Elephant’s coming titles

October 24, 2008

Soon to be released in the UK and North America for the first time:

Eric Willmot’s acclaimed novel

Eric Willmot's acclaimed novel

Pemulwuy:The Rainbow Warrior

(From reviews on Amazon)

“This is the story of the resistance of the Aboriginal people to the invasion of their lands. A gripping novel of an aspect of Australia’s contact history not often written about.” saliero (NSW Australia)

“After spending years in the Australian educational system being told there was no resistance to white invasion (settlement) of Australia, reading this book 13 years ago was a revelation. I guess (I hope) there is much more literature around about aboriginal resistance these days, but this book is both educational and a good read. Buying it again.” Kontich (Belgium)

And from a blog:

Pemulwuy is as “fundamental to Australian history as Captain Cook, Joseph Banks, and Mathew Flinders. Pemulwuy is as important to Australian history as Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse or Geronimo are to American history.” Posted by: Booker T

A review from LA on Louisiana Alba’s novel

A sly poke at genre fiction, literary untouchables and the publishing industry. Even though I wasn’t able to pick out all the literary styles — and frankly I was so into the story it didn’t matter — when I was able to pick up on an author or style it just added to the fun. A thoroughly enjoyable pulp story…

Paul Duran, LA director and writer (Flesh Suitcase and The Dogwalker), Los Angeles

‘Uncorrected Proof’ – first taste, good on the ‘palate’

October 22, 2008

So postmodern and referential. I delighted in your sources. You should come out west and do a reading sometime.’ Richard Olafson, Editor, Pacific Rim Review, Victoria, B.C.

‘A splendidly maintained & protracted metafictional elaboration.’ Tom Gibbons, painter, writer (Rooms in the Darwin Hotel) and academic, Perth

Quite an extraordinary work.’ Eric Willmot, author of Pemulwuy and Below The Line, Melbourne
