A few things to get out there and make you all aware of so time for a newsletter....
Firstly a couple of things we have been up to.

Robert will have a table at this, come along and say hello / talk some toot.
Shatterday by Harlan Ellison – 3 out of 5.
This is a collection of 16 short stories ranging from 5 to 60 pages in length (well 60 pages is probably a novella or novelette). Over all I enjoyed it. I'm not really very used to reading short stories, as I'm more a novel person, but it made for a nice change.
