This is a new magazine and is very well produced. All the stories got a Very Good from me. This is entirely satirical magazine and all the stories are funny.
"Almost Heroic" by S.J. Pierce is the story of a sad-sack warrior who is being used as a messenger boy. Thieves, thinking he has something worth stealing, run him through with a sword. Actually, things improve for him there. In "The Most Selfish Man In All Of Stretford", Gregory Adams gives us a story of a man who is such an ardent soccer fan that even a "Monkey's Paw" type curse cannot defeat him. Robert J. Santa's "Princess Lily's Wedding" is a hilarious tale about a princess who just MUST marry her frog prince.
"Some Units Like It Heated" by Blake Hutchins is a funny little story of an alien who chooses the disguise of Marilyn Monroe to explore Earth. "Changing For Dinner" by Kathleen Wallace is a funny one-pager about a couple preparing for a night out. Last, "Making Up For Lost Time" by James Harris is the story of a 19th century clockmaker's last work, not a very heart-warming object!
So I'd like to see this magazine succeed! Go to their website and order a copy. Highly recommended!
