Some Favourites From Special 194


Did you manage to pick up a copy of Special 194?

It really was a cracker, if we do say so ourselves! Plus, it seems to have gone down well with our readers, too, which we’re so pleased about!

We packed it with some great stories and fascinating features. There was even room for a brand new writer, in amongst a host of old favourites.

Last week on our Facebook Live broadcast, Features Ed Alex and Fiction Ed Lucy took some time out to talk about the issue, and what they liked most.

It was a great wee discussion, which also touched on our process for signing up new writers, the new addition to our Classics Collection (“The Inheritance”, by Annie S. Swan), and our new online Pan Macmillan vouchers.
