Hi all,

Apologies if this query has already been posted in the past (I'm sure it must have been)

I'm trying to find out how many Fanclub based magazines/Newsletters have been published over the years. I notice the wonderful scanned documents in the section above ; serious thanks to those involved.

Would I be right in assuming that Blockade was the only UK magazine and was published by the Fanclub? Is that all of the issues posted in the section above or were there perhaps other specials, companion newsletters etc?

Same question for The Wentworth Star ; the only Aus fan magazine? Completely scanned above?


I know that there was something else called the H-Block Herald but I'm not sure where that fits in and if it was UK or Aus.


Thanks in advance,

Jay

I don't believe Blockade was part of a fanclub and was just a magazine - yes all the issues are posted here.

This was part of the Oz official fanclub and I also think all issues are scanned here.

I did post these quite a while ago so forgive me if I am incorrect on any of the details.

I remember getting a few episodes of Blockade and I am certain it would have been the original ones from 1993.

What I am less clear on, is how on earth I would have known about it back in 1993, pre internet?

Was it perhaps advertised in Inside Soap magazine? I do remember buying that occasionally.

Thanks all,

So was H-Block Herald the only other publication during the 80's/90's? I see that some of them have been uploaded here too. Any idea how many there were?

As far as I know, yes. I don't have any more information about them. I am sure some people will have more and it would be nice if anyone could scan them in and post them here:

There was "The Block", "Behind The Bars" and "Top Dog" as well as I recall. I used to write a Ferguson serialisation for "The Block", titled "The Big J"
