Blinded in the pursuit of revenge...
When pushed to the limits by a crooked copy who has been involved in the recent death of a prostitute and the machination of a secretive sect with connections within the Victorian Police Force, a psychiatrist develops an obsessive thirst for revenge which directly threatens his marriage and career, including his roles as a father and husband.

Description:

(from Afterword)
'My interest in this, what can I call him, this Australian psycho, came about because of my efforts at writing and publishing accounts of the cases of the famous Queensland detective, Doctor Watson Holmes Jackamara. Unfortunately my interest in the case from the position of my subject palled, for as Jackamara said: ‘This bloke left a trail that you could follow in a four wheel driver.’ Because of this, I was about to conclude that there was little interest in writing the case up, but when I had my first interview with Dr. Jefferson Davis. I instantly saw that this was where the interest lay. Dr. Jeff Davis at that first interview expressed interest in being the subject of a book. To some extent I agreed with him and continued the interviews. When he was not under the complete control of his medication or his delusions, he was quite, well, charming. I also found a fascination in delving into the perverted mind of this serial killer, a unique but brutal man who, thankfully, for the good of the world, remains incarcerated in a hospital for the criminally insane hopefully for the rest of his life. In my judgment, formed over a hundred and ten interviews, he is too great a danger, to society and to women in general, to be ever released. I found him utterly incorrigible, a psychotic who not only believed his fantasies to be real, but used them to initiate a series of murders which he labeled as acts of vengeance. His deeds shocked Queensland at the time and the Courier Mail headlined it as AN INDECENT OBSESSION.' - Mudrooroo
 
'An Indecent Obsession' is a new novel from the author of 'Wild Cat Falling'.

Description:

Adventure ~ Action
Danger ~ Derring-do
Rip-snorting action adventures of the What If... What Next... and, most importantly, the And Then... kind.
A cohort of Australia's best genre fictioneers, and one bold Kiwi, present a fabulous and strange collection of action-packed adventure stories - each featuring two heroes.
The two-volume And Then... anthology features page-turning and genre-bending stories by 32 award-winning, established and emerging Australian writers of crime and speculative fiction. The settings are historical, futuristic and contemporary; the heroes are human, animal, alien and mythical; and their adventures are real-world, far-out, speculative, horror, mystery, science fiction and fantasy.
Welcome to And Then... Volume One in which 15 authors travel in time and space from Australia of the Gold Rush to an all-too possible dystopian future, from the Outback to Europe in the 1950s and the 21st Century, and from an apocalyptic New Zealand to worlds of steampunk fantastic and outer space exotic. Their heroes are flawed and fabulous, brave and humble; and their tales are enriched with panthers and budgies and demons and dragons - all manner of creatures real and endangered, ridiculous and heroic.
And Then... the Great Big Book of Awesome Adventure Tales Volume 1 features:

Description:

Once upon a time, in a land Down Under, from the depths of the Clan cave, Clan Destine Press issued a challenge to Australian and Kiwi authors to write cliff-hanging, Australian-flavoured, action-packed adventure stories for two protagonists; stories of the What If, What Now, And Then... kind.
This was a catnip call, an irresistible lure, a kid-in-a-candy-store kind of a challenge: what writer wouldn't want to take a crack at that?
To make it that little bit more intriguing, the editors decreed the stories could be contemporary, historical, realistic, far-out, spec-fic, horror, SF, or urban fantasy; and, in a spirit of mischief, that at least one of the two protagonists must be human. You'd think that would cover all bases.
But writers are a contrary bunch: they pushed these very broad boundaries even further. The result is not one, but two volumes of kick-arse, action-packed stories: And Then... The Great Big Book of Adventure Tales.
This is Volume 2: a fascinating collection of genre-bending adventure stories garnered from a mix of sf, fantasy and crime writers, happily encroaching upon each other's territories, and then some.

Are We There Yet?

A$11.99
Public Purpose

(click here for links)

Description:

Digital transformation across the public sector has stalled. After over 25 years of considerable time, money, and effort at national, state, and local levels, we’re still not 'there' yet. The reason is that successive waves of investment in digital transformation have focused largely on improving the transactional functions and activities of government. They have failed to embrace a bigger challenge - the need for governing and government to rethink a new 'theory of the business' - which that same revolution has caused and to which it is an inescapable part of the answer.
 
This is a unique, timely, and distinctly Australian look at a global phenomenon by two 'reflective practitioners'. Their personal and practical experience of digital transformation in government and the public sector in Australia suggests it is a story missing half its plot.
 
Packed full of insights from government and digital leaders from around Australia and across the world, this is a much-needed practical guide for public servants and leaders in any jurisdiction. It contains insights and ideas about the way digital technologies, and their associated tools, platforms, and cultures, are changing the business of governing and the design and delivery of public policy and services.
 
"Are We There Yet? lucidly diagnoses how digital technologies, including AI and big data, are transforming the role of the public servant and the project of governance itself. Stewart-Weeks and Cooper describe the important shift from power to problem-solving and explain how to harness digital transformation to make government work better for all of us.” - Beth Noveck, author of Wiki Government, former Deputy Chief Technology Officer in the Obama White House, Professor in Technology, Culture & Society, New York University and Chief Innovation Officer for New Jersey
 
"I've read a lot about the potential impact of digital technology on public services … this is the first book to persuade me that the power of digital, properly conceived, really can transform the nature of democratic governance." - Professor Peter Shergold AC, Chancellor, Western Sydney University, Former Secretary, Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet

Description:

Arrabella Candellarbra is like no one you've ever met before, even though her questy thing is the stuff of legend. Okay, the hilarious epic-fantasy spoofery adult fairy-tale kind of legend.

Arrabella joins forces with Lord Langley Kilkenny - the perfect specimen of manliness; icicle-bearded Gary - the wisest of all Wizards; and Prince Jim - the very-fey fairy Regent.
The Four Adventurers soon find themselves pitted against the Evil Betty-Sue - the meanest of evil beings in all of the lands - and her scary minions. Yes, our heroes must defeat Sawtoothed Bunnies, Viscous-Tongued Frogs and the Barella Monkeys to rescue The Reginas from... something!
Nothing could possibly go wrong on a quest like this, could it?
Featuring heroic heroes and a host of characters and creatures never before assembled in one story, this epic fairy tale for grown-ups delivers love and lust, action and inaction, battles, incantations, sexual shenanigans and high-kicking sing-a-longs. It promises that all those epic questy things will never be the same again. Seriously!
