Concentration Camp and Other Stories, Bingham, Geoffrey C.
3 Bingham, Geoffrey C. Concentration Camp and Other Stories
Australia New Creation Pub 1993 0949851078 / 9780949851079 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Good 12mo 
182 pages. Those whose literary tastes are varied will find a smorgasbord from which to choose. Geoffrey Bingham in this book is different from his other books. The title is partly misleading for the title-story is not about a prison camp. It is part-allegory, part fantasy. And it concerns us all: it is apt for the moment in which we live. The other stories are easy to read. One or two were written in the far past, but most in the past year. Whilst some are pure fiction they yet have the ring of truth. This author is breaking into a new kind of writing by telling the truth in a form which is not just propositional, but which is of the substance of our living. That is why people are beginning to see the truth from a new angle. Truth is alive for today. It is not a book to be laid aside for later reading. It is for now. It will stir not only the imagination, but the heart also.

To Command the Cats, Bingham, Geoffrey C.
4 Bingham, Geoffrey C. To Command the Cats
Australia Angus & Robertson 1980 0207142181 / 9780207142185 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
x + 149 pages. A masterly collection of short stories by a born storyteller, To Command the Cats displays Geoffrey Bingham's remarkable talent at its best. Sharp, poised, he is often wryly amusing, always perceptive. The stories are of two different kinds, of war in Malaya in World War ll and peace in the New South Wales countryside, at a place Geoff Bingham calls Wirril Creek. Between these two groups stands the brilliant title story, To Command the Cats, which in its tautness and sensitive perception represents Geoffrey Bingham at his most powerful. It exhibits in essence the current that runs through the whole book, uniting the stories of war and peace; a concern with individuals and their need to express, and uncompromisingly af?rm, their uniqueness.

The Gucci Kangaroo & other Australian urban Legends, Bishop, Amanda
6 Bishop, Amanda The Gucci Kangaroo & other Australian urban Legends
Australia The Australasian Publishing Company 1988 0900882506 / 9780900882500 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
110 pages with urban legends, fables for adults, Amanda Bishop collects a score of tales and stunts - however improbable. Well dressed kangaroos, A random breath testing units and of course crocodiles in the sewers all have one very important thing in common. All those stories which supposedly happened to a friend of an uncle of the person who told you arenít true - none of them. Amanda Bishop retells dozens of Australian urban legends - modern fables for adults, and explains why we are all so keen to believe stories which may be improbable, but are de?nitely very funny, like how a bunch of trendies were ripped off by an elegantly larcenous kangaroo. But be warned, that absolutely true story you heard last week might just be in this book. Readers love to believe them. "The Gucci kangaroo" may ring a bell with many people: the stories really did happen or did they?

Australia Mark Macleod Books 2002 0733615333 / 9780733615337 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo Terry Denton 
150 pages. Another collection of Andrew Daddo s hilarious short stories that sold straight through their first print run for Christmas 2001, and generated a fantastic publicity campaign.Anyone who has seen Andrew on television knows that he is a born storyteller. And the stories in Sprung Again! are the kind that parents and grandparents long for, and the kids themselves love: stories of adventure, comedy and mischief from an almost legendary Australia, a place that is often not reported in the daily news. But what immediately strikes readers is that these stories are real . They re about football, fishing, camping, holidays, school gangs, growing up and dealing with the whole messy business of boyfriends and girlfriends, being part of the group or a nerd, so they will be eagerly read by both boys and girls.The stories are pacy and cheeky enough to appeal to the kids who love Andy Griffiths, but their resolution often involves little ethical issues that give them a strong appeal to adults.

Ballygullion, Doyle, Lynn
20 Doyle, Lynn Ballygullion
Ireland Blackstaff Press 1976 0856401099 / 9780856401091 Glossy Soft Cover Good 12mo 
110 pages. This collection originally published in Dublin, Maunsel, 1908. This new edition will introduce one of Irelandís best-loved books to a new generation of readers. Set in and around a small country town, the book is in the form of stories told about his friends and neighbours by Pat Murphy, one of the local characters. To give more than the merest glimpse of any of the tales would be to spoil the book - but just wait till you read the saga of the Ballygullion Creamery Society Limited; or about the repercussions when wee Mr Anthony, the worst shot in Ireland, killed a rare and valuable pet; or what happened when Michaelís mechanical leg went wrong in church; or the awful fate of the man who picked winning horses by eating special cheese. These are stories with a twinkle in their eye - and those who remember Leslie A Montgomery, their author, all say that as a person he was just like his books. His pen-name is typical of his sense of fun: he was in fact a County Down bank manager and hit upon the pseudonym for his writing career when he was in a grocerís shop one day and saw a label marked ĎLinseed Oilí. It is said that in his job at the bank he met all sorts of people with all sorts of problems, and that some of the stories his clients told him provided him with the raw material for his delightful tales. It is also said that at one stage he started to train as a reporter and that he practised his shorthand by taking down the talk around the fireside. As a result his ear for dialect was extremely accurate, and this gives his stories their wonderful richness and vitality and their great good humour. This is a book that has been a classic since the day it was first published in 1908. Ballygullion, readers new and old will agree, is timeless in its appeal.
