Pfft! Frankly, the editor should be on his bicycle, hand-delivering copies to disgruntled subscribers. (Of course, being the editor, this task could perhaps be delegated to a staff writer!)

Another good front cover. I will be looking forward in reading this issue very soon. :D

Is Horace In The Mystic Woods a brand new retro game from the old Horace series?

Also, is the Simpsons the Coin Op version that sadly never made it on any home formats?


Thanks.

Think yourself lucky... Mine won't get here for a couple of weeks :(

By the way, Horace in the Mystic Woods was a Psion 3a/c/mx hand-held Horace game. The 4th Speccy Horace game, Horace to the Rescue was cancelled when William Tang punctured his lung.
