I understand the confusion in the title! But the name Estronomicon is derived from the Welsh word Estron, meaning strange. The rest of course is inspired by the infamous Necronomicon, so the zine title means something like Book Of The Strange. I thought this may be an appropriate description for the type of content that will be included!

I think you're thinking of oestrogen (if I've spelt that right?), Ben! That's one of the "lady hormones"!  ;)

Nice to see you back with us, Steve. Ally's done a sterling job keeping Screaming Dreams Press in everyone's minds whilst you were incapacitiated.  :)

Hi Martin,

Many thanks for the very nice get-well video! Much appreciated. It was good to make it to FantasyCon this year but sorry I didn't get more time to chat with you. I know you were really busy there though! Hope to catch up again at the next event.

It's funny how your mind can interpret things your subconcious takes a leap with.

A friend of mine was commenting on the fact that she thought a local restaurant had owners from 'Thailand or somewhere', so she doubted their ability at cooking British sunday roast dinners. When I questioned her knowledge she thought about it for a while but couldn't remember the source of the information.

It was only when we visited the place that she realised. There was a sign on the fence that said 'Sunday Lunches by Booking', only the word BOOKING was interrupted by a wooden post so that it read SUNDAY LUNCHES BY BOO KING. She had assumed Boo King was an oriental chef, and doubted his expertise at traditional English food.

I can assure you she's no racist. Just a poor reader, and rather dizzy to boot!
