Dear Readers . . .
Our 15-month diary and pen set, which is included with this issue, is always eagerly anticipated, and I’m sure you’ll love the “Garden Birds Of Britain” theme we’ve chosen specially for you.
Our mini-mag this time is an eight-page murder mystery by A.J. Redcliffe. “The Moon Street Murder” is a gripping courtroom drama full of twists and turns – it will have you hooked to the last page!
We also have 14 original short stories by favourite authors such as Annie Harris, Mary Kettlewell and Alison Carter. “Cellar Songbird” by Lydia Jones beautifully evokes the atmosphere of the 1960s, and we take to the skies in Maggie Cobbett’s “Up, Up And Away”, which is set in Yorkshire.
Our travel writers have been out and about, admiring the Lakeland landscape in autumn, visiting Devon’s Fairground Heritage Centre, cruising along the Caledonian Canal, and enjoying a day out in the Fife town of Markinch. Further afield, Solange Hando falls under the spell of South America, and Alexandra Pratt goes dolphin-watching in New Zealand.
We’ve puzzles to test your wits, too, plus clever vegetable recipes to try and a cute draught excluder to make.
Angela Gilchrist, Editor.
