Summer Special Download: Conventions and Other Events

The end of August is approaching – a hot, hard sun (we love you, Neil Cross) or else the cold rain and autumn-apprehending clouds of the legendary English bank holiday weekend. Time for our long-planned summer supplement! The Tides of Time Special Edition Summer 2019: Conventions and Other Events is here, having grown from a few pages which had to be left out of issue 43 into 64 colour pages looking at some of the events our writers have been to recently or in some cases several years ago.

It can be downloaded free of charge in one of two formats:

High-resolution PDF (12Mb)

Low-resolution PDF (2.6Mb)
