The mysterious Melbourne-based Litmus Journal has been in bookstores for a while now – from Australia to London – starting with Litmus Minus Three and building momentum through Minus Two, Minus One and Zero to the inevitable Issue One, currently on sale. Each issue is themed and publishes work by an expanding community of emerging writers, artists, illustrators and photographers. Recently the founders launched Litmusphere, an ‘online magazine fashioned by the faithful’ released in weekly installments online and with a limited print run. According to editor Chris Flynn they are totally into new contributors. We started by bolstering their worthy ‘zombie haiku‘ campaign: ‘I thought I shot him; The thing is to kill the brain; We got a twitcher’. [illustrations by Pat Dalton]
