The Scorpion #9
Show/hide 1. Untitled Foreword, introduction, preface, afterword, 1 page

"This page is usually reserved for my letter which takes the form of a splurge, telling you just how good the next issue of The Scorpion will be. My friends, there won't be any more of The Scorpion, this is the last issue. Why? Because the Queensland Literary Board, a constituted Authority of the Queensland Government, thought fit to ban The Scorpion from that State. No reasons were given, no police court action was taken, how and where The Scorpion offended I'll never know, because it would mean that I would have to take court action to find out…"
