The real story of "The baker's son"

On our latest issue, we printed this story by Paul Paetzel, and unfortunately, we printed it wrong. Two of the pages were printed in a mistaken order and the last one went missing!

So if you have a copy, maybe you read this story and thought "wow this guy sure is crazy, this doesn't even make any sense!" Well, yes, he IS crazy, but I can tell you that this story DOES make sense!

Here is the story, complete, and in its correct order, for your reading pleasure

For all the upcoming book orders, we have printed an errata sheet which shows the correct order of the printed pages and has the missing page printed in full size on the back. We would've done this earlier, but as ashaming as this sounds, this mistake went unoticed until a few days ago, when the artist himself emailed us.

A big apology to Paul, for sharing his beautiful work with us, unbeknownst to him that something like this could happen. We're very sorry, and also with you readers, who put your trust in us, expecting a well edited anthology. This was our first mistake, and I hope it is also the last!

Anyway, if you haven't got our issue 2 yet, now you've got a full taste of one of the gems we received for it! Can you imagine what else hides beneath its pages? I can give you a hint: it's all amazing, in spite of the editing job.
