Here's what appeared on the rear of the January edition of Crossword magazine:
Crossword, Second Series
The monthly publication will be distributed mainly electronically. It will consist of a variable number of separate A4 sheets to be printed single or double-sided at the whim of the recipient.
The suggested paper option will be available for members supplying SAEs or stamps plus address labels.
It is planned that the content will be broadly similar to that of the First Series to include two prize crosswords with the bimonthly clue-writing contest, plus extra suitable content as available.
Two 'winners' of each puzzle will be invited to choose a subscription-size monetary prize if they wish.
It is hoped that, with faster communications, it will be possible to include solutions etc in the following month's issue. Time will tell.
Setters will continue to be offered payment for their crosswords.
It is expected that the annual sub will be £30-£35 world-wide.
The first - March - issue will be offered in the form of a Free Sample. Continued publication thereafter will depend on the number of subscribers enrolled. Replies:
