Letters from the editor – Billy the Naive Fool

Just recently, having reaped the rewards of a stellar year for Descent-World, I was sat by my stone hearth, fire roaring with a marsh mellow gently toasting on the end of a golden fork (inscribed “ditari aut mori tryin”) and I thought to myself – I’m so glad I came into mountain biking for the money.
