This section of this site will feature downloadable and searchable PDF files of TWT.
As
scanning several years of a publication is a huge project, additions will appear
as I have time. By the end of the year, TWT had grown to around 100 pages.
Access to this publication is courtesy of Gulf Coast Archive & Museum and the
collections of Jay Allen and Jack Stalnaker.

In 1983 with the anniversary issue, March 25th, the publication switched to a color
format, and also a book-style binding (which ironically made it harder to scan, as
the text was often way too close to the center binding).

What did I scan?
General guidelines were everything in the early issues, but when they passed 100 pages the scope of the project needed some trimming. (It takes about 30 minutes to do just one). So, I left out many major bar ads that were used over and over, reviews of mainstream films and books, horoscopes, and classified ads. Also, increasingly by the mid-90s there were multiple full-page 900-number sex ads, which were omitted.
