The second edition of Regime Magazine comprises an extensive array of poetry, fiction and performance writing that is Australian in essence, but international in outlook. The contributors include Australian writers such as Geoff Page, Ryan O’Neill, Shane McCauley, Kate Middleton, Andrew Burke, Graham Nunn and Roland Leach along with international authors such as Frederick Pollack, Karla Linn Merrifield, Paul Fauteux and Jonathan Greenhause.
'Contemporary fiction short stories, mainly by Australian writers, revealing the challenges and diversity of urban life. A couple, who have reached a crossroad in their relationship, picks up a surprising hitch hiker ... Two men are pitted against each other in an interrogation room ... A woman, speeding through the rain, rushing to an appointment, thinks she saw someone crumpled in the gutter. But did she? These are some of the stories that make up the second anthology of Lizard Skin Press. The authors include award winners and newcomers. Most of the stories are set in Australia - not the Australia you see in books but the one you may catch glimpses of around you. The catalyst of change can appear in an instant, close by, when you least expect it.' (Publication summary)
