I've just come upon Imazine Issue 18.
Brette, the link doesn't seem to work. What do you know about these?
It's really quite well put together for a fanzine.

Issue 18 of Imazine is also Issue 30 of Dragonlords. It says that Dragonlords folded as a public release after issue 22 'the fold issue' and was published Issues 23 through 29 as a private circulation only. Dragonlords 30/Imazine 18 (Summer 1987) marks the merging of Dragonlords and the first time Dragonlords had appeared in public since '85.

And of course the return on The Pits, FRP's most poignant cartoon strip. For those who remember it, it's about the ruminations of a piece of green slime in a dungeon corridor. Now expanded to 12 frames.

Also, it says Imazine 1 through 13 are A5 (UK Digest Size) and issues 14 onwards are UK A4 size.

So they titled it Dragonlords 30 on the cover, explained that issues 23-29 were private circulation only, and printed key Dragonlords regular columns in order to make some people who thought they were important in the UK fanzine scene feel like they'd been excluded from something important? An in joke by Marc Gascoigne and Paul Mason?

So Dragonlords only runs to Issue 22. 23-29 don't really exist and there is DL content in Imazine 18 thich is jokingly labelled 'Dragonlord 30'. Imazine lies about the existense of issued 23-29 to alude to a secret inner circle who have been part of the 2 year Dragonlord 'underground' and create discord among the readership.

That really is in keeping with the British sense of humour, and with the sorts of games Paul Mason was playing at the time (Paranoia, Cthuhlu).

I am so glad you're dealling with cataloging fanzines and not me. :D
