  • The Numbering: The first Issue was July 78, rather than Summer 78. Issue 10 was Winter 80/81 instead of Autumn 80 and Issue 11 became Winter 1981. From the start the Journal has vacillated over which year winter takes place. It began admirably enough by placing it in both years but changed to putting it in the following year, by Issue 41 however it was changed to the current year so we have two Winter 1988 Issues 37 and 41. Since then we're pretty sure when Winter occurs, even if we're wrong. Issue 27/28 was a joint issue. Issue 85 was declared to be Autumn and should have been Winter, although with global warming, they might be right.

    The Editors: from Issue 1 to 39 Pete Binns, Issue 40 to 103 John Rees and from 104 Chris Harman.

    The price: from issue 1 to 2:75p, from 3 to 8: £1.00, from 9 to 14 £1.25, from 16 to 25 £1.50, from 30 to 42 £1.95, from 43 to 61 £2.50, from 62 to 99 £3.00, 100 to 104 £4.00 , from 105 £5.00 apart from special editions.
