If I ever go into the erotic publishing business that'll be the name of my flagship zine.

Anyway, I recently discovered that you can read old issues of TIME online! *HERE* Reading some of the ones from 1940 are really interesting, though I'm mindful as to just how much of it is propaganda...

Why 1940? Because I'm working on a new Jonny Cave story! Don't all get up at once. The buzzword this time around is 'death'. Lots and lots of death. And madness. So it'll be quite a cheery tale, I'm sure you'll agree. I'm also trying to implement quite a strong religious angle to it, mainly 'the power of belief' rather than any naff preachy guff.

Also polishing a sub for Michael Lea's BETA CITY anthology - subs are still open for this if anyone fancies taking a crack at it. My story's about a cop who tangles with (what he thinks is) a new supervillain...but it's not! OOOO!

What else? I'm slowly but surely working on a logo for a friend's roller derby team, editing stories for the Glitch antho, and reading subs for the 50ft Book antho, not to mention trying to find furniture for my new flat :S so it's all go for now, but most certainly...SEXCITING TIMES!

So it turns out the first anthology I co-edited (with the lovely Bill Tucker) is now available. Stone the crows! 400 pages of apocalyptic fiction - it doesn't get much DOOMIER than that, no sir.


Why don't you buy it before the world ends?
