One day before Fantastic Voyages: Writing Speculative Fiction comes the Wellington launch of Issue 25 of Blackmail Press. It’s called The Rebel Issue, and among those with poems in the issue who have blogged about the launch are Harvey Molloy, Helen Rickerby and Janis Freegard (who has been having great success with both poems and short stories recently).
I haven’t read the whole issue, but if Harvey’s, Helen’s, and Janice’s poems are any yardstick it will be well worth going to the launch. Here are the brief details – see the blog links above for more:
