Product description

Product Description

I am a scientist by training, and a writer of history by inclination (and going on reviews and awards that I get, I’m not a bad history writer, either). I bring robust scientific search and research methods to bear on historical questions, and everything is stored on multiple devices, but it is also meticulously curated.

I write a great deal about Australian history, both for the popular adult market, and also the younger reader, who represents the future of Australia. What I am sharing now is a cross between a large card index and one of the commonplace books of a now somewhat ancient writer of history who has, over the years, used many of these quotations, though others are as yet waiting their moment.

The collector of these words anticipates being Collected in the next dozen years or so by a chap on a horse named Binky, and he plans, ere then, to enjoy advanced middle age, which means slowing down on the writing front. I may still draw on this stuff, but if you are in the same area, jump in: be my guest!

This page takes you to the third of the separate volumes:
‘Not Your Usual Anthology of Verse’ (often-quoted English verse, #7);
‘Not Your Usual Science Quotations’ (a treasury of science for writers, #8); and
this one: ‘Not Your Usual Australian Vignettes’ (Australian history quotes, #9).

The price for this as a separate volume has been set low, mainly because most of it will also be found in a severely HUGE 1.6 million word collection, #11 in the series, probably out in mid-May (at the latest) under the title Not Your Usual Australian Voices. That last one is to be a freebie, mainly because it is already available elsewhere online as a free PDF file.

So, in summary, you can opt to take up separate volumes like this one, or just grab ‘Not Your Usual Sources’, (Not Your Usual series, #6). That will always represent a major saving, because I want to encourage people to reach out beyond their comfort zone.
