    Lilliput [v32 #5, #191, April/May 1953] (2/-, 116pp, digest)
    From this issue Colin Willock is replaced as Executive Editor by Michael Middleton. The names of Silverton, Mackinlay, Stacey and Richardson and their roles are dropped but whether they still operated as such or whether those roles have ceased is not clear. This issue also proclaims a “Free Spring Supplement” but whatever that was isn’t in my copy. This issue is 116 pages.


    Lilliput [v32 #6, #192, May/June 1953] (2/-, 112pp, digest)
    This issue 112 pages.
