Australian literature rises from its grave

Our little Oz Lit comp proved remarkably productive. Who wouldn’t want to read titles such as The Man Who Loved to Eat Children, My Brother Vlad, The Mandible that Signed the Paper, Summer Of The 17th Golem, Picnic at Hanging Rope, Seven Pickled Australians or Tomorrow, When the War Began With Mars? But after great deliberation, we’ve decided to award the free sub to Mike Beggs, who came up not only with The Undead are Many and Dead Kelly, but also the truly horrific John Howard, Prime Minister by David Barnett and Pru Goward. Oh, and here’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, too.
