My planned review of Deadpool was also fairly popular. As were the series of mini fiction Sci-Fi stories all set within the same overall story. And yes, I do plan to continue and expand the tales of that intrepid pilot.

I managed to get all the letters out this time, some days were better than others but I’m very pleased with myself succeeding in 2016.

So how did the month go for you?
