In my humble abode of oak-beamed Tudor cider house, there is, at this moment 
in time, a rather large pile of A4 powder blue magazines resting upon the 
lid of the pianoforte, in close proximity is an equally large tower of cds 
encased within their powder blue sleeves.

Each one of these magazines has been hand-produced, put into page order and 
stapled together. The contents of tit-bits, articles, reviews and down-right 
strangeness have been delivered through my letter-box by the Royal Mail from 
contributors all over the world. The cd has been here there and everywhere 
to get it completed.

Its taken about a year to put together, involved the efforts and good will 
of many folk, most of whom I've never physically met. And you know what; its 
been fun. It will be even more fun to see the pile lessen as your letters 
come in and the envelopes go out all over the world creating some kind of 
transient physically existing network. Its like when people hold hands and 
create an enormous briefly lasting human chain across a country

even better was Mr.Kirk reading issue one and going "well that bits 

oh go on buy a copy........
