223 pages. Simon 'Specky' Magee and his Under 14s football team, the Booyong High Lions, return to battle out the second half of their league's season. The Lions are playing well and Specky's form is looking good - perhaps good enough to win a scholarship to a prestigious sporting school. But a knee injury sees him sidelined, and suddenly his future is filled with uncertainty. Will his team make it to the finals without him? Will he be able to play if they do? And how is he going to impress the talent scout if he can't play footy? Meanwhile, he'll have to deal with his rival and worst enemy, Screamer Johnson, and he will meet the mysterious Tiger Girl and the Great McCarthy. Join Specky Magee as he finds out why there's more to being a champion than just being a legend on the field. For upper primary and lower secondary school age children.

The Butterfly Month, Ariella Kornmehl
143 Ariella Kornmehl The Butterfly Month
Australia Scribe 2007 1921215267 / 9781921215261 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
187 pages. Joni, a young doctor, leaves behind a painful, failed love affair in her native Holland to work in a hospital in South Africa. She lives in a protected community with an African housemaid, Zanele, who tends to her needs, and offers her solid and devoted friendship without expecting much more than wages and a roof over her head in return. Joni's life is ordered, rational, organised - keeping at bay the threat of spontaneity or surprise. This young and vital woman lives like a prisoner, sacrificing freedom in exchange for a protective sense of order. Her life is built upon a framework of duties and habits, and proceeds with the certainty, efficiency, and deadly pace of a machine. South Africa seems a strange home for someone seeking this kind of sterile confinement, and gradually the lives of Zanele, along with her vivacious daughter, Shanla, begin to intrude on Joni's isolation. As they begin to forge a relationship with her, so the spirits of Africa penetrate her life and begin to erode its sense of controlled precision. And as Joni finally realises that she, too, has unwittingly become emotionally involved with the lives of her African friends, the vulnerability of her life in post-apartheid South Africa is made all too clear. In a mesmerising denouement, Joni finds herself at the mercy of 'the God of Africa' and exposed to chaotic, brutal forces that she cannot control. 'The Butterfly Month' is an edgy, haunting novel that derives immense power from its disarmingly gentle tone. There is curling in some pages.

Scarface, Armitage Trail
144 Armitage Trail Scarface
UK Import-L 2019 0747578613 / 9780747578611 1st British Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
187 pages. Tony Guarino grew up in the hard world of the bar and the poolroom, where every gangster was a hero and every cop an enemy. Only the tough made it. When he was just eighteen, he killed Al Spingola, gang boss and ruthless slayer, and was catapulted into notoriety and fame, but that was to be just the beginning of his rise to dominance. Maurice Coons, writing under the pseudonym Armitage Trail, gathered the elements for 'Scarface' when living in Chicago, where he became acquainted with many local Sicilian gangs. He prowled the murky streets of Chicago's gangland with a friend every night for two years, returning home to put to paper and write a book which somewhat documented his experiences. The resulted novel was 'Scarface', and it was worth the effort. Not just a thinly disguised biography of Al Capone, 'Scarface' is a gangster tale surprisingly rich with character and atmosphere. The story moves at a cracking pace, and from the machine guns, brutal deaths and beautiful gals emerges the tragic tale of one man's downfall from his ruthless ambition and love for friend and family. The source for the 1932 Howard Hawks picture, as well as the Brian de Palma remake.

Experiential psychotherapies in Australia, Armstrong, Dick; Boas, Phill (editors)
147 Armstrong, Dick; Boas, Phill (editors) Experiential psychotherapies in Australia
Australia PIT Pub 1980 0949833042 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 8vo 
197 pages.Includes bibliographical references. This book highlights the present state of experiential therapies in Australia. These therapies, we believe, will continue to in?uence psychotherapy, professional training and society at large. However, with the progressive move towards specialization, there is a real danger of fragmentation, resulting in technical excellence with little or no regard for the broad mainstream of third-force humanistic psychology. Hopefully, the organizations and institutes that are emerging to promote the various experiential therapies will be able to incorporate the humanistic values, which were of such importance in the early days of experiential therapies in Australia. Dick Armstrong, Gosford Phill Boas, Melbourne December, 1979.

Good God, he's green! A history of Tasmanian politics 1989 to 1996, Armstrong, Lance
148 Armstrong, Lance Good God, he's green! A history of Tasmanian politics 1989 to 1996
Australia Pacific Law Press 1997 1875192085 / 9781875192083 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
159 pages including b/w illustrations. This is Lance Armstrong's fifth book. Three of the previous four books were on justice and peace issues which, he says, are an integral part of the Green agenda. Following many years of political activism through the Green movement, Lance Armstrong was elected to the Tasmanian House of Assembly in May 1989. Soon after his election, he became one of the five Green Members of Parliament to sign the historic Accord agreement with the Tasmanian Labour Party. He was re-elected in 1992, but lost his parliamentary seat in 1996 by the narrowest of margins. Indeed, the recount that was granted to him set a historical precedent - being the only recount that has been granted in the history of the Hare-Clarke proportional voting system, dating back to 1909. Lance Armstrong is also an ordained minister of the Uniting Church of Australia, having been ordained in 1974. He says that it is his theological understanding of the Christian Faith, his faith convictions, that has led him to identify so strongly with the Green movement. Since October 1996, he has been working again as a parish minister at St. David's Uniting Church, in Albury NSW. He has kept up his active interest in Green politics and is now also the Convenor of the Albury-Wodonga Environment Centre.
