Well not quite. But what I’m trying to get at is a little bit of time travel and a lot of your generosity. But let’s start at the beginning. In a manger not far from you a website was born called Metazen and three kings who were more than slightly tipsy on the wrong stuff and some shepherds that told their sheep to go wander elsewhere were asked to bring gifts for this shouty baby. And they did. And they begat-so-and-so and they begat-so-and-so and this child of all things Christmassy and whispery notions crafted a Christmas publication which you should go and have a butchers at. It was published on Christmas Day but time slipped away from me and someone spiked my sensibilities with red wine and a stonking cold. And let’s be honest Jesus was probably high on his own supply but nonetheless I want to plug it as Frank Hinton (obviously that was baby Jesus’ real name) put it together with a lot of effort and Christmas time to arrange it all and he’s a Lovely fella.
The e-book is free to download over at Metazen but donations are most welcome. More information on where your Lovely pounds, dollars and cents go to are detailed here and to be honest it’s heading in the right direction.
It features an array of writery peeps who deserve a round of festive/New Year/anytime applause including the rather delectable Tania Hershman, the delightful Gerry Hayes, the rectified Boudreau Freret, the soporific Finnegan Flawnt and My Good Self.
