have a copy, so how do I get a copy?

All suggestions eagerly awaited,


Wayne.

No, sorry, just checked and you weren't on the mailing list for this issue, so you'll be reliant on the stockholder sending you a copy, if any remain. My understanding is that the secretary sends him a list of renewals and asks for copies to be sent, up until we run out, but to check whether one is on its way to you the person to email is Chris Teague (stockholder@britishfantasysociety.org). You are on the mailing list for #13, though.

Cheers Stephen,

I've sent Chris an e-mither as stock holder.

I've had a quick look at the PDF sent, looks good.

Thanks,

Wayne.

Just received my contributor's copy over here in Ireland, thanks so much to all involved, especially Sarah Newton. It's a lovely book, I shall have to join in the new year to get more. You do let some 'furners' in, right?
