It has been close to 6 months since the last full issue of The Baird's Tale. For this I am sincerely apologise. Life swept me up alas.
However, dear reader, as a reward, we offer you a great deal of stuff this issue. Two new poets I am pleased to introduce: Hannah Chubb & Kenny Koberstadt.
Further we branched out beyond the pure written world. Maps and comics have long been passions of mine so I am very happy to have now a resident map maker, Sam Fisher. Maps are art, visual metaphors that shape and morph our world and our perspective.
Husein Panju also takes us into the world of comics.
Lastly, I am very proud to announce Kylie Bergfalk, our long suffering poetry editor has been promoted to Co-Editor. Without her hard work, fine proof reading skills and focus this issue would not have been possible.
This is a big issue and it is a long summer so take the time to enjoy reading it – we certainly enjoyed producing it.
The Baird's Tale.
