Oh I have ~  :D

Ignoring my own tale, and the picture of a Michael Douglas Terminator!!!  :shock: I have to say it was a great read. I really liked the story about the sentient, and a little obsessive car, and was a little scared by the story about the guy who could detatch certain things  :oops:

The mag itself is excellent quality, but then you know I feel that way as I spew praise on any board I frequent ~ Look who's stalking now!!! You cheeky blogger  :D

Ah, an unbiased review!  :lol:

Glad you liked it though (I get a tad neurotic about typos and dodgy layout and the like.)

Oh, I've been stalking you again over at SFFworld - check out the mag poll & don't give up yet.  I think it sounds cool.   8)

I like this mag so much I want to buy the double issue, but how much is it Jen. I bit more than the above price doesn't work on a cheque.

Love the Mages.

Wayne.

Hi Jen.

I will be reviewing the latest issue for Whispers of Wickedness and initial thoughts are good ones.
Still a few more stories to read and then I'll be done. The only bad point I can see is the lack of artwork.
Will let you know when I'm done and will send you a copy of review.

Garry :)

Ah, see artwork always give me problems.  Not that I don't have plenty of artists who've volunteered their services... it's just I'm useless at the whole art commissioning business and always leave it too late to think of asking them.

Look forward to seeing the review, though!   :D  (Glad you like it so far!)

Just emailed the review to Peter so it should surface by the end of next week.
Really enjoyed it; you should be proud of the quality of work you have unleashed on general public. ;D
