FICTION: Fear by Debasree Banerjee

“Tony Carvalho, that’s it!” the young man dressed in khaki uniform occasionally peered into one of the hovels on either side of the filthy, wet and slippery alleyway up which he walked towards the ‘90 Feet Road’.  It was a strange name for a road but Mumbai as a city is strange in character, and

BOOK REVIEW: Grief Is The Thing With Feathers by Max Porter

On occasion you come across a book that is so mesmeric, so delicate, intricate and beautiful that awe is the only appropriate response. Grief is the thing with feathers by (shockingly) debut author Max Porter is just such a book. Describing the novel is difficult. For a start, the term novel fails to adequately describe

FICTION: The Digger by Matt Gore

Pop was always in his cave. That was what Nana called it, his cave. It wasn’t really a cave though, because caves are dark and scary places, full of spiders and hand-sized wetas. Pop’s cave was nothing like that. It was warm and dry and smelt of pipe smoke, and I always thought of it

FICTION: Kids Today by Probert Dean

I hate visiting Nana. All she ever talks about is the past. She’s so miserable that she’s actually become a depressant, and infects those around her with the same affliction. I’m glad I only have to see her once a week, since we put her in the virtual nursing home. I dread to think what

FICTION: Paul by C.R. Berry

November 9th 1966 Sixty-five. Seventy. Seventy-five. Alyson Ramirez’s foot hit the floor and her 1964 Ford Cortina screamed, straining for speeds it wasn’t used to.
