Fanzines 1983

by Chris Creagh
I have in my hot little hand a fanzine edited and published by Seth Lockwood in 1983 called “Give Dog Boiled Yak”, number 2 July. It looks like it was written on a flying hammer typewriter and then stencilled and, you guessed it, belongs in the Murdoch collection. This episode contains:
Editorial by Seth Lockwood
A Musical Evening by John Berry
Vegemite Toffee by Julian Warner
Easter In Melbourne by Jo Masters
The Ultra Deep Stuff by Seth Lockwood
Letter from Robert Mapson
