With twenty-four fabulous back issues, one to mark each day of Advent, we hope to share with you the joy and magic of the season. When you purchase an issue on its corresponding day on our Advent Calendar, not only will you be collecting great literature, but you will also receive a special gift.
Today is the eleventh day of Advent, and the issue that holds the secret prize is Issue 11, Summer 2016
Under Kris Sayer‘s Songbird award-winning painting you’ll find a smörgasbord of summer reading.
- Taste the transience of heroism in Matthew Hooton’s feature story, ‘How to Write an Obituary for a Superhero’.
- Memory is bittersweet and frangible in the sharply chiselled ‘Chipping’ by Jono Naito, the haunting ‘As If My Every Word Has Turned to Glass’ by Robert Jeschonek, and the ominous ‘The Third Man’ by Michael Ryan.
- ‘Finding Relatives’ by Susan Pieters is laced with the subtle western nuance of small-town California, half-way around the world from ‘Yellow Scarves’ by Jonathon Dalton, a tale based in Chinese history with relevance for today.
- Discover if the rich reward of loyalty is love or death in Mel Anastasiou’s ‘Seven Swans: The Sword and Pikestaff Mystery’.
- Sweet dreams come in Amy Fant’s ‘Babies for Sale’ and in poems from PA Levyand Megan Waring, but nightmares come to life in ‘The Third Man’ by Michael Ryan.
- We satisfy our readers at last with the final chapters of Allaigna’s Song: Overture by JM Landels … but don’t blame us if you wind up wanting more!
If you’d like to take the element of chance out of the equation, sign up for our daily email where we will crack open each window early. We’ll give you a heads-up on the day’s bonus before you buy, along with an inspirational quote from Your Writing Muse.
