We all know the story: A man driving along a road at night picks up a hitchhiker. When he pulls up to the house, he turns to tell her that they've arrived, but to his astonishment, there is no one in the back seat of the car. But how old is the legend of the 'Vanishing Hitchhiker', anyway?

Blue Sky Studios was an established low-budget animation studio. It had created one highly-successful animation series in Ice Age, but none of their other films matched that success.

Another snow-filled issue. Our contributors have catalogued the snow and ice in all its dubious glory. There's no sense in fighting it: just appreciate the aesthetics. Superfrenchie reminds us that spring will be here: she's spotted snowdrops and crocuses on the way. Other delights include humour, ongoing stories, a new chatbot, and a friendly fox.

"The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is a wholly remarkable book. It has been compiled and recompiled many times and under many different editorships. It contains contributions from countless numbers of travellers and researchers."
