FROM THE PUBLISHER

Sincere apologies but Issue 89 has been delayed, and regrettably the future of BACKPASS is in severe doubt. (UPDATE: BACKPASS 89 will be sent to subscribers in the coming week and will be in the shops in the next ten days).

Print costs and retail charges have escalated significantly in the last couple of years, postal charges continue to increase on an annual basis and it is becoming ever harder to maintain our standards while keeping the cover price at a realistic level (the price has increased to £6.50 from Issue 89).

Our goal was to at least reach the milestone of 100 issues but sadly that now looks highly unlikely: talks are ongoing but as things stand the next edition, No.90, could well be the last. If that does prove to be the case, all subscribers will be able to claim a refund and the procedure will be explained in No.90 which will be published in mid-August. We are unsure whether this edition will appear in the shops but details of how to pre-order are in Issue 89.

Whatever the outcome, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all subscribers for their loyalty over the past 17 years. It has often been a real struggle to carry on and we would never have got this far without your wonderful support.
