About the Book

The Bitter Harvest combining author's literary output since 2010 in three distinct parts touches on running sores of our society.

Two short Australiana novels form PART ONE: 'The Wombat Flats Cotton Farm', and 'The Fortune Seekers' guide the reader to parts of the Outback tourists are not likely see; home to a breed of rugged colourful individuals ready to defend their turf from enchroaching Big Money and

punishing weather by all means at hand..

PART TWO, the poetry section beginns with 'The American Trilogy'' daring to ask taboo questions. Whereto did the trillions vanish in the GFC smoke? Remaining poems are reflections from the heart and soul of a common pilgrim.

PART THREE in 'Borneo Desert' presents a dark prediction for the near planet's future, as seen through the eyes of a scientist cum adventurer. who had done his homework. In the final analysis we can only expect to reap what we sow-thence the Bitter Harvest.

The Wombat Flats Cotton Farm, written in 2011 deals with the aftermath of the devastating floods in Queensland Australia. The novel joins second edition up-dates of both: The Borneo Desert and The Fortune Seekers. The latest book is in fact collected Works of the writer’s output since 2009, combined under the title: ‘THE BITTER HARVEST’.
