HOBBITS: EMPIRE SUBSCRIBERS
I wanted to jump in and say congratulations on 200 issues of the exceptional Empire Australia! Thank you for having me along for the ride. I am proud to say I have been here since the beginning and have every issue. To commemorate, I’d like to share an Empire story with you. A couple of days before Christmas 2015, I went to New Zealand and visited Hobbiton and took along a Hobbit edition of Empire for photos. I’ve included one of me as a Hobbit getting my Empire home delivered, and one that shows Bilbo Baggins is also a subscriber! However, a few minutes later I slipped and fell down a steep hill still clutching my ‘precious’ copy of Empire. Unfortunately I broke my leg in four places! I’ve had a few operations and my mandatory reading material each hospital stay is Empire. Thanks for keeping me company, I look forward to the next 200 issues!
SHUAN RUSHBY, VIA EMAIL Thank you, Shuan! The fact you went to Hobbiton and took pics featuring Empire? AWESOME. The fact you broke your leg? NOT AWESOME! Best wishes for a speedy recovery, friend!
