EOD Issue 5

December, 1991
Edited & Published by Chris A. Masters
A5, 120 pp., saddle-stapled, card cover.

When it came time to print EOD #5 I was no longer working in the job that allowed me to print the interior pages of the magazine. To print this issue I bought my own second-hand photocopier.

EOD #5 came out in December 1991, and at 120 pages was almost a double issue. The number of subscribers was steadily growing and, if I remember correctly, would have been between twenty-five and thirty by the end of 1991. With this issue, I also doubled the print run to 300 copies. Steven Proposch printed the cover at his work and another friend Andrew Barnes let me use his new computer to print the headings that I later pasted into the final print-copy of the magazine.

With five issues under my belt, I was more experienced and improving my editing skills more with each issue. EOD Magazine was actually starting to get noticed, and for the first time I was finding myself with far more submissions than I could print. I was also getting a lot of help from friends like Steven Proposch and Andrew Barnes, who were helping me with the printing, and Bryce Stevens and Rod Williams, who were kind enough to supply me with artwork on spec. Also, after EOD #4 had come out I had put together a Contributor's Guideline Sheet, and listed the guidelines with Scavengers Newsletter, as well as several local writers groups.

Overall, this issue featured some quality fiction and the second and final instalment of Leigh Blackmore's article, "Under the Pyramids: On Lovecraft and Houdini". This issue also saw the commencement of Tony Brook's "Lores of Darkness" series of stories which Tony self-published in book-form a couple of years later.
