Paperback Fanatic #2 (Sept. 2007)
What did we do before Paperback Fanatic? If it only seems a couple of weeks since we were raving over the first issue, that’s because it is, so when a mysterious bundle squelched through my letterbox on Monday the last thing I was expecting it to contain was a proof of number 2!
It’s not as if I’m ever going to struggle to promote it to you people, but the eagle-eyed will have noticed that the cover features selected works from Robert Lory – and Justin has landed one of his biggest scoops ever! If you recall the interview-cum-career retrospective with Michel Parry way back in Pulp Mania, imagine the same treatment afforded to Mr. Lory …
To blithely trot out “worth the entry price for this alone” is true but also pays a huge disservice to the rest of the magazine. Justin has hit on a winning formula with his genre-hopping approach and number 3 showcases the artwork of Jan Parker and Bruce Pennington, the first in a two part investigation into the ‘German’ war fiction of Sven Hassel, ‘Leo Kessler’ and their acolytes, plus the usual feast of cover scans.
