Brunatics Rejoice!

Fans of Bruno the Bandit, Ian McDonald or just good writing in general, it's a good day!  Long after hanging up his pen on Bruno, Ian McDonald is writing again!
Ian has begun posting his short stories on Wattpad, starting with three very powerful tales, "Bloody Buddy", "President Cthulhu" and "I See the Moon and the Moon Sees Me".
I've been lucky enough to be given to read each of these stories (and others yet to come!) in advance, and let me tell you, you're in for a treat!  Ian's writing has matured in interesting new ways since ending his webcomic, and these stories show some entertaining and insightful new directions for his work.  Ian always had a way of subtly working social satire into his Bruno strips, but with these new works, there's more than just humour...Ian draws on politics, popular media and personal experience to create stories that are equally amusing, horrifying and touching.  Each of them are a great reading experience, and taken all together they show that Ian is developing into a decent writer well beyond the scope of his previous work on Bruno.
But don't just take my word for it...go see it for yourself!  Head over to Ian's profile page at Wattpad and check out these stories, and see if you don't agree with me!
