First Release-Selected Tales of Price Warung

  • by

Bonfire Books is pleased to announce our first release: Selected Tales of Price Warung, featuring eleven of Price Warung’s best stories from the 1890s, ranging from brutal tales of convict and overseer, to laconic yarns of early steamboat traffic on the Murray River, and the novella, “Secret Society of the Ring”, set on Norfolk Island, the darkest corner of colonial Australia. Meticulously researched and told in a fast-paced sensational style, Warung’s fiction represents the cream of colonial Australian writing on the convict era. This deluxe edition includes a new introduction that contextualises Warung’s place in Australian letters and thirteen original illustrations. Now available in paperback from Amazon US and Amazon Australia.
