Thread: The Wasp Factory in Imagine magazine (1984)

  1. #1

    Default The Wasp Factory in Imagine magazine (1984)

    Itís been bugging me so I made the effort to track down where Iím pretty certain I first saw mention of Iain Banks Ė a review in Imagine magazine (a role playing / D&D mag put out by TSR UK in the mid 80s)

    Itís in issue 29 (August 1984) in the Fantasy Media review column by a certain Neil Gaiman (then credited as writing the Imagine short stories: 'Feather Quest' and 'How to Sell the Ponti Bridge' and co-author of Ghastly Beyond Belief)

    The review in full: Iain Bankís (sic) THE WASP FACTORY will delight horror fans with its mixture of black humour and horrible, imaginative, beautiful deaths.

    That's where the journey started, I picked up a copy of the paperback in Smiths soon after...

    I've not got a physical copy... found a digital copy somewhere. If you want a physical copy they turn up on ebay from time to time
