Look Mum, I’m on Kickstarter!


Who’s afraid of a toad?

I have just launched my first ever Kickstarter project, Mostly Harnless Meetings. It’s a zine full of whimsical random encounters in the countryside, inspired by English flora, fauna and folklore. Here’s a an example:

Oak: A circle of twisted, ancient oaks. The ground inside the circle, and the bottom halves of the tree, are covered in soft, thick moss an almost unnaturally bright green. This place has a good feeling about it, and would be an ideal spot to camp for the night. Anyone doing so sleeps very deeply, as will anyone who tries to stay awake and keep watch. They will awake feeling more invigorated than they have in years. However, in the night, fairies have been playing practical jokes, a different one on each person who slept here. They may find their shoelaces tied together; their hair plaited with nettles or braided together with somebody else’s; clothes may be swapped around, or altered with incredibly fine needlework: perhaps sleeve-ends are sewn up, gussets are removed or tightened, or the words “KICK ME” embroidered upon somebody’s back. A very detailed search may reveal the fairies sleeping in acorn cups scattered among the trees.
