BACK TO GOTHIQUE AND STARDOCK MAIN PAGE

I was proud of Gothique, but of all the independent press publications I was involved with, Stardock pleased me most. Tagged "A Gothique Publication", it concentrated on the two genres closest to my heart - science fiction and fantasy. I was the editor; David Griffiths took care of artwork and layout, though, as with Gothique, we both involved ourselves with every aspect.
