Voorslag (Whiplash) was a literary journal published in South Africa from 1926 to 1927. Sold as ‘A Magazine of South African Life and Art’, it appeared monthly until February 1927, then bi-monthly for one issue and finally finished its run as a quarterly: one in a long succession of little magazines from the Pringle-Fairbairn South African Journal (1824), which sank after two issues after having been torpedoed by the threat of censorship, to Stephen Black’s (1880–1931) Sjambok, which was launched in 1929 only to be shipwrecked by a libel action in 1931, and beyond.
