Looking forward to your comments on this issue. We hope you enjoy it!

Looking forward to this - not just because I'm a Cooper fan but because I've just realised McHugh wrote 'Vic' a little ways back and I loved that story.

Ah Ray, you have cheered my heart. :D

'Water' is a flash piece, and I hope you enjoy it.

BTW 'Vic' will be podcast soon (April I believe) in Dark Fiction Magazine.

Brilliant, I look forward to hearing it. Always nice to sit back and let someone tell you a good story.

Arrived in Cheltenham this morning. Is it strange that I am plotting my whole Saturday around freeing enough time to read the Cooper story in one sitting?

Nope. I never read a short unless I can do it all in one go.

Arrived in Edinburgh yesterday. Can't wait to read it - some of the artwork this issue is wonderful - giving each story a strong, individual, visual character that can be appreciated even on a casual flick-through.

Found the latest issue to be quite a mixed bag. The opinion pieces were of the usual high standard and felt the Volk worked almost as a companion piece to the Cooper story, which I found to be the strongest story of the issue.

Really enjoyed the Cluley story and its closing image will live long in the memory.

The McHugh did little for me, but I'm not much of a fan of flash.

The Leslie story, while well written, felt like it was covering a well worn theme done with better effect in stories by the likes of Gary McMahon, James Cooper and Nicolas Royale.

Finally the Grabianowski story was most disappointing of all feeling rushed and underdeveloped; there is probably a great novella to be had from the idea but didn't work for me at this short length.
