Completely Amazing Issue #39

The absolutely amazing Ghost Bus issue has been mailed out this week. Honestly we feel it is one of our very best with covers and art by Wishbone Zoe on the East Coast and Alexis Rhone Fancher covering all the photography from way out West (as far west can you can go without getting your feet wet). There are 23 stories by 19 writers, some of whom you well may recognize and a handful you just might not. Here are some images of the issue, and if you haven’t subscribed already now is the time. Start with this issue, buy subscriptions for friends and show them how hip you are. Thank you everyone. Doug & Sally

                           Ghost Bus

Edward Gory, Gahan Wilson, and Charles Adams are standing on a street corner when the Ghost Bus goes by. They all saw it, but each saw it differently. What did you see when it went by, or were you a passenger? Just who rides the Ghost Bus anyway, and where the heck is it going? Wait… is that Miyazaki’s Cat Bus coming the other way?
Tell us your best story in approximately 50 words about what you saw.
