Daily Diamond: Aussie edition
"for want of a jesusman", by Jason Fischer (Aurealis #42) is a standout in the most recent issue of the magazine, although it does keep good (if somewhat scary, story-wise) company!. Fischer's growth as a writer is evident in this powerful, sort of post-apocalyptic story, with an anti-hero surviving in a strange world of Now by any means necessary, until he finds himself fighting for something more than himself. There are moralistic overtones to this story, but they are neither overt nor out of place, and Fischer demonstrates once again that he is an author to watch.

Disclaimer: I have published work by Jason Fischer and worked with him in various Australian publishing endeavours.
