  • Epiphany Gift: New Frontiers! January 6, 2013

    Author: Beach Combing | in : Contemporary , trackback

    The third Beachcombing epiphany gift follows: past gifts were War in Dollyland (2010) and Scary Fairies: Proto Edition (2011).

    In the search for information about the Fairy Investigation Society we were put onto New Frontiers by Stephen T (for which again many thanks!). New Frontiers was a short lived British paranormal magazine published in January and February 1947 then silence… The only way we could manage to actually get a copy was by buying the damn thing and as an act of revenge and as our epiphany gift we are putting it up for the whole web scanned: download from this online account, which has kindly been put at our disposal (thanks Raoul!). The download can be found on our source page: apologies to all those who were sent before to an outside source but the file was too big to put up without webmaster help.

    The scanning is pretty bad, because Beach just doesn’t have much experience in these things. But everything is legible at least. Kind of… We’ve bound the two existing numbers, handstitched in red. 100 sterling (or free to ST) should anyone be REALLY interested. Otherwise it will mature on Beach’s shelves for ten or twenty years and then get given to Oxfam.
