No bones about it, Smith Journal volume 27 is a mammoth issue – and it’s out now in Australia. Inside you’ll meet a Japanese scientist obsessed with jellyfish and immortality; an Australian couple reviving a nearly lost film format; Mexico’s self-taught (and only) forensic cleaner; and the Quentin Tarantino of Uganda’s slums. You’ll also learn about Andrew W.K.’s favourite things; meet the woman paid to read unreadable documents; take a mouth-watering trip to discover the history of barbecue; and praise six dogs good enough to get their own statues. Oh, and you’ll spend time with a group of woolly mammoth ‘hunters’ who risk life and limb unearthing ancient beasts in northern Siberia. Dig it? Go grab a copy now!
Across the ditch: Volume 27 should hit stores in New Zealand on June 25. Ask your local if it's not on shelves then.
