Re: Zzap! Annual 2020 kickstarter

Been looking at this. Loved the first annuals, and they are great quality, great value. Fusion books kickstarters are the ones I trust 110%. Only reason I've been arguing with myself is due to having the other Zzap 64 and Crash Annuals, and wondering how much space I can use for these on the booksh...

Re: Questions for Stoo Cambridge

Looking forward to it, better to have too much that too little :) Yeah... although I have shrunk it down to 5300 words so far, there's plenty of the interesting (and previously unknown) stuff in there.

Re: The Google Stadia
