Perilous Adventures magazine was established in 2008 as an email subscription newsletter to service the clientele of Olvar Wood Writers Retreat. Since then its readership has grown to include writers and readers throughout the writing community. In May 2009, Perilous became an online magazine, available to readers and writers throughout the world. (From Publisher's website). It features new Australian fiction, author interviews, book reviews, articles and opinion on writing practice, and an annual short story competition.
