AKLO news

    What now seems like ages ago, I was contacted by my pal, Ivan McCann about submitting something to a “zine” he was planning to do. I said, sure. Let me see what I have or can up w/. Having fallen under the spell of Kristamas Klousch’s beguiling art, I’d written a text based on several of her works. I sent it to him and he was rabid for it.
     He already had a few tales and some artists committed to contributing. I asked if he needed more tales. He said please. So I asked some friends and writers I highly regard. Almost all of them said yes. He liked my suggestions and their submissions and things developed.
     As subs and artwork for Ivan’s zine came in he began to think of doing not a zine but a book and somehow I became co-editor.
     And now it’s at the printer.
