It's nice to see so many writers in and around Melbourne getting their work into print. Paul Collins, who has been plugging away has had quite a few works hit the streets recently. It must be old hat to him. For some of the newly published writers, every stage brings a fresh glow.

Jane Routely, back in Melbourne again, has the cover of her paperback edition for show-and-tell.

And Ben Bova is about to fly into town for a book tour. Signings, interviews and hotel room instant coffee - that's about a glamourous as it gets. Dates will be published in the events section when we get them.
