If you only read one account of the past three years, make it the one with lots of swear words in it.

When the pandemic hit Australia, and Victoria in particular, a then-unknown blog called The Shot emerged through the haze as a voice of reason, comfort, hope and swear words. As one lockdown blurred into the next and curfewed Melburnians sought community, connection and a counter-narrative to the warped reality presented in the Murdoch press, The Shot became one of the most influential independent voices in the Australian media landscape.

This 320 page anthology collects the best essays published over three difficult years, from politics to the pandemic, corruption, media ethics and bias, and sexual justice.

Each piece is accompanied by a new introduction from authors David MilnerGrace TameCharles FirthRonni SaltNadine von Cohen and Greg Larsen.  

"More than any other writer, Dave captured the Victorian mood during the dark days of the pandemic"
- Simon Holmes a Court
"I work for News Corp and The Shot definitely has a point" 
- Anonymous News Corp journalist
"The writers at The Shot are so brilliant they really should have got one of them to do this quote." 
- Wil Anderson
