Frequent Plokta contributor Pam Wells will miss Novacon this year, choosing instead to jump out of an aeroplane in support of Children in Need. We will be collecting money at Novacon to speed her on her way, and urge you all to give generously. Spoilsports wanting to buy her a parachute can also contribute if they wish.

Those of you who have been following previous issues will know that Plokta is seeking Lottery money to install a propeller on the top of the Millennium Dome. Many of you have written to us to ask what you can do to support this endeavour. Well, we've put our heads together and are delighted to announce the Plokta Enterprises Millennium Dome Propeller Beanie. Yes, you too can be the envy of every kid on your block with this unique and charming accoutrement. This exclusive item of Millennium apparel is available at the low, low price of ú1999, or signed by Peter Mandelson for ú4000.

In a doomed attempt to keep Dr. Plokta out of
Bedlam mischief, we have persuaded him to set up a fannish news service on the World Wide Web. You can reach the Plokta News Network by turning your dial to http://www.plokta.com/pnn. All manner of stuff appears there, including things that aren't in Plokta. Feel free to support PNN by reading the web site, subscribing to the mailing list, doing scandalous things we can report on, and reporting on the scandals of your enemies.
"This is the best web site I've ever seen" said Nova-award-winning artist Sue Mason. "Of course, it's the only web site I've ever seen."
