Got my copy and already read it :)

As usual, can't fault the columns or reviews.


The Compartments of Hell - brilliant! Thoroughly enjoyed this low life look at the apocalypse. A much better play on it than all those Hollywood movies where only the heroes seem to survive. A blast from start to finish.

Going Home, Ugly Stick In Hand - Not so keen on this. Felt quite insubstantial and underdeveloped.

The Covered Doll - Whilst this was well-written, I thought the ending was signposted so far in advance I guessed it whilst I was reading the Pinborough/Meloy story ;)

The Wounded House - Not a fan of this one, I'm afraid. Flicking through it again, I can't really find anything to recommended about it.

At Night When The Demons Come - another rollicking story bookending the magazine with the Pinborough/Meloy. Superbly realised characters with interesting moral dilemmas. The artwork was terrific, also.

For me, TTA #20 was a mixed bag when it came to the fiction, but the two which really appealed warranted the cover price alone :)

Arrived in sunny Frome.

Has anyone else read the Meloy / Pinborough story yet?

Yup - it's the only story I've had the chance to read so far, and in my opinion it's worth the cover price of the magazine alone. Great stuff, very well written.

Delivery update: people are still waiting, sorry. If it's any consolation it's not just us: SFX posted this to their website recently, and Private Eye subscribers have received a letter apologising for the delay to their December 17th mailing. Ours went into the system proper December 14th.

Regarding buying individual issues, do people have to wait for it to be a back issue to do so, rather than a current issue?

Yes I have rather ambivalent feelings towards it. While it is very well written and impressive because of that, unfortunately the idea of Armageddon through the eyes of junkies just leaves me cold. The most horrible bit was the smell of dirty feet. :(

Agreed, the Meloy/Pinborough story is great.

My favourite so far is The Covered Doll - absolutely beautifully written.

Still one more story to read...
