It's nearly Easter already and, just as you've come to
egg-spect, we have a hot cross-section of entertainment. It's simnely the
Sorry about that but I had to set an egg-zample...
(Boo! shouts reader)
OK OK, I'll stop and get on with the new edtion of
First out of the traps on our egg-hunt it's Donal Mahoney.

It's good to be able to welcome Martin Green back to
Winamop for the first time this year. Martin has been recuperating for a while
and I guess he has been watching a lot of depressing TV news! The resultant
story is called The End?
Is it time for a flash? Well, just a quick one! A couple
of contributors have sent in short pieces recently so here is a modest
collection by Harry Downey and KJ Hannah Greenberg. I hope to add more one
Whilst on the subject of KJ Hannah Greenberg, let's move
into the poetry section; here we find a new poem from her called Cold Enough
to See. Wrap up warm.
Paul Tristram is back with another half-dozen of his
excellent poems. If there's a theme to this collection it's probably one of

It's great to hear from Michael Lee Johnson again. I

Finally, we come new contributor Tempest Brew. I know

is dead. If you see this Tempest Brew then please contact me again!
Well, that's got us one quarter of the way through 2015,
let's hope we make it to the end.
I'm optimistic that it'll be a fun trip!
