A column canvassing current literary news including an announcement on the publication of A. B. Paterson's The Man from Snowy River and Other Verses and a note that Ethel Turner's The Little Duchess and Other Stories has gone into print in London. The column also notes publication of Louis Becke's The Ebbing of the Tide and states that this novel received a 'full-page complimentary notice in the usually slashing and unmerciful Saturday Review'. (Sections of the review are quoted in the column.) Brief mention is made of publication of stories by Ada Cambridge and Ethel Turner in the Windsor Magazine: An Illustrated Monthly for Men and Women, July 1896.
