Yes – that’s me there. The flowing red dress. The skull. The riding crop. The enormous book of dirty stories. The crystal ball … because I’ve been looking into the future.
We did it back in December, but what with line-up changes and the unceasing flow of time I thought I might ask round the Lusties and find out what they’ve got in the pipeline for future publication, and what they’re working on right now.
(PS: I may have been lying about the flowing red dress. And, you know, about being a model for a dead Victorian painter. Though actually that has possibilities as a plot…)
So in no particular order here’s what I saw in the mystic crystalline depths:
