Five days left until plate-licking, ribbon-tearing, hopefully sun-shining Christmas day. That means there’s also five days left to take advantage of our Christmas offer: purchase a gift subscription to Kill Your Darlings for just $50 (usual price $58), and score a free book. We’ve got a couple of copies left of the most coveted holiday titles: Black Inc.’s Best Australian Essays 2010, Andrew Mueller’s Rock and Hard Places and Scribe Publications’ New Australian Stories 2, and if you hurry, you might snaffle the last one.

It’s a great end-of-year treat for a loved one, or for yourself. Simply click here.
