A New Home for Football Writing: the Blizzard is a new quarterly publication for journalists and authors to write the football stories that matter to them. Issue Zero is available for free pay-what-you-like.

Just so's you know, I'm sure both of your posts are fantastic, but I can't comment until the next time I go to the bathroom as I sent them to my Kindle.

Well, I posted them from the bathroom, so there's a nice symmetry there.

*Clarification : Not your bathroom.

Edition Zero has an interview and an article in it by Philippe Auclair, about whom I have a dirty French man-crush, so it was worth a purchase for me and then the long Football Manager story was a total added bonus.

The story isn't quite up to Pro Vercelli standards, but that's a high bar.

For those on the fence it's 188 pages long and you can grab it for 1p, which is about 496 American Dollars, maybe*. If you like it and feel cheap later you can always buy the issue again for whatever you feel it's worth. Minus your original penny.

* not really

I know what a person once upon a time could do with reading material in the bathroom when there was no TP. But what is current alternative?

Ironically, reading material could also have been used as kindling, but I have a Kindle myself, so I'm not coming down on that side of the argument.

Thanks for all the links, Bismarck.
