Editorial - Issue 10:01

Issue 11:01Welcome to the first 2010 issue of Perilous Adventures. We're looking forward to an exciting year of new adventures in writing, with plenty of time to read and write.

This issue, we welcome our new reviews editor, Carla Billinghurst. To introduce herself, we asked Carla to write an article about reviewing.

We're delighted to be publishing two poems from the esteemed Australian poet Mark Tredinnick. Mark is an award-winning writer whose most recent book is The Blue Plateau: A Landscape Memoir. We're sure you'll enjoy his poems: Red Moon Eclogues and Wingecarribee Eclogues.

In this issue, we interview acclaimed and highly successful American crime novelist, Lisa Unger.

We hope you enjoy this issue, and remind you to consider submitting for our upcoming issues. Click here for details about how to submit.

warm wishes
