Anyway, I’ve been real busy with the MT Supplement that’s coming out in January to accompany Morpheus Tales #15 which will launch on 1st of January.

The good news is that it’s going to be huge! 41 pages at the moment!

Three author interviews (Andy Remic, Mark Morris and Bruce Bethke), another gorgeous scream queen mini interview with Kachina Dechert, and Eric S Brown interviews Lyle Blackburn lead singer from Ghoultown.

New columns from Trevor Wright,  Simon Marshall-Jones, Jim Lesniak and Alan Spencer.

Loads of reviews! Pages of them!

And you finally you get to read my review of the year annual column, including the winners of the Stanley Riiks awards for brilliance! Drum roll please… Sorry, I’m not allowed to say. You’ll just have to read it!
