Our mission

Are you that special person who - weary from trudging the endless superhighways - just longs to camp next to a glorious oasis of the mind? Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

Night of the murdered poets

The Communist Party of Australia experienced some popularity with Australian artistic and media types during the 1950s, with members including Phillip Adams, that painful ABC gardening presenter who retired recently, and artists, novelists, painters and poets including Katherine Susannah Prichard, Judah Waten, Frank Hardy, Eric Lambert, Allan Marshall, Noel Counihan and poet David Martin.

All of which reminds us that August 12 and 13 is the anniversary of Joseph Stalin's night of the murdered poets.
