Dreamtime - An Aboriginal Odyssey
eBook (ePub): $2.67
Dreamtime: This is the story of a man on walkabout, in Australia, around 60,000 years ago. The myths, legends and wonders of Aboriginal society are many and vast, passed on by word of mouth for... More > tens of thousands of years. If we assume that the ‘religion’ of these people dates back so far then we have to assume that creatures such as the diprotodon, megalania, and thylacoleo walked the earth as they did. I have taken the liberty, whether justly or otherwise, to put these sacred stories into story form, so that there appears to be a more rudiment meaning to the entire development of Aboriginal Dreamtime, which is an eternal way of life and carries with it some sacred meanings. The main character in the book, Nalon, is a fabrication, created in order to achieve my goal. Last but not least, a warning: Kulinma! Ngulakujaku-kula! This book might contain names of people who have since departed this world.< Less

eBook (ePub): $2.63
The Zuytdorp departs the Cape of Good Hope, Table Bay, with the ship Kockenge. She pulls ahead of the Kockenge due to her being a much larger and faster vessel. Due to the departure being in April,... More > opposed to the favourable March, the skipper decides to sail until sighting land before turning north for Batavia, to take full benefit of the winds from the west and the voyage then to the north. But catastrophe is all they meet, no success in voyage to be celebrated. The Zuytdorp is shipwrecked. This is their story, the story of the survivors of the Zuytdorp, a part of history that is known by but few men. There is evidence to show that Aboriginals of the Shark Bay area suffer from Porphyria Variegate, a gene mutation that is traceable to the Dutch. It is uncommon and rare, and there is no reason, other than the coupling of an Aboriginal with a survivor of the Zuytdorp, that currently explains the disease being discovered in Australian Aboriginals of WA.< Less

On 21st May a ceremony was held where the last of the memories was purged by flame: symbols of the Nazi Regime, and the last of the huts were torched and burnt to the ground in one huge emotional wave of relief. This story is but one of many, which commences in the latter part of 1944, and concludes in May of 1945. It is a novel.< Less
