She stated her intentions were: "...an attempt at the sort of fanzine which I have long waited to see but have never come across - a magazine in which observations, experiences and ideas can be exchanged."

Five of the post OMPA issues were released, the last in 1961. Five of the post OMPA issues were released, the last in 1961.
