Description:

Tales for those who never outgrew goosebumps
Here are stories for lovers of chupacabras and hulders, griffins and gargoyles.
Here be darkly cheery tales of ancient creatures beneath still waters, in the attic, or the shadows right by the bed.
Herein an autistic hiker meets a cryptid who wants her camera; a Japanese tanuki seeks his fox daughter; and two women fall in love, never mind one's a swamp monster.
Here be stories of changelings, nix, and demons adopted, of hungry kraken and cryptids we'd see if only, if only we looked into treetops, behind doors, or in our own back gardens.
Here there be monsters.
Thank all the gods.

...and then seen.
 
So very much seen.

Description:

Paul Wenz was born in France in 1869, lived in Australia, and wrote stories dealing mainly with his Australian experiences for the French. He wrote ten books from 'Nanima', his homestead in Forbes, New South Wales, including two collections of short stories and four Australian novels. He also translated Jack London and Joseph Conrad, both who came to visit him in Australia.
Diary of a New Chum and Other Lost Stories contains many stories never before published in English, and includes correspondence with authors such as Andre Gide, Miles Franklin and Christopher Brennan. Always the very essence of the Australia of Wenz's period, Diary of a New Chum and Other Lost Stories sparkles with irony and psychological insight and represents Paul Wenz at his powerful best.

A Young Woman's Adventure

Description:

A young Sydneysider in London, Lenore Blackwood, was getting work as an actress, pulling beers to pay the rent, and reading about Gandhi, Nehru, Menon and the very new Republic of India. Before the Hippie Trail opened, before Westerners in serious numbers heard the spiritual song of the ashram, or the material one of getting a foothold in the world's second biggest market, Lenore wanted to go where very few Westerners went.
For seven months in the 1950s she crossed the new nation from the Himalayas to Kerala and independent Ceylon. She visited cities like Bombay, Calcutta, Madras and Benares, cities whose names were already becoming extinct on the lips of the world. The diarist joined pilgrims to see the icy lingam of Shiva, one of the most arduous pilgrimages on Earth. She sought out be-by-herself walks through nature to see art: through exotic acacias and abandoned garden flowers, an elephant mother-and-infant's bath time, climbed to high places, and on to temples to rival those of Athens or Rome, and where the rulers' respect for the sculptors' trade surpassed them both. Welcome to the wonder Lenore Blackwood felt.
Yet most of this book is about people she met. Prem and his family stand out, then and for life thereafter.
This is a book for Westerners who find the sub-continent and its people fascinating, and fo rthe Indian diaspora.

Ryan Publishing

Philip Mulvey; Freya Mulvey

A$39.99
Groundbreaking Press

Description:

Practical solutions for agricultural management, enabling the restoration of landscape, climate and community.
Reaching zero emissions alone won't stop the Earth heating up.
There's another factor at play, even bigger than rising greenhouse gas levels: agricultural land use, and it is turning the world's bread baskets into deserts. In south west Western Australia, the 'Bunny Fence Experiment', the world's largest study of two contrasting land uses in the same vast region, showed strong evidence that clearing and cropping was the reason why rainfall over the Wheat Belt has dropped 20 per cent in the lifetime of some of us. This book tells of how what farmers do exports heat waves, dust and fire, south and south-eastward in Eastern Australia and north and north-westward in Western America.
You'd be forgiven for thinking there ought to be a law against it, but our lawmakers don't even acknowledge that under the air and the plants, there is anything but bedrock. Soil, the depleted carbon sink that still manages to feed us today, might as well be a vacuum in law, but it could be a saviour for our civilisations.
Ground Breaking has solutions too: manage land use, sequester carbon in soil, reduce bare ground and increase bush corridors.

Hard Wired
Life, Death and Triathlon
Emma Carney; Jane E Hunt
9781876498146
2021-07-01
A$11.99
Ryan Publishing

Description:

Fresh out of school and emerging as one of Australia's future distance running stars, Emma Carney discovered the sport of triathlon. The sport was never the same again. With an unmatched record, she devastated the international circuit. Defined by a relentless pursuit of sporting excellence, Emma was known to detest losing more than she loved to win.
At home in the cutthroat world of professional sport, Emma didn't expect a welcoming party waiting for her when she reached the pinnacle of triathlon. A fiercely independent athlete, fitting in and conforming was never her style. Rules annoyed her. Authority irritated her. And that complicated thingsā€¦
Emma's is a life publicly defined by winning. But like sport, nothing is predictable. Success is fickle, life is fragile.
Emma's story reveals that international sporting success is about much more than winning. Courage is a constant. Hard work and dedication are vital, as are unwavering passion, belief, and desire. But there is more. Emma's story also raises questions: who is truly there when things go wrong, when the system fails? Who cares when you find yourself dying on the roadside, saving yourself only to then lose your sister, identity, self-belief and hope in everything you once believed in...?

Her Voice
Greek Women and Their Friends
Varvara Athanasiou-Ioannou
9781875703418
2021-11-01
A$11.99
Kerr Publishing

(click here for links)

Description:

This book's introduction is clear about where culturally diverse women stand in the 2020s: 'while we have made some meaningful inroads towards equality, we are nowhere near enough to where we need to be.' Such women face the glass ceiling of their gender, and a cultural ceiling as well.
 
It assembles the voices of over 40 women from many walks of life, many of them high achievers, who detail the difficulties and the triumphs they have met within their lives. Their stories, strength and resilience inspire.
 
Her Voice arose from the Food for Thought network, founded 20 years ago in Melbourne, made up of Greek Australian women originally, but quickly drawing in other migrant women and daughters of migrants through friendship, love and the recognition of how much they had in common.
 
-----------------------
"...a beautiful book! it's such a triumph - the content, the design, the intent." - Maggie Hamilton, Sydney
"...A monumental book, a gift not only to Greek women but to multicultural Australia, a historical reference point for future generations ... it should be read by all men and women ... Touching, and inspiring" - Bill Papastergiadis OAM, Melbourne 
"...Narrated with an authentic voice, this book is a treasure trove of life journeys." - Zografina Kopanidis, Melbourne 
"Varvara's story and her book is beautiful and inspiring, a true display of intelligence, determination and empowerment ... These small windows into other womens choices reminds me how important relatable role models and mentors are for our girls." - Dora Kordakis, Melbourne
"I couldn't put the book down because literally and metaphorically I heard their voices. I cried. I giggled. I rejoiced. I connected with all of them. A brilliant book of historic importance." - Maria Makris, Melbourne 
"Many thanks to Varvara for introducing me to so many wonderful and inspirational women. In particular, I found the key events that shaped and assisted each woman in her journey, to be very interesting! There is certainly valuable advice for younger women who read "Her Voice: Greek Women and their friends". - Sandra Keown
"...Amazing book ... a valuable resource for anyone who seeks to understand the role of women within our community and beyond and Varvara Ioannou deserves our heartfelt gratitude ... she is a national treasure ... many of the achievements of women are glossed over, effaced or obscured. This volume allows Greek women of all ages and others connected to our community to speak for themselves. What they choose to say about themselves and their worldview is significant." - Dean Kalimniou, Melbourne
"It is a wonderful book with a lot to offer and Varvara should be very proud of having brought it all to us women from all backgrounds but especially for women of Greek origin." - Marina Marangos, Brisbane
