Also included is a new work, made specially for this publication, ' "the lion tamer meets his end".   This painting will illustrate my mate Scott Wood's text, 'Fortean Camberwell', a wonderful collection of weird tales which make me proud to live in Camberwell.  
Scott will be leading a ghost walk around SE5 on the launch night.  You can also take part in an unwrong quiz and take away your very own copy of the Guide.
