With the exception of monthly subscription despatch, all has been curiously quiet on the Enchanted front for the last couple of months. So it was with interest that we investigated a mysterious missive that made its way to us all the way from the Real World. The only name provided for the sender was simply Snout. We are suspicious. Surely not correspondence from one of the notorious Pygg Brothers (Pygg the Elder, Pygg the Younger and Pygg in the Middle, proprieters of the dubious property rental outfit Pygg Lets, recently seen in court pitted against none other than Mr. B. B. Wolf)? If so, why the pseudonym – ‘snout’ surely being somewhat ‘on the nose’, so to speak? Or perhaps it is an elaborate double bluff – but in any case, why?

Apologies for the temporary closure of the ETPrintworks store. This is due to a Real World family emergency. Hopefully everything will be up and running again in a few weeks’ time (the April issue of ETM will be available for a period in May to make up for lack of availability in its designated month). It is possible the shop will re-open for pre-orders in the meantime – please sign up for notification on the store homepage. Thank you for your patience and consideration.
