Small Worlds by Alex Raizman

TATTOO

Tattoo is getting better and better!

By Fiona Gregory, editor

Jul 27, 2009: EDITOR NOTE: This series ended Oct 2011, sadly, with the unexpected death of the author.

ORIGINAL REVIEW:

Tattoo is getting better and better with each new chapter in this series of dark supernatural adventures.

ELEVENSES: THE DARING EXPLOITS OF SECRET AGENTS 1111 AND 711

No title

By G.S. Williams, author of No Man An Island

Apr 12, 2009: When I was young(er than I am now) I found myself a fan of the cartoons "Tiny Toons" and "The Animaniacs."
