An illustrated book of short stories came out last year. It had previously been available only as an ebook. It’s a great collection – I reviewed it when it came out – and the illustrations add a new, quite unexpected, dimension.
Following the original publication I had the enviable job of interviewing the authors and uncovered a wealth of amazing admissions, surprising secrets and fascinating insights. To celebrate the illustrated version I thought I would draw them together here and share them again.
