First edition June issue line-up

Issue 4 of First Edition Magazine,cover dated June 2009, the UK's new fiction magazine, will be hitting bookshops and newsagents May 7th and the contents list has just been announced on their website. Good to see Jack Martin's A Man Called Masters listed there. I wonder how long it's been since we've had a western short story at UK newsagents?

Congratulations, Gary.
Glad to see the magazine is still going strong. I sent them a story but haven't heard either way yet...

Nik - it too about eight weeks with me I think. Sent it just after the first issue so sit tight.
