Christmas on the Magothy: We Have a Winner!

Back in August, Gillymole Press announced its return to mainstream publishing with the Christmas on the Magothy Serial Fiction Contest, which we here at the NBTC were so excited about until some idiot who was still bent out of shape about a series Gillymole ran…what?…four years ago or something (get over it people, at some point we have to stop… (more…)

The Ledge: Why the Funicular Railway Ends in the Middle of Nowhere The passengers to make the inaugural climb on the Funicular Railway included four of the city’s top ranking officials, a cub reporter who had no business being there, and a man nobody in Nagspeake is sure ever existed.

Nagspeake: A Magothy Jewel
