There are more than two reasons to go out and pick yourself up a copy of Extempore, but the first two that come to mind are:
1. Paul Squires’ piece, Teardrop Tattoo appears (and an article by Gabrielle Bryden, in memory of Paul); and
2. It is the final issue of the magazine.
It is sad that Squires is not with us to share the joy of seeing his words in print, but I know for sure he is smiling down on us somewhere, wit and pencil, sharp as ever.
Long may the gingatao narrative live!
