For one thing, it printed a grand total of two issues before the editors up and joined the Army. For another, it was graphically one of the handsomest BG zines on record; the copy I have has a striking black cover with silver lettering and illustrations. As is normal for fanzines, the stories varied widely in quality, but one of them was the funniest BG story I've ever read. They only printed part one—for all I know part two was never even written—but it’s amusing enough to run by itself. For several years I tried to hunt down the writer of the story and/or the editors of Pyramids, with absolutely no luck, so I reprinted this story in ANOMALY 19, apologetically without permission. It was worth it just to get it back into print."
Anomaly 20 was published in 1993.
