Cockaigne Weekly 19th December 2014

WS - Article digest... Here’s this weeks digest / round-up of online articles and news from our fellow London websiteers if not ourselves…
This covers Friday to Thursday of this last week so if you’re reading it Friday (today) treat yourself to a proper Christmas skive while the boss isn’t looking (or, perhaps, while they’re looking at the same thing!) or relax with a brew at the weekend and catch up on the great things out there. Here’s to the whole diversity of media and genre we love here: Film, TV, SFF, Music, Comics, and Books – not to mention a few short story selections…

And there’s other great stuff to discover on their home pages, from before if not the week just gone.

Read on and check it all out!
