33 Big Cats on the Prowl (Cover Story)
It's been a while since FT last reported on Britain's alien big cat sightings. In our bumper ABC supplement, Merrily Harpur looks back over the last few years of ABC activity, while Jen Ogilvie collects the feline facts from the mountain of newsclippings sent in by readers.

44 Cats in the Bag?
Australia is rich in zoological oddities found nowhere else on the planet, but although the subcontinent can boast many fascinating creatures, big cats do not number among them. So why do reports of mysterious sightings, inexplicable stock predation and strange roars in the night continue to pour in? Ruby Lang and Michael Williams investigate.

48 The Witch of Kings Cross
Jack Sargeant explores the dual worlds of art and magic inhabited by the Antipodes' most famous occultist, Rosaleen Norton, whose life and work attracted little more than scandal and harassment in the respectable world of 1950s Australia.


57 The road of the dead by Stefan Beck

58 One of our professors is missing by Guy Lyon Playfair
