The Christmas Staff Party 2012

Welcome to this year's Chrstmas Staff Party. As usual it's been done in conjunction with Staggering Stories.  However, no more Mr. Dalek! Nope, we've decided to do something we've been meaning to do for 21 years! Way back when, the fanzine Star Beggotton had a one off piece, The Secret Log Of Jean Luc Picard. I enjoyed it so much that I asked it's authors, Tim Munro and Nick Cooper, to write more for my own 'zine, Private Lives.

So, this is that first section, narrated and produced by me, Siobhan Gallichan (in case you were wondering).
