If you’ve been following the progress of Kasterborous Magazine on the Facebook group, you’ll know that the first issue is now nearing completion (with a big chunk of the second already completed).
Featuring two (TWO) interviews with Doctor Who star Matt Smith and chats with writer Tom Macrae, artist Paul Hanley, actor John Guilor and columns from Elton Townend-Jones and the Valeyard, this is a labour of love that we will be making available in print and digital formats.
Kasterborous editor Christian Cawley, associate editor Brian A. Terranova, sub-editor Philip Bates and contributors Alasdair Shaw and Scott Varnham, and reader Christine Grit have all contributed articles, while podKaster and real-life illustrator James McLean has bent time itself to produce the design and some stunning original visuals.
