Wow you read my mind Jaz. I was wondering how to get your TMA magazine.
Amazing how much nerve that ebay misfit has selling copies of your magazine. Send Cathy or Emma to his flat. Shocked

Thanks for the tip Andrew, by the sounds of it I won't need to bother

I don't know which dealer it is, but I have seen copies of issues which originally had covers printed on coloured paper ... but on the bootleg the colour is printed on white paper leaving a little rim of white all the way around.

Certainly if Jaz has a reprint underway, then wait for that ...

All the best

I actually had to just put on reading glasses for the internet, and it was before you got to that bit in your post, honest Smile My eyes are tired tonight from watching 4 hours of "Budgie" on the trot. Gloriousm 70s fun and danger/comedy, but LWT video colour starting to wear on the eyes.

Richard Bradford as McGill was incredible, I'd never have guessed he was a non-smoker because he gave a good impression of someone in dire need of a smoke. Fitted the character perfectly - he'd accepted so much cr*p for his vocation, hell, I'd want a smoke too.


That's my motto, and I'm sticking to it. Wink

I can read my screen just fine, but I wear glasses for distance vision, so I'm not one to cast stones. Wink It just shows a level of thought on Tony's part, that he figured Danny would realistically need glasses by that point, and why should he pretend he didn't? Why indeed. Cool

Richard Bradford is amazing on so many levels. The world-weariness practically oozed out of his pores, but after all he'd been through, he refused to ditch his morals. And for a non-smoker, he also managed to stick in little idiosyncrasies, standing his cigarettes on end and such. The man was able to successfully convey affection for luggage, for goodness sake. That's acting. Smile

You won't have to wait long Frankie because this summer will see all out of print issues (1-18 ) reprinted in a book format with some additional text explaining how the magazine started and progressed to the point of issue 18. More news soon

That's terrific news! I believe that I own every issue from #19 on (I will be able to check tomorrow when the stuff I had shipped from the USA over 6 weeks ago reaches my new home in Belgium) and enjoyed reading them thoroughly. Thank you, Jaz!

At 600 pages its going to be the size of a house brick! But I might do some editing to reduce it down - it just depends on if pages that are now so out of date (eg 'market place' where members could buy/sell/trade with others) are kept. I suppose they show the development of the magazine but are now of little interest.

What's the consensus here - all in warts and all (big book and more expensive) or edited highlights (thinner book, cheaper but not the whole story). I prefer the warts and all approach myself. Please give me your feedback

Warts and all, but maybe 2 volumes?

Hmmmm. Tricky. Just purchased the second "Doctor Who" volume of the original "Doctor Who Fan Club" with reproductions of all the fanzines from around 1975 to 1977. Very nostalgic indeed and quaint to look at from a historical perspective to see what fandom was and wasn't saying and thinking and understanding at the time. But I know that there's some elements I'm unlikely to return to - certainly in terms of research (e.g. the fan fiction). But certainly knowing that, for reference, I can see the *whole* picture is very useful.

That's my perspective anyway. Hope that helps.

All the best

Andrew

I would prefer a condensed version myself as unpopular as my vote is. My house is so cluttered I would have to build an extra bookshelf for it or maybe at 600 pages buy the book a very much deserved home of its own. Very Happy
But either way I'm buying it.

was this McGill character-Richard Bradford, on all the episodes or just the later ones? I am getting the first 6 episodes and hope to see him. He sounds rather entertaining.

Richard Bradford's McGill was the protagonist of ITC's Man in a Suitcase in 1967/1968--he has absolutely nothing to do with The Persuaders! at all. I'm mentioning him in the same breath as Tony simply because they're both examples of Lew Grade's attempt to attract American audiences by casting American leads, and they're both brilliant. Wink I watched Man in a Suitcase last summer, and just loved it, but it's very different in feel to The Persuaders!--brutal where Persuaders! is light-hearted. Highly recommended, though--Bradford's performance is something to see.

(Oh, and another vote for warts and all on the TMA reprint front).

If it's print on-demand then I'd say go for both - while I'm a purist and want to see the magazines reproduced "warts and all", a "best of" would be of more interest to me right now due to space and money issues!

That's not a bad idea, Franky.

I like Franky's idea too, but would go for the "warts and all" myself.

I can't wait to own this, as I have a patchy collection of them. Thanks Jaz

Two volumes would be great and warts and all! Very Happy
