In 1995 one man started writing articles for a sixth form college magazine called Hydra. That man was Steven Jackson.
And he persuaded someone else to start writing too. And lo, that second man did write and write, even when Steven had stopped.
That man was Andrew Bowden. And these are his files.
A look at the college mag that was Hydra, and how Bods got involved.
The regular sections that would crop up time and time again - from supermarkets to an american solider.
The first three articles that started off a whole writing career! Or somet...
The one emblazoned with "Bods - Lots of Him" on the front.
You can't beat a good pie chart!
What was that about a melon?
Sex, sport, cooking and a little ho-ho-ho.
The edition where the internet arrived! (gasp!)
The rather self indulgent ending of an Bods-type era.
If you don't like bad grammer, sarcasm, the odd pilfered gag, incomprehensible in jokes, an arrogance that everyone knows exactly what you're talking about all the time AND multiple explantion marks, The Hydra Files are not for you.
Why not go somewhere else? The Disney site or CBeebies perhaps?
