My first published piece was in David Sutton's celebrated fanzine Shadow back in April/May 1969 in its sixth issue. This was an article titled Franz Kafka: Narrator of Nightmares, with a totally inappropriate illustration by yours truly. Other contributors to this issue were Brian J. Frost, Eddy C. Bertin, Alan Jones, and David Sutton.
I was pleased to get a copy of Wishful Thinking, edited by Sheila Hall, published by Fireside Press in the post this morning. Even more pleased at the dedication by Doug Draa for his story Indian Summer. Thanks, Doug!

Just put the last tweaks to a story I wrote a while ago but was dissatisfied with till I did a thorough rewrite. Maggie Dudgeon Presents is a little tale about the trials and tribulations of an amateur dramatic group and of clashing egos, only very tenuously connected, I would hasten to add, to any groups I have had experience with over the years!
