Welcome all to another issue of the ASP Literary Journal, Issue #9. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jackie Biggs for leaping into the breach for this issue. Jackie has been a guest poetry editor before for us and it was a great pleasure, and no uncertain relief, when she agreed to act as editor for this edition. We are back to the situation of having an open call from the poetry community for volunteers to act as guest editors. So, if there's anyone reading this who fancies a go, or knows a poet who might be interested, please email me.
While you're visiting our journal, why not pop into our shop and purchase some archive copies of the journal or Jack's book of gruesome short stories. Also coming soon, 'The Displaced' by Sharif Gemie, the story of two young lovers caught in the turmoil of post-war Nazi Europe - a harrowing tale of love, loss & hope.
Enough chat - time to read - So, dip in, stay for as long as you like, or have time for. Remember we are always here, if you only have time for one story now, maybe another time you’ll have time for a longer stay. Enjoy, have fun and we hope the content remains with you long after you have left.
Dogs Darnborough, Editor-in-Chief.
