Editorial:


Sea Dogs and Profs Take a Wiggly Walk to the Bank (Gwen Davies)

Niall Griffiths, in his dispatch from the South Atlantic, ‘Last Day on St Helena', distinguishes between the things he witnessed as a tourist (Napoleon’s house) and those as an invited writer (‘the social structures of the native gay community’).


Mary-Ann Constantine’s essay, ‘Coastwalkers and Curious Travellers’, further clarifies any possible confusion between sightseers, travel writers and psychogeographers, the latter practising ‘a way of moving through (usually) urban environments designed to resist the official, municipal, or tourist-approved… routes.’ Reviewing Peter Finch’s Edging the Estuary, a record of a fittingly ‘wiggly’ walk along the Severn, she notes it is ‘presented as a form of anti-tourism, an act of “insubordination to habitual influences”.’
