FQ18: Pimpery 01

It occurs to me that I’ve not been very forward at sharing what is in the new FQ- well we’ve got:

Praxis, by Rob Burton and Roland Bird- the cover strip for this issue.

Not This Time, Johnny Tomorrow- a cautionary tale from the past, courtesy of Robert Ferrie and Simon Hayes.

Oscar Maltby- By The Bloody Code.

Oscar Maltby? What has he got to do with FQP? Well, he’s written a strip for us for the next Something Wicked, Tales of the Scooper- Downtime (pic to the left) and he’s also written an E-book!

By The Bloody Code is available from Amazon for a paltry 86p- so what are you waiting for?
