Overland on Late Night Live on Thursday

Overland 196 features an interview with Thomas Shepherd, a man who spent two decades as an undercover informer inside the Communist Party of Australia and the Socialist Workers Party in the 1970s. This Thursday, he talks with Phillip Adams on Late Night Live about living a double life and its consequences.

The new issue of Overland will be officially launched after a panel discussion at the Melbourne Writers Festival between British SF author China Mieville and Overland contributors Margo Lanagan and Jack Dann, hosted by Overland‘s Rjurik Davidson. It’s on Saturday 22 August at 2.30 pm at ACMI 2 in Federation Square. Note, though, that because it’s a MWF event there is a charge for entry.

Overland is a not-for-profit magazine with a proud history of supporting writers, and publishing ideas and voices often excluded from other places.
