ST 19 - contents

Sorry I've not posted for a while. Things have been confusing and more than a little demoralising of late. Suffice to say I don't know where I'll be financially or otherwise in a month or two, but I'm battling on. The point is, what's going to be in the next issue of the magazine? The answer, in a nutcase, is this, or possibly these:

Colin Insole - 'Flower of the Sun'

Louis Marvick - 'Is for Ilinx'

Stephen Cashmore - 'The Ticket Collector'

Andrew Alford - 'China Doll Recall'

Gillian Bennett - 'Housing Problems'

Dave Siddall - 'Camilla'

David Surface - 'The Smell of Red Clay'

The ingredients of the above stories range from alchemy in Word War 2 to problems with public transport, by way of 18th century French entertainments, death and the maiden, some 'body horror', and a woman whose spirit ends up in a hoover. Then there are guest reviews, written by people who know what they're talking about, which is always nice. All in all it's shaping up to be quite a jolly little spree into the realms of darkness, madness and strangeness - favourite three nesses, after the Loch of course.

Rather late now, but realised I didn't vote for best story, which in this case, for me, was China Doll Recall, which was genuinely different (in the best kind of way)
