The Bookworm Club review is accompanied by more Philosophical Phrases to expand the mind once more, and a winner of the Post Word Play is announced.

A new look for the front page kicks off a stunning edition of the Post packed with everything you've come to expect. An update from the 360 team rests in a thoughtful feature section, in which Munchkin brings us My Life as a Boozy Oaf, and we are treated to a feature which is Almost, But Not Quite, Entirely Unlike a Guide Entry About Heraldry. The regulars pack a punch as Dr. Funderlik grunts, Awix looks at The Matrix Reloaded, and the Post Word Play continues. CAC, Through the Doughnut Hole, Escape Pod Dreams and all your favourites also make an appearance.
Poetry heads up the Fiction section, along with more from h2g2 Storytime II, The 168th Greatest Story in the Universe - A Tribute, the second part of Only Slightly and more from Next to the Custard and The Edge, all finished off with a hefty serving of cartoons including the excellent Cat-egories.
With half the year almost gone, MaW joins the Post Team, and helps put together another bumper issue including Ormondroyd's interview on BBC Radio about P.U.D.D.I.N.G., no fewer than two articles about the 2003 Eurovision Song Contest, a powerful piece by useless hound, and an article about gravel. Our regulars pack their usual punch - the search for The Geraldine is on in Only Slightly, while The Edge receives a transmission from Mubua, and we witness the end (or maybe a new beginning) of h2g2 Storytime II. Pleonasm is the Word of the Week, Fashion Cat looks backwards in On This Day In History, our cartoonist run riot with their drawing equipment and Munchkin brings us My Life As A Boozy Oaf as a new addition to the regular columns. Plus our usual selection of jokes, reviews, thoughts and announcements for hours of reading pleasure.
A very special edition, containing the best of the Post as selected by the authors themselves. Re-live the best of our cartoons, features and fiction with this enormous issue.
Back to normal this week. The fiction section headlines this edition with a poem from Witchone, a Vogon poem from Quizzical and the next installment of 168, along with Next to the Custard, Only Slightly and Directly From The Mothership. h2g2 Life celebrates a milestone, Awix reviews Anger Management, the Bookworm Club review Tasting Salt by Stephanie Dowrick and So Long and Thanks for Laughing takes a humerous look at marriages. Dr. Funderlik continues his regular grunting, 45 Words regards Anne Frank, and we have a feature on Catalogues. Plus all the regulars, of course.
Hippopotomonstrosesquipedalian is the Word of the Week, but if that's far too hard to pronounce there are many other choices, including the continuations of Next To The Custard, Only Slightly, Directly From The Mother Ship and The 168th Greatest Story In The Universe - A Tribute. Two h2g2 poems star alongside these fiction gems, but there's also Sporting with Egon (featuring three reporters all in one edition), a piece for fathers' day by Walker, an argument against Monarchy by Felonious Monk, our usual selection of cartoons and a bumper section of regulars.
Shazz prepares for the h2g2 Summer Party in London, but still manages to produce the editorial for an issue headlined by our regulars, including 45 Words, My Life As A Boozy Oaf, The Post Word Play, and Dr. Funderlik grunting about the United Nations International Day of Seriousness. An UnderGuide status report can be found in the features section, and the fiction section is literally groaning with three whole h2g2 poems and episodes from most of our ongoing fiction sagas.
