That’s it, for now…Edited by Ivor Indyk

The final issue of HEAT?

That’s it, for now… is likely to be the final issue of HEAT in print form. It opens with Freud and Mahler strolling through the pleasant Dutch town of Leyden in Andrew Riemer’s ‘Four Glimpses of the Zeitgeist’, and closes with the late Peter Porter’s celebration of cats and Brisbane. There are new poems by Robert Gray, Vivian Smith, Lisa Gorton, Peter Boyle, Ali Alizadeh, Kate Fagan, Jennifer Maiden.

Gillian Mears reflects on being photographed lying unclothed under a mirror with a red balloon. Justine Ettler traces the family’s inheritance of gambling and alcoholism to the great grand-uncle who built Wyong racecourse. Andreas Campomar examines the image of Uruguay through the writing of Eduardo Galeano, Amanda Simons interviews Antigone Kefala. Marion Campbell responds to Samuel Beckett in the gloom, Adrian Martin to devastation in the films of Maurice Pialat.

In fiction, new stories by Christopher Cyrill, Carrie Tiffany, Vivienne Stanton, Nicholas Jose, and a preview from Mandy Sayer’s new novel Love in the Years of Lunacy. The featured artist is Jenny Watson and her new series ‘Classic Black’, in full colour.
