Land Before Lines

Editor: Nicholas Walton-Healey
RRP: 69.95 (inc. GST)
Pub. Date: June 2014

‘A superbly crafted undertaking that investigates issues of subjectivity, objectivity and place, and carries a fascinating documentary quality.’ — John Kinsella

Author: Peter Bakowski
RRP: 19.95 (inc. GST)
Pub. Date: March 2014

‘The pleasure of reading Bakowski. The grand themes are all here; not in capitals, but in his captured details of our intimate solitudes.’
— Alex Miller

Author: Claire Gaskin
RRP: 19.95 (inc. GST)
Pub. Date: Nov 2013

‘Gaskin blends plain diction with perverse metaphor and fateful enjambment: images accumulate then thin out, like a tide. One line can be as heartbreaking as a dream; the next will undermine the language of hypocrisy, violence, or moralism.’ — Bonny Cassidy

Editor: Ronnie Scott
RRP: 29.95 (inc. GST)
Pub. Date: 2013- 10

Celebrating five years of sheer nerve and dangerous excess from Australia’s most exciting literary magazine. Strange, sharp fiction; totally uncategorisable non-fiction; poetry; and just a hint of Krautrock.

Author: Justin Clemens
RRP: 29.95 (inc. GST)
Pub. Date: September 2013

‘A fabulously irreverent rant … Scholarly without being ponderous, beautifully elegiac about popular culture and witty to boot.’ — Pam Brown, Notes on Recent Australian Poetry

‘The Mundiad is an antidote to the poetry of sensibility. It’s a roiling, bilious reminder of how good poetry can be when its propelled by an angry dismay at the world’s myriad inadequacies … a good old-fashioned table thumping, sternum prodding, bouncer baiting rant.’ — Dr Chris McAuliffe

Author: Fiona Hile
RRP: 19.95 (inc. GST)
Pub. Date: July 2013

‘Fiona Hile’s new book, Novelties, announces her poetry to the world as a pathematical tornado from the steppes … Novelties is absolutely singular poetry … It opens holes in knowledge and subtracts truths … Poets, beware: a figure like Milton or Lucretius walks here among us!’—AJ Carruthers, Cordite

‘Unique, subtle, exuberant and smart, Fiona Hile’s poetry is transformative, a sudden arrest in all the imagination can bear.’ — Peter Minter

    • Baddawi

      ‘Leila Abdelrazaq tells a coming of age story that is funny, angry and deeply human … Baddawi is the story of her father’s childhood in a Lebanese refugee camp. It is also the story of hundreds of thousands of displaced Palestinians.’ — Molly Crabapple, author of Drawing Blood

    • Beneath Our Armour

      Beneath Our Armour is unique. This sequence of portrait poems covers vast tracts of history, geography, and personae in a way that is at once intimate and epic.

    • Contemporary Australian Feminist Poetry

      Australia has a rich history of feminist poetry but there is no one kind of feminist voice.

      Each of the seventy new poems commissioned for this anthology cuts its own path through language. Together, their politics are restless, inextricably tied to the now.

    • Content

      ‘Content lampoons and laments the narcissism that accompanies the supposed information age … Ferney’s poems gun their way through a globalised economy with acronyms, diminutives, and inventive linguistic flares.’Gig Ryan


    • Devious Intimacy

      ‘This is arrestingly incarnated poetry diffused with female luminosity.’— Pam Brown
