I’m not sure if this was a slow news week or perhaps I just wasn’t keeping a close-enough eye out. In any case, I’ve included a variety of pieces, to give you something to keep reading before the week’s grind continues. If any readers out there ever have a tip – by all means, send it our way!

Luc Besson is set to write and direct an adaptation of the 1967 piece Valerian – if it has any of the energy and style of something like The Fifth Element, I’d be pretty happy

Aurealis #79, old news or great news?

Aurealis #79

Why not both?

While most of you readers are probably  already aware, Aurealis #79 has been available for around a month by now. Due to a change-up in staff, we dropped the ball on letting you know about this one – sorry! Aurealis #80 will be following hot on the heels of this issue. Look out for it imminently!

Issue #79 features the likes of established writer and environmentalist Melanie Rees with the poignant piece ‘The Monster Under the Bed’, and Lachlan Huddy’s outback yarn, ‘The Whore and the Healer’.

Terry Wood concludes his future-gazing in part two of his History of the Flying Car, and Chris Large interviews Shane Abbess, writer/director of recently released Australian sci-fi flick Infini. #79 follows up with a good swag of reviews.
