After a year-long hiatus, Phantom Kangaroo has resurrected for issue no. 18. The time away felt like a loud void, my universe flattened and I began to want it back the way fireworks stretch and wail for the stars.
Featured in this issue are all the makings of an interstellar mystery — that is alien landings, some crushing fear, a dead spouse, a kidnapped girl and a Mojave ghost story.
In the future, we will have Google Hangout readings of our issues. You can view them or potentially participate in them, by following Phantom Kangaroo's Google + — google.com/+Phantomkangaroolit.

" … until the dirty teeth of night
pierce my thoughts
and devour them
like tiny rabbits
spit out the soft fur
these few lines
and the crystal stars
of your eyes"
