Shooty Dog Thing 3 Reloaded

Hello again!

I had to take down Shooty Dog Thing #3 on Saturday morning, as due to professional reasons I am not at liberty to discuss, Stephen Fewell requested that I remove his interview from the fanzine. This is not any reflection on the quality or content of the interview, which he was happy with.

As it was down, I took the opportunity to rejig the fanzine slightly, correcting typos and adjusting page order and fixing anything I was unhappy with. You know what us writers/editors are like! There's some stuff in there that wasn't in the orginal, like Henry Flynn's Dalek City photo story, the odd filler piece, and the answer's to issue two's puzzles. I'm now much happier with the issue as a whole and Stephen wishes both me and Shooty Dog Thing success for the future.

I would like to request that people respect Stephen's wishes amd refrain from asking me for a copy of the original version of the fanzine, as I am honour bound not to distribute it. Thanks for your patience.

NB: This is no 'cut down' version, it's a full 48 page issue!

Printing Tips:
The print versions are arranged so that after printing Side A, you'll have to reload the printed sheets into the paper tray. Just flip the pages as a whole and place into the sheet feeder so that the reverse side of the cover is the right way around for the inside covers to print on. You may neet to print a test sheet marking the top page in the paper tray/feeder with an X and 'left side', right side' in the appropriate places. Once you've done this once you'll always know how to use both sides of the paper and reduce our impact on the environment. You'll then have to fold and staple. If you haven't got a long arm stapler, don't worry, the staples should easily pin through all the folded sheets, just staple as close to the edge as you can - I've kept the margins wide enough to allow you to do this.

More problems I'm afraid

Hi there,

it's not really going too well for the third issue so far. There's another problem with it that might take a couple of days to rectify, and that entails taking them down in the meantime. Please bear with me - it won't be long.

Something's gone wrong with the link to Side B of the print out version in the last post, so try this instead:


Sorry about that!

Issue Three Now Online!

Hey there!

Issue three of Shooty Dog Thing is now available to download. It's a celebration of 15 years of Bernice Summerfield, who first appeared in issue 192 of DWM way back in september 1992, and then in Paul Cornell's "Love And War" the following month.

The issue has interviews with Simon Guerrier, producer of the Benny range at Big Finish, Stephen Fewell, who plays Jason Kane in the Benny audios, and Lisa Bowerman, who plays Bernice Summerfield in the very same.

Also you'll find a history of Benny in print and elsewhere by Iain Martin, with additional stuff by me, a short story where Benny and Jason dig up some Quarks, and other stuff.

The issue is, as always, available in two versions. You can download a read onscreen edition if not wishing to print out:

and an edition presented so you can print out one side of an A5 fanzine format:

then the other (just reload all of side A back into the sheet feeder the right way around to print the reverse):

All versions are PDF files, and require Adobe Acrobat to read, which'll just need a quick google to find and download (there's always a free version).

All back issues are available, just scroll down to the June 14th entries for the first two issues.

I hope you enjoy the issue, and will see you again with issue 4 in December!

Oh, and please let me know what you think.
