Editorial - Issue 09:04

Issue 11:01Welcome to Issue 09:04 of Perilous Adventures. This issue includes a bracing essay by Sandra Hogan, who explores the contemporary literature of atheism and faith in the light of her own struggles with religious belief. We've also got new works by Marlyn McDonald, Sue Pearson, Sarah Moor and Michael Wilding.

This issue, our author interview is with Steven Lang, the author of An Accidental Terrorist and 88 Lines About 44 Women.

Don't forget, too, that entries for the Perilous Adventures short story competition close at the end of this month.

We hope you enjoy the many delights of our latest issue.

warm wishes
