Volume 29 | Number 4 | Issue 128 | Summer 2019

Issue 128 coverThe print edition is currently available in good bookshops.

Sadly, Issue 128 is the last issue of the journal. Our application to Creative NZ for funding assistance has been declined and the board of the Peppercorn Press Trust and the editors of the journal have, with considerable regret, come to the conclusion that we cannot continue to publish.

We are very proud of what New Zealand Review of Books Pukapuka Aotearoa has achieved within and for the New Zealand literary landscape since the first issue in 1991. The archive will remain available online.

The financial situation of Peppercorn Press is uncertain as we still face costs for the printing and distribution this issue. We have established a GiveaLittle page to fundraise for our final expenses including the ongoing maintenance of the archive.

Visitors to this site will be able to access the archive content up to Issue 124 in the archive.
