This year's Bristol Expo was a resounding success despite impending financialgeddon and the inevitable downsizing that brought. In fact I enjoyed it so much I wrote a seven-point evaluation for downthetubes here. There was only room to run a couple of photos so I thought I'd post some others here. These mostly taken at Mallory's absolutely fantastic adjacently-run SPExpo, which I've heard will be returning next year.

Andy Winter, standing strong against charges of misogyny
(He is later heard threatening to take a critic round the back
and misogynise them if they don't write him a good review.
That's all you need to know about the small press right there!)
