Science Fiction fanzines

Tripe Pickers Journal

Okay, let's get this straight.
The title comes from a science fiction fanzine of the 1970s.
It comes from the fact that me and my co-author (Steve Biggins) were writing for people in the south (of England) and trying to make up for the fact that they had some misapprehensions about us Northeners.
They thought we ate tripe.
And picked it.
(And shovelled it onto lorries, if I remember rightly.)

The truth is - I don't (any of it).
