Libby Sommer / Stories from Bondi
Stories from Bondi centre on women - their joys, doubts, loves and realisations.
Mark Filmer / Three Steel Teeth: Wide Comb Shears and Woolshed Wars
This is the first detailed account of an industrial dispute that revolutionised Australia’s iconic shearing industry and led to the total demise of the AWU in the industry after it stubbornly refused to embrace technological change.
Roslyn McFarland / All the Lives We've Lived
‘This is an exceptional novel - a work of the imagination edged with compelling reality.' - Robert Adamson
John Blackhawk / dogs barking in the distance
‘Verse with the power of the jet stream, delivered from an ocean of tales of pithy erudition.’ - Bob Douglas
Greg Tome / Tilting at Time
‘Tilting at Time offers a vivacious yet emphatic rendering of the minutiae of Australian life.’ - Lucy Petchell
Leigh Swinbourne / Shadow in the Forest
Evelyn Carter, a young idealistic zoologist, travels to Tasmania as part of a project to keep that heat turned up. Deep in the wilderness, alone, she is confronted by an extraordinary event that will challenge both herself and her deep love of the natural world.
T.M. Collins / Until a Shrimp Learns to Whistle
A compellingly mordant yet profound and moving meditation on the ephemeral quality of our existence.
Andrew Drake & Martin Christmas / D&M Between 2 Men
D&M Between 2 Men is a collection of personal and vulnerable stories in poem format that examines some of the issues on the minds of these two younger and older poets.
Natalie D-Napoleon / First Blood
The poems in First Blood explore our sense of belonging, confronting the bodily, visceral, antediluvian connections that we share with our homelands.
May Morris et al. / Warm Corners
The Warm Corners women are connected by place and by relationship. All have spent time on the land called ‘Warm Corners’, shaped by the Jingalalla River.
Anthony J. Langford / A Refugee's Rage
Two stories. Two individuals. One journey. One destiny.
Melinda Jane / Nature's Nuptials
Traverse landscapes, ride in a race, cut skylines and paste metaphors on your lips. Melinda Jane’s poetical words are as refreshing as a steaming cup.
Brenda Eldridge / Connecting
Connecting is not a holiday travelogue. It tells how I made connections - connections that unified a lifetime’s experiences.
Kate Cramond / Beating My Breast: A diary of life and connection
If there are any perks from breast cancer, Changing Your Life should be one of them. Yeah, right. Nearly a year out from my diagnosis - just when everyone expects me to dust myself off and move on - I’m dull and dreary and utterly bogged. So I start a diary.
Marilyn Revill / Aubrey's Game
With his engaging wit, Aub was a fascinating character. Generous, talented and warm on one hand, he could also be austere, critical and unwittingly selfish on the other.
Colleen Keating / Hildegard of Bingen: A poetic journey
‘Colleen Keating brings to this impressive collection some very fine, positively Hildegardian qualities - a robust earthiness, an inner strength, a passion for justice and a fiery light.’ - Dr Mary O’Connell

Carol Patterson / State of the Heart
Carol Patterson’s arresting style infuses her short stories with fresh, vibrant life.
Dominic Kirwan / The Holy Babble
The Holy Babble is a sumptuous feast for the imagination. In this Hieronymus Bosch style drive-through, Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny steal the Christ myth. Panty thieves, monkeys chained to word processors, and rebellious talking ants inhabit decrepit fringes of the city of Moralpanik.
John Egan / The Mahogany Ship
Was the Mahogany Ship, first sighted in 1836, half-buried in sand dunes in the south-east of Victoria, the wreck of a Portuguese caravel?
