For the past forty years we’ve brought you wild works from writers new and established. This year, we’re saying cheers to four decades of writing with an extra special print edition.

Going Down Swinging #40 is both a retrospective celebration of all we’ve published and a look forward into the future of storytelling. The book is crammed with words, comics, art and spoken word, some new, some from our favourite back issues.

This edition features a perfect storm of writing from the likes of Winnie Dunn, Julie Koh, Eloise Grills, Ellen Van Neerven, Tony Birch, Eleanor Jackson, Fury, Bella Li and a whole blast more, plus illustrations by Maeve Baker.

Edited by Magenta Sheridan and Renata Carli, designed by Carolyn Ang, and printed by Complete Colour Melbourne.
