Our mission

Are you that special person who - weary from trudging the endless superhighways - just longs to camp next to a glorious oasis of the mind? Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

Billy Bishop

Canadian air ace and VC winner, Billy Bishop died in his sleep on September 11, 1956.

His official tally of 72 kills during WWI made him the most lethal air ace in the British Empire. Nicknamed "hell's handmaiden" by the Germans, he had a reputation as a lousy pilot, but a rather accurate shot. He had his own cocktail named after him, the Billy Bishop bullet.
