Antipodes, Vol. 27, No.1
AAALS, US$47 p.a., 120 pp, 08935580
No matter what the state of local publishing of Australian literature and criticism, twice a year the loyal members of AAALS continue to produce the readable and enlightening Antipodes. The June 2013 issue includes some splendid poetry by Tom Shapcott, Jan Owen, and Ali Alizadeh, and several less well-known names, and a mix of stories that move beyond fiction in Jeremy Fisher’s memoir of his father’s war experience and Graeme Kinross-Smith recalling his work teaching creative writing. Lucy Neave and John Kinsella contribute engaging, if more conventional, fiction.
