While poring over cycling journals from the 1880s and 1890s, author **Greg Foyster** stumbled across some enlightening historical anecdotes about our city’s first ‘wheelmen’ and ‘wheelwomen’. Here, he shares how our cycling history should make us view the bicycle in a new light., When **Annabel Smith** embarked on creating her interactive digital ebook *The Ark*, she realised how wedded we still are to the old-fashioned p-book ... and the obstacles (in terms of technology, distribution platforms and publisher attitudes) that lie in the way of writers wanting to harness the possibilities of interactive digital media to tell their stories., Why infection prevention research is crucial in stopping the spread of diseases like Ebola. David Lynch's LA (and our *Twin Peaks* tribute). A media editor goes undercover at Australian university journalism courses. Poland's mysterious crooked forest. And how asylum seekers in detention care for their mental health through poetry … and Facebook. and We speak to Nic Low, author of *Arms Race*, about about loving the undo button, talking writing with Alex Miller, raising our kids on a diet of stories, and accidentally writing activist literature.
