New Wave and Backwash : 1960-1980, Damien Broderick , single work column

Argues that by the early 1960s science fiction writers had become complacent, recycling with minor modifications a small number of tropes and ideas. But with the emergence of the New Age Movement, inspired in part by the Vietnam War, there was a retreat from Enlightenment science and values, and speculative fiction was reinvigorated.

(p. 7-15)
Pinlighters, John Baxter , single work correspondence
John Baxter responds to a review of his work, A Pound of Paper. He also defends his claim that Gerald Murnane is one of Australia's most visionary writers.
