Magazine of Original Work - 1965 

Return to Source page



In 1964 ‘Al-Fa’ and ‘Beta’ were abandoned in favour of the rather formal ‘Annual Report’ and the poems and stories that traditionally appeared at the end of the older magazines were given a new home in another imaginatively titled booklet.
