With its radical blend of utopian socialism and science fiction, William Morris's novel News from Nowhere caused a stir when it was first published in instalments in the Commonweal in 1890. The narrator William Guest awakens to find himself in a utopian England in the 21st century. Industrial buildings have been transformed into a pastoral paradise; civilians are dressed in 14th-century costume; there is an abundance of openair markets and wooded areas and gardens; and money, prisons and divorce have been abolished. In this vision of a socialist future, individuals have the freedom to choose their own economic and creative pursuits. Two years after its initial publication, the novel became one of the first books printed by Morris's newly founded Kelmscott Press. A copy of this rare edition - only 300 were produced - is held in the National Art Library at the V&A; this publication is a reproduction of that volume. Morris oversaw all aspects of the original production, from the selection of the paper and ink to the choice of his own Golden typeface and the position of the printed matter on the page. The result was a timeless triumph in book design and making. This new edition makes Morris's design available to a wide audience for the first time.

Poet, pattern-designer, environmentalist and maker of fine books, William Morris (1834-96) was also a committed socialist and visionary writer, obsessively concerned with the struggle to achieve a perfect society on earth. News From Nowhere, one of the most significant English works on the theme of utopia, is the tale of William Guest, a Victorian who wakes one morning to find himself in the year 2102 and discovers a society that has changed beyond recognition into a pastoral paradise, in which all people live in blissful equality and contentment. A socialist masterpiece, News From Nowhere is a vision of a future free from capitalism, isolation and industrialisation. This volume also contains a wide selection of Morris's writings, lectures, journalism and letters, which expand upon the key themes of News From Nowhere.

A new collection of hilarious stories from Richard's much-loved ABC radio show, THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY, in the style of his previous collections, IN BED WITH JOCASTA and DESPERATE HUSBANDS. 'Full-on, uncontrollable, laugh-till-you-weep stories. Glover has become the indispensable chronicler of Australian family life.' Geraldine Brooks Wickedly funny stories of everyday life, as heard on ABC Radio's thank God It's Friday. Meet the sexy and feisty Jocasta; confront teenage rebellion in the form of a fish called Wanda; do battle with magpies the size of small fighter jets; try to work out which font you use when speaking the language of love; and find out what men really have to offer. In Richard Glover's stories, the day-to-day becomes vivid, magical and laugh-out-loud funny. 'Glover is better than Proust. OK, maybe not better, but how often do you find yourself in a cold bath at midnight still chuckling over Proust?' Debra Adelaide 'desperately, wickedly funny ... Richard Glover has done the miraculous - he's made ordinary family life extraordinarily entertaining ... Go ahead and open a page at random - you'll laugh out loud.' Augusten Burroughs
