No, it wasn't the final issue. Read the boxed announcement in issue above which states that LC would start coming out in magazine format. One issue (at least) did come out in that format

Ah, OK - it seems to be the final issue in the Sparrow's Nest collection so I wasn't sure if they ever managed to produce the magazine format. How long did the LCG last for after this?

No 8 contains the last special supplement of the ORA/AWA/LCG current: The Peasantry in Action., written if I remember correctly, by Keith Nathan. Billy Williams, as I've said before was one of my nom de plumes, Terry Sheen was an alias for Anthony Zurbrugg who has written a couple of books on anarchism.
