Description Edit | History

Shire Talk 8 saw a change of format from A4 to A5. This was also the first issue to be printed at a printing house rather than photocopied on to coloured paper and hand-stapled. Mike Gadsdon was the new editor, taking over from Duncan Probert.

This was the final issue of Shire Talk.

Cover artwork is uncredited but very likely by Quentin Manley.
