H & N News

In other news.... Evil Twin Hell is shifting down to Bournemouth to be with her Collective so I've now got sole editorship of the mag.  Oh the power!  :->
While Issue 4 is at the printers, I'm starting to put Issue 5 together so (crossing fingers... again) while it will be a smidge later than expected, due to the later Ish 4; it won't be too much later. 
Realistically I'll try and get Ish 5 to the printers in September, ready for early October publish; then I want to squeeze Issue 6 out for the end of December. 
Then Ish 7 should still be March, and Ish 8 June 05.  

That way, fiction submissions will re-open for business somewhere between #7 & #8.

So have I spoken ;->
