Mine's here. I took it to work then brought it back unopened. Need to read it properly. Wink

The Top 40 looks great, but I suspect it'll take up a lot of time, further reading and all that. Also good to see the door in the tree photo cleared up. Happy anniversary, FT!

For those of us who don't have the current issue yet, could you explain how the "door in the tree" photo is cleared up? Or perhaps we should just wait for our copy to arrive? Razz

Yes, the liquid metal Terminator tree is present and correct!

Haven't read much of it yet, but I really enjoyed seeing Hunt Emerson's early work in the Phenomenomix special. His art has stayed at a consistent level of quality, but has developed its own voice - his first drawings for FT are more obviously influenced by the likes of R Crumb and Vaughn Bode.

Really enjoyed the Top 40, some great articles I'd forgotten about but the one recommended concerning the mysterious sieges by impossible assailants sounded fascinating. Alas, it hailed from an issue way before I was reading the mag, so any chance of an update, FT?

We could always start a series reprinting classic articles from the 70s and 80s if there was a demand for that - although how we'd find room is another matter. Anything you'd like to see kicked out to make some space? A spring clean in the New Year might be a good thing...

Not sure I'd like to see something "kicked out" but something like the Fortean Follow-Ups item, only as an occasional featured article on one subject covered a while back, might be worth a try? There is that quote from Fort about continuing to investigate a puzzle once it has been solved, after all.

Also, very impressed with the Paul Giamatti endorsement! A great actor (and horse puncher) and a fortean too!

I don't like the idea of something being "kicked out" to make way for a Follow Up article, but having space for a semi-regular article might be good - looking at an event that made a big impact at the time, Follow Up articles, a review of old cases, and you could have three or four of these a year.

I like this idea. Although I have been an FT subscriber for over 10 years I still think there are some basics of Forteana that are referred to as if we all know about them even though they haven't been mentioned in 10 years. (rather like the Archers, I've been listening to that for 10 years plus and I still don't have a clue whats going on).

There is nothing that I would like to see kicked out though.

Yes, more pages! It's been done before, and it thoroughly improved the magazine, and we need more Forteana in our lives!

Actually, I should have mentioned, the Nessie article in this issue is a nice example of what I was on about above, revisiting an old case (one of the most famous in this instance), and finding a fresh spin on it.

The Greek gentleman's pic looks like a wave to me, but I get his point about the chances of him taking it being odd in themselves.
