Last year sludgetrough started a thread for posting pictures of E/P flyers. Several members posted flyers, including me, but the thread eventually petered out after two months. Instead of just adding flyers to that thread I decided to create a new thread in which I would add more of my flyers. I’m also adding flyers posted by other members of this group in different threads to try and consolidate them in one place. Many of these titles are no longer available from E/P but it seems that many of us would like to see the flyers.

I created another thread for discussion to try and keep this one from getting too cluttered with non-flyer posts.
