The International Writers Magazine: Archives 1999- 2010

Transmetropolitan - A Spirit of our Times - Steven Stemp
The New Year is a unique time, it allows us to gaze longingly back into the past, and to look hopefully to the future. To leave behind the mistakes of the old, and get ready to make entirely new ones

The Death Road
Biking the World’s Most Dangerous Route - J. Malcolm Garcia
It’s not compulsory that you die today.

Loving Titi
Fisayo Talabi
With one last look in Sade's face, he shook his head and someway, somehow, the words came out loud and clear. "I'm sorry, but I can't do this anymore. I still love Titi."
Writers & Progress in East Africa
Ronald Elly Wanda

The history of contemporary political ideas of Africa is a neglected field in the continent and more so outside of it.
Skins - Season Two
Ruby C Harrison review

Maybe I should be the first to say it. Put it out there and stop waiting for one more episode like an abandoned first date still filled with a puny hope that things willgo well. Truth is, the new season of Skins is utter crap.
The Heart of Cairo
Chris Wright

A journey into the largest city in Africa
Bringing Aung San Suu Kyi Into a Cambodian Classroom
David Calleja

Raising awareness of the plight of Aung San Suu Kyi among students through music in rural Cambodia leaves a song in their heart.
Wendy and Lucy
Tiffany Lee review

When a film captures the deep insecurities of modern society with little but a girl and her dog, it makes you wonder, should the Hollywood majors be looking to independent films for guidance in getting it right?
What is news?
James Campion

This is a subject I talk about incessantly with colleagues: What is news? In other words, what should be something we know about nationally...
The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness
Sam North review

Brilliant writing about Todd and Viola's struggle to survive against Mayor Prentiss's vicious army in a world filled with vivid intense frontier people clinging to life and honour in total insanity. Stunning reading for all.
Let the Right One In - Directed by Tomas Alfredson
Aby Davis review

Something spooky has come over me, in recent months I have found myself cautiously peering into the genre of horror and being pleasantly thrilled with the results.
Michael Jackson 1958-2009
James Campion

From the start, Michael Jackson was the bread-winning, bacon-hauling strength and breath of the Jackson Five
American Hunger by Richard Wright - Jessica Schneider
Imagine reading a great classic novel like Betty Smith’s A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, and then reading "a follow up story" about Francie Nolan in later years. How can a writer expect to have a successful follow up of what already is a great work?
First steps to Gladrags
Dean Borok

There was no point to sticking around Montreal any longer. It was 1982 and the economy was in the tank. I packed up my design portfolio, and caught the Montrealer express train to New York
Time To Eat The Dog? - The real guide to sustainable living by Robert and Brenda Vale, - Charlie Dickinson review
If everyone on Earth shared equally the lifestyle enjoyed in North America, then five planet Earths would be needed. Obviously, an unattainable proposition.
Reflections of a Backpacker: Melbourne + Hoey Moey
Dan Cann

The overnight Greyhound bus arrived in the early hours at Melbourne, capital of the State of Victoria. Ben and I booked in at the grand looking 'Toad Hall Hotel.'

Karaoke Girls by Shakil Rabbi
I have always been interested in Cambodia and so was excited at the chance of seeing it, in going on an adventure.
From Saigon to Angkor by Jeff Fitzgibbon
It’s hot, it’s flat and it’s straight as a rail, cycling in Cambodia is an exhilarating multi-dimensional experience, if just for a moment, the piglets stopped their squealing

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
Nina Aumaitre Review

This is a book about how it is so easy to misunderstand others, or to miss calculate how much of an impact we can have on them
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Tom Harris

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is Larsson's social portrait of a corrupt, modern Sweden. He uses the unconventional characters of the novel to explore this using the themes of abuse, control and revenge.
Health Care Finale
James Campion

The Clock is ticking for Democrats. Can they get something done?

The Last Child
Michael Hammond

Fistfights, car wrecks, and frequent arrests told the story of Jim’s twisted life

Talibé Child
Natalie MacDonald

You can see us, in filthy dog-eared trousers or a bedraggled t-shirt which is three sizes too big and falls past our grotty knees.
