no bones about it, smith journal volume 27 is a mammoth issue – and it’s out now in australia. inside you’ll meet a japanese scientist obsessed with jellyfish and immortality; an australian couple reviving a nearly lost film format; mexico’s self-taught (and only) forensic cleaner; and the quentin tarantino of uganda’s slums. you’ll also learn about andrew w.k.’s favourite things; meet the woman paid to read unreadable documents; take a mouth-watering trip to discover the history of barbecue; and praise six dogs good enough to get their own statues. oh, and you’ll spend time with a group of woolly mammoth ‘hunters’ who risk life and limb unearthing ancient beasts in northern siberia. dig it? go grab a copy now!
