Ad Astral Podcast, Episode 33:

The Frontiersman-Shownotes

Submitted by DJ Burnham on Friday 24th April 2020

(The Frontiersman was written in June 2015 on the Greek island of Naxos. This is its first appearance anywhere.)

This story was pretty much written as a stream of consciousness sitting on the beach at Plaka on Naxos. I decided to produce and release it as a piece of pure escapism from the confines of lockdown during the coronavirus epidemic.

The artwork shows a blend of the forms that Magnus takes on his travels and adventures.
