I thought it was very interesting reading about the people who were involved with AA, though it was fascinating reading about it's beginnings, the 1st issue of AA taking 3 Months to write, where it was written and what they used.


Interesting Rod Lawton and Adam Warning were involved with N-Photo, assume during the same period?

I read the article this morning during my lunch break at work. It was well worth reading. Well done!

There is also an article in the same issue about the making of Get Dexter 2, which I'm sure will be of interest to some readers of this forum.

The AA article featured a sidebar about covertapes and some reminiscing from @ChaRleyTroniC about how much of a nightmare they were to put together when he had that duty - something that he also documented in issue 3 of the Better than Life disczine (the article is entitled 'The AA Covertape Companion'). I'm sure Richard would rather forget about the one that featured Crossword Compiler! :D
