Magic Carpet Press requests the pleasure of your company in ARCANUM.

All characters are welcome -- Starsky & Hutch, Professionals, Brothers, even Dynasty -- whether from T.V., films or books. Write and share your favourite pairings with us, when you first became aware of the relationship and (if possible) why. Tell us about your favourite books or films on the subject.

We need letters, poetry, artwork, fiction, ads, reviews, and anything else that you want to share.

Deadline for issue one will be 25th April.
