[size=100]As a comic book fan and Abandoned’s no.1 fan (Sshh don’t tell anyone) I’m ecstatic about the news! The book will be out this summer and will feature art by Neill McClements (Part 1) and Anthony O’Neill (Part 2). From my advantageous inside point of view I can let you know before anyone else that both artists have done exceptionally well on bringing the writers story to life.[/size]

[size=100]For those of you who enjoy a much more in depth book that’s a bit more like real life, then Irish Writer Stephen Coffey has just the thing to satisfy you. His book “The society for the remarkable suicide” is an adult book based around some of the ideas around suicide. Although this book is bold and for adult readers only and some people may have a problem with it, it’s one of my favourite stories from Stephen to date.[/size]
