With rather un-piratelike apologies for the lateness of this post, we present the Summer 2014 PIRATES issue of What’s the Time, Mrs Woolf? for your viewing enjoyment! This issue contains articles, comics and illustrations from many dastardly wenches, and in the spirit of law-breaking and thievery a ROGUE MALE has even sneaked his way in…

Special thanks to our own Lilywoolf, for doing the cover, intro, contents, credits and other extra admin stuff for this issue, allowing myself a much-needed break for some freelance jobs. Keep an eye on the woolfblog, for in thanks I will be recording myself reading her excellent pirate-voiced intro aloud and posting it here on the blog.
