BBC today: “Richard Neville, the co-founder of 60s counterculture magazine Oz, has died aged 74 from Alzheimer’s disease, his family have said. The Australian author died in the coastal town of Byron Bay in New South Wales state surrounded by family.”

(Slightly odd for me to spot the story this morning, as I was reading bits of his book Playpower yesterday afternoon, having not looked at it for probably 40+ years)
