Flashback - Making Messes (RTP! #11)

Issue 11 was a long time in coming. I had left NZ for the UK in May 2000 with the understanding that thanks to the marvels of the internet I would be able to help Matt assemble material for the issue, which he would then paste up and print. That was the plan. Reality was a little different. Matt wasn't hugely motivated (and struggling a bit at Uni at the time de to various issues) and thus the rest of 2000 passes without an issue. By early 2001 most of issue 11 was done, but it still wasn't quite finished. Yet 2001 end without the issue surfacing, which was frustrating for me on the other side of the globe.

Come 2002 and I returned to NZ that March. I immediately called on Matt and he effectively gave up being an editor there and then, handing me what had been already done. Luckily by this point I had a laptop with the necessary software (a very old version of Adobe PageMaker) and was able to finish the assembly of the issue. I decided just to get it done and out the door rather than start from scratch. Thus issue 11 was finally sent to subscribers in April 2002.

Reviews - The TARDIS Tales Treasury

First couple of reviews in, one from Edwin Patterson at the NZDWFC forums:

This is an excellent book, well done. An essential buy for New Zealand fans, and a great read in general.
Secondly, from Paul Scoones at his blog:
I am most impressed with the look of the finished, printed book, and it clearly shows that Alex has devoted a lot of time and attention to getting it just right.
