1 Comment on Parallel Universe Publications to publish Craig Herbertson Collection

  1. I think I initially sent you the wrong contents list, David. I should also say a big thanks for getting this project off the ground. The Heaven Maker has been out of print and quite rare since 1988.

    Looking forward to the launch in Edinburgh on the 15th.
