You're right, Starla. It's an absolutely amazing piece of work.

Thank you for bringing Five into the fold. Words fail me when I try to describe his incredibly intuitive way of working with black ink on white paper. And that cover ... takes my breath away!

PS. Am going to post a link to it on my own website when I get round to it, but are the old anthologies still available? I was reading from 'Oi' in a couple of schools recently and they both wanted to get hold of a copy.

When we took over the forum from Helen, she closed the TWI storefront on Lulu. So, the books are no longer available in print. However, we do plan on making them available on TheRightEyedDeer storefront as .pdf downloads. Just have to spiff up the files a bit first!
