Familia Souldiez Vol 40 - Love Triangle

I'm on production duty for this month's volume in this long-running series. Most of the regular krew were well-behaved and came through in good time with some outstanding picks. That is, except for the G MAN, who has gone Missing In Action (probably getting TOO MUCH action !); so I had to cover the cover !! To my (albeit prejudiced) ears, this one is right up there with the best that this sweet series has had to offer; and I have to admit that the standard has been consistently pretty high. I hope you all agree. Thanks to the tight team for their efforts once again. Let us know how we are doing - there are many hundreds of downloads but very little feedback. Enjoy ! RossyBoy
