From the Introduction to the February 1977 issue:

          "Way back in the mid-sixties the BSFA produced the first issue
          of a magazine called TANGENT which was described in the 
          advertisements as a fiction magazine for or rather featuring 
          "top professional writers and bright newcomers".  It lasted 
          two issues and then folded.  Following comments I made to Tom
          Jones it was suggested that the magazine be resurrected with 
          myself as editor.  This suggestion was put to the BSFA Committee
          who decided that a trial issue should be produced with a view to
          producing TANGENT two or three times a year. ... This is the 
          trial issue; whether or not it is successful is up to you."
