Amid scenes of wild jubilation, Creighton Broadhurst, Publisher of Useful Items at Raging Swan Press, emerged blinking and dazed into the daylight to announce to the expectant gathered throng that the print manuscript of the Dread Thingonomicon was complete and at the printers.
Channelling Winston Churchill, Creighton addressed the throng saying, "Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."
There is more to do. The PDF editions remain to be compiled, but that won't happen until the physical proofs have been inspected and signed off. And, of course, I'd be insane to not at least attempt to do some marketing and suchlike.
But, both the end and the beginning are now in sight.
Creighton Broadhurst is the Publisher of Useful Items at Raging Swan Press. He lives on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity. He is not planning to voyage far.
