I have just finished reading my copy and I'm very impressed. It's lovely (and not just because my story's in it).

I loved it, and like Sallystartup not just cos I'm in there.

To be honest I'm in the middle of reading a H P Lovecraft collection of short stories, and so I thought I'd read these stories here and notice a big difference in style and quality. But no, not really; imho there wasnt that much of a gap, which I think is amazing for a small mag like this.

There isn't a story or poem in there that I thought was worse than good (if you see what I mean, nothing poor or even just average). A few stood out for me, though.

The Thirteenth Hole was a phenomenal amalgam of dark horror and faerie(ish) fantasy done with such a light touch. Fabulous.

The Shadow Inside, great imagination, effortless build up of tension in so few lines. I really identified with the weird feeling of being alone in an office at night. I had real relief when it was the janitor and I loved the way the end and the beginning parried each other.

I loved The Vampire and the Witch too, loved the way it went straight into their fully-formed world and the little twist at the end.

Imo though all the stories and the poems were well worth reading, it was a pleasure reading them folks, thanx alot and cheers! :D

I receieved my copy a couple of days ago (infact the same day that I got my final mark for my Creative Writing Diploma with the Open University) and was astounded by the talent shown in such a small mag as Andy says x
