It's been said that, with the stories and art of FC appearing on the net, people might easily put together their own magazine instead of ordering a paper copy. Maybe, but there are a lot of us who still love to have the 'real thing' on the bookshelf, and knowing what's going to be in it seems not much different to looking at an item in a catalogue and still wanting it.
Ade's drawings for my story surpassed my expectations. A piece of rapidly-written flash-fiction, I wanted pulp comic book thrills with characters who'd convince and appeal to book readers. Ade captured what I wanted exactly.

It's pretty much done but he hasn't had time to fart recently, working two shifts a day, doing two school runs a day, doing his chores and mine too, and looking after a small child and a bedridden woman. All in all he's only had time to collapse each evening. Sorry chaps.
