Cover Story: Make Me Smile

Our annual fiction edition is here, and this year we present some truly fantastical interpretations of our theme, ‘Make Me Smile’. Inside you’ll find office pirates, apocalyptic bucket lists, slimy bosses and scentless monsters. We have chosen 13 standout stories from nearly 300 entries – a wonderful mixture of pitch-black humour, haunting tales and outlandish silliness. The design of the edition is also in keeping with the theme. In between stories, you’ll see some of the world’s funniest people photographed by US-based celebrity photographer Matt Hoyle. From covergirl Joanna Lumley to Ricky Gervais, Tim Minchin, Jennifer Saunders and John Cleese – we’re featuring great comedians striking grin-inducing poses. Best of all, the fiction edition has an extra 16 pages. Great fiction, funny photography and excellent value for money!

Also in this issue:
Our ‘Vendor Profile’ interviewee is Paul from Adelaide. And our ‘Streetsheet’ contributors are Stevo in Perth, Sharon and Dangerous Dave in Melbourne, John C in Brisbane, Daniel K in Adelaide and Jason in Sydney. Jason is also pictured hanging out with celebrity chefs Heston Blumenthal and Neil Perry.
