ONLINE ISSUE

Our October 2012 online issue includes an interview with Icelandic author Sjon – speaking on mythology, folklore, storytelling and song lyrics. We’re also featuring Eddie Wrey's short film, Palestinian Airlines, documenting the experience of an actor working in independent theatre under Israeli occupation in Ramallah. We've got an essay by Rye Dag Holmboe responding to Philip Pullman on the use of the present tense in fiction and its corresponding modes in film and art; an excerpt from Caspar Henderson's The Book of Barely Imagined Beings, published by Granta Books; and photographs from Mitra Tabrizian's Another Country series with an accompanying essay from Matt Mahon. Also featured in this online issue is new fiction by Wayne Holloway, the director of the forthcoming film adaptation of Lee Rourke's The Canal, and new poems by Stephen Devereux.
