Hello,
I've got photocopies of articles from two zines, and I'd like to figure out which issue they appeared in in order to cite them properly.
One is a review of "Fantasy Wargaming" in S.E.W.A.R.S., a zine or newsletter of the South Essex Wargames and Roleplaying Society. It has "December 1981" written across the top (by the person who copied it, I assume) and is signed Mike Oliver & Chris Baylis. I don't see a page number on my copy. I would guess it was originally issued on full size (A4?) letter paper. It looks typed on a typewriter with a problem with the lowercase "a".
QUESTION: Is there anyone here who either has a full or partial run of this zine, or at least has some documentation of the numbering/release schedule?

The other is more tentatively identified as this is the only time I've seen the title mentioned, even after looking over a lot of lists of zines and so on. It has "Dragon Claw" written on the top of the copy, in the same hand as the other. There seems to be a large page number (3) on the upper right hand side of the page, which appears to be from a digest-sized sheet (A5). The review, again of Fantasy Wargaming, uses a bit of art clipped from a White Dwarf advert for the book, and is signed Stephen Turnbull. My questions would be:
QUESTION: Was there a zine titles "Dragon Claw"? (or could that be a regular column title in a better known zine?)
QUESTION: If Dragon Claw was a zine, what issue am I looking at? I assume something released in the winter of 1981 or spring of 1982, as the book was published in the fall of 81.

Thanks for any insights!

So, what did they think of Fantasy Wargaming? Best RPG ever, right?

Man does not behold the face of the Gorgon and live. Some things are not meant to be explained.
