I think (I may be wrong) I remember him at one of the book fairs at the Holiday Inn some donkey years ago when he talked excerpts of the "Stick that Kills".

I was encouraged by his talk to write then and I did publish 'Zymur' with OUP but then publishers dried up and the rate of royalties they offered was not worth the hard yakka one put into the writing (I've done a lot of other things in life including making a coffee garden).

Writing for pleasure is one hard work with no tangible results in place until the right chord is hit).

I welcome Mr Shearston's inclusion and hope that it will lead to more publishing by PNGns or for PNGn writers to get into the Australian book market.

Can we have an account either with ANZ or BSP opened in PNG where we in PNG can contribute our liklik buai and 'lus' moni to assist to get Mr Shearston up here.

Thanks for the offer, Baka, but for the moment we'll let our PNG friends off the hook - KJ
