  • The cover was printed by Chris Flewitt’s printer. I prepared the colour layers with just a cheap magic marker and a bottle of whiteout, on sheets on thin paper.
  • Hollis Dill was a pseudonym for Glenn Dakin (he was living in Dollis Hill, north London, at the time). Kato Loco is a veiled homage to Krazy Kat.
  • First (and only) story by Rian Hughes to appear in Fast Fiction.
