The editors say of it:
"Banana Wings is a science fiction fanzine published from Croydon since 1996. It has been variously described as too long, too small, too serious, too fannish, too irregular and too frequent, but some people like it anyway. "It has been appearing quarterly since late 2004, and remains resolutely a paper publication. But the editors have at least embraced the twentieth century sufficiently to use eFanzines.com to help to answer the question: ‘How can I get hold of a copy then?'
