“Britain is an island, but has nearly 6,000 of its own islands, hosting great wildlife from scorpions (10,000 in a brick wall on Sheppey) to hairy snails,” he says.

“I also write about the ‘Great Orkney Vole Mystery’, the secret islands of the River Thames, and freaky island folklore – from roof-ripping boggarts to the Shetlands’ friendly werewolves, and lots more.”

The magazine also includes a full page strip, “Amelia the Fox“, by London-based writer and illustrator Richy K. Chandler, who’s also the author of You Make Your Parents Super Happy!, When Are You Going to Get a Proper Job? and Lucy The Octopus.
