    Lilliput [v28 #4, #166, March/April 1951] (1/3d, 128pp, digest, cover by Silverton)
    With this issue the magazine changed from side-stapled to a proper spine and 128 pages and printed on better quality coated stock. It also adopted the odd practice of a double-month cover date with the actual month of sale being the second date. The regular ’Contributors’ column, which was always the last page of text now shifts to the front as ’Some New Contributors’ and other new features are added including film and theatre reviews (latter by Ken Tynan) which became an “Entertainments” column in June-July. It also includes a ’long complete story’ slot starting with Noel Coward.
