Found in a comics shop in Ryde on the Isle of Wight. Science Fiction Monthly was a slender, British mag in glorious, staple-free A3 format whose main reason for existing seems to haver been to provide SF fans with high quality colour posters of sci-fi illustrations (mostly book cover paintings without the text) which folded out to A2 size. Circa mid-late '70s (there's a review of Death Race 2000 in one of these).
I'll post some of the contents up later.
In other news: I've started a blog for sharing photos and illustrations from those unpromising-looking, old, hardback, non-fiction books that usually sit in piles on the floor in 2nd-hand book shops and charity shops: technical manuals, how-it-works, our glorious infrastructure etc:
BORING OLD BOOKS
If you have anything in this line yourself, STAND BY YOUR SCANNER cos I'll probably be asking for contributions later to beef it up with (I've got a fair bit at home but I'm bound to run out eventually. Assuming I don't forget the whole thing after my 2nd post, of course).
