ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.

ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
'Long may this new series of HEAT continue!' - Sarah Holland-Batt
HEAT Series 3 Number 4 begins the second half of the year with an essay by the acclaimed Indian-born writer Amitava Kumar and a sequence of poems by rising Queensland poet Jarad Bruinstroop. Together, they set the tone for an issue that examines moral ambiguities, the power of persuasion, and the importance of faith. Ever an object designed to be loved and preserved over time, our August issue features new and established writers writing across borders and cultures.
