Well, you never know. Mind you, I think I'd need a pretty hefty lottery win to do so—if I didn't have to work on paid stuff, I'd actually be happy to do 108. The problem is juggling work life, home life and creating a magazine!

It's not the end of ZZAP, because its legacy has lived on in the writers who have gone onto other magazines, and in the websites of certain dedicated fanatics...


(I reckon we've got a good team here on this website and issue 108 is still a possibility for the future...)

Well Craig, I guess you just have to get your priorities right, Rob almost ignored his family for 2 months! ;-)

Well, been there, done that, got the t-shirt (although, admittedly, not for the length of time that Rob had to take doing his Zzap!, seeing as the DEF one is larger and he wrote a lot more of it than I wrote for 107).

108 has never been cancelled—it's just that none of the three people that spent weeks on 107 have enthusiasm for the project at the moment, and I can't see Rob thinking "must design another Zzap!64"! Still, as the saying goes, never is a long time.

Well there's always the 20th anniversity of Zzap's demise in 2014! x-)

It's terrible isn't it Paul? :( Reading all about it and having not got a copy yet. Hopefully you won't have to wait much longer!

What's more terrible is reading the whole thing numerous times, correcting everyone's typos and still not having a copy! (And, yeah, I know Paul did some subbing, but I'd already done a load by then. So there.)

Paul, sorry, patience is a virtue. (at least one more week anyway! :twisted: )

....I've already read the thing through several times, and know it almost by heart! :lol:

But I want to have it in print, and hold it, and lovingly stroke it. :)

Meh, I'm not expecting it any time soon. :lol: I know what the post is like when it comes to delivering stuff from Europe to the US. I'm a patient lad, although I hope it gets here before the end of this month...

Our post service here is... variable anyway. It wouldn't entirely surprise me for the postie to fold the mag in half and leave it in the letterbox as is their way when delivering mags here.
