I had to work rather hard to find the issue number of this particular zine. But not nearly as hard as I did transcribing all of the credits! Seems like every page has at least two articles.

Apparently they added Space Gamer to this issue? This zine is a mixture of several different magazines in abbreviated form.

Notice the Zocchi ad regarding collectible Deities and Demigods.
