What the Dickens? Magazine launched in December 2011 as a bi-monthly online magazine. Each issue, we set a glorious theme to inspire creativity and lots of lovely folk contributed their stories and poetry, art and photography. Some of the themes we had included : Snow, The March Hare, Sunflowers, Pumpkin and Heroes & Idols. After 8 fabulous issues, we created a new and brilliant website which is now home to many more interviews, articles, reviews and contributions. During this transition, we had received entries for an earlier theme we had set ‘The Busker’ which we did not want to waste! They were too good! So, with the help of Ben and SelfSelfSelf.com, these wonderful stories and poems have been collected to make this truly amazing anthology.
