Zero magazine issue 15 - anyone got it?

And now to the thing I actually came here to do.

Does anyone (anyone who isn't a paid-up member of my hate club, obviously) have a copy of this mag that they'd be prepared to scan a page of for me? It'd be from around the end of 1990.

I used to have the COMPLETE set of Zero as I subscribed to the mag. I have given them all to my mate Mort so they are still nice and safe... One day he will get round to scanning them all in (he's already done issue 0 and 1).

So... what page do you want scanned in from Issue 15? and I will ask him when I see him next.

Ah, I wondered what was happening with that project - issues 0 and 1 were done ages ago, aren't they? It's the fanzines feature I'm after, so if he gets the chance to grab it, it'd be much appreciated.

He only did the two issues then he managed to get a complete set of Amtix! so they have all been scanned in now.

Mort has just bought another new scanner (his fourth I think) as he has worn out the last three.

He is also scanning in another set of spectrum mags as he has been busy on ebay buying up the last few missing from his set.

Wow. Pass on my regards to him - I've already got the complete scans of Crash and Your Sinclair, it's a fantastic thing for him to be putting all that work in for free to preserve their history.
