From a flyer: "A Collection of Prose, Poetry and Art based on Robin of Sherwood. In the heart of Sherwood Forest, there are tales to tell, dreams to dream, and songs to sing. Come into the greenwood, and see what awaits." From Media Monitor: "Join us in Sherwood Forest, where there are tales to tell, dreams to dream and songs to sing.... Material from all seasons. The zine features laser-pring text on vellum-finished recycled paper, and a surprise with every issue."
