The Outpost - Issue 6 Released

I've called it Issue 6 but it is just as comfortable being known as the Vol 2. Issue 2 version of The Outpost...or even the January 2008 issue of The Outpost. Whichever way you want to refer to it, the new issue of The Outpost has been released containing 8 new Australian crime short stories.

In this issue you can read about the dangerous cut-throat underworld of the flower industry, an ingenious, very convoluted bank robbery attempt, a neighbourly dispute that began with an overhanging tree branch (they never end well), some Op Shop action, one crazy ole artist, a police procedural investigation into a brutal assault that develops into a much deeper mystery, an almighty murder trial and a lesson to all mystery about the dangers of making rash assumptions.
