Landfall 223: Fantastic! PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Landfall 223: Fantastic! free pdf From the gothic and the carnivalesque to the speculative and beyond, this issue of Landfall pushes the bounds of the real and delves into worlds just-sideways of ours. We have fiction told from the perspective of a giant squid in Nina Seja's piece 'The Collectors', and a short story by Raewyn Alexander set in an uncanny not-so-distant future where 'reality TV is illegal' and live, unedited 'Life TV' is the only acceptable term. Also in this issue are Siobhan Harvey's shortlisted essay from the 2011 Landfall Essay Competition, and new poetry by Elizabeth Smither, Joanna Preston, Holly Painter, Therese Lloyd, Lynley Edmeades and more. Vaughan Rapatahana discusses traditional poetry in te reo Maori and Stephen Oliver confesses 'A Nostalgia for Books'. And of course there's brand-new book reviews in the Landfall Review.
