Some excerpts from Issue One:

‘I don’t think there’s really any one genre in particular that I prefer. Writing is just part of me. The reason I chose to start with fantasy is that I loved the idea of creating a world where everything and anything is possible; a world that mirrors our own in various forms of technology. Fantasy is one of the most interesting genres, I think.’
From Focus: CL Freire, an interview by Steve Sweeney.

‘Ed Roberts had been Milville’s first to sign up when Americans were called to a war on terrorism. He wanted to go to Afghanistan, find Bin Laden, and strangle the bastard who had killed his sister. Ed’s picture had been in the newspaper, in his Army beret as he was set to ship out, in his desert camo as he stood near an armored vehicle in Helmond. He’d bought beers all around when he’d came back on leave, and he told gut-chilling tales of combing mud-huts and caves for a villain who always seemed one step ahead.’
From ‘Dawn Patrol’, by Solitaire.
