‘You have to go back in time to change a predicted future. If you can predict it today it’s already too late. This sounds paranoid but it’s also amazing.’
In her lead essay in the Summer edition of Meanjin, Briohny Doyle ponders technology, time, sex and paranoia, with illustrations from Mandy Ord. Also in this issue, Behrouz Boochani and Omid Tofighian maintain an online conversation during The Last Days of Manus Prison, and  Katharine Murphy charts the decline and fall of Malcolm Turnbull.
Plus: Mark McKenna, Yen-Rong Wong, Melissa Lucashenko, Eloise Grills, Sumudu Samarawickrama, Guy Rundle, Shastra Deo and Shaun Micallef.
