      As I believe Mark has mentioned elsewhere, he regularly provides me with
      names and addresses of "faces" from the MSO and they have all received
      the Hobby starter pack.

      I'm happy to swallow the cost of such things. I reckon I get over £100
      worth of free zines a year as a result of running Mission From God so
      such expenses merely offset the perks.

      Well, you could stop using the word "methinks" quite so prodigiously in
      your zine but apart from that you are doing a top-hole job, methinks.

      Just the review will be fine. I can get the editors themselves to do
      the laborious bit.
