Patriotically basted in the goon trough of Australian values, this book is as fundamentally Strayan as bowling your final over underarm, not asking awkward questions about what's in your meat pie, and naming a swimming pool after Harold Holt. Conveniently omitting all areas not relating to Australia, Strayapedia provides definitive alternative facts about Tony Abbott, AC/DC, Canberra, Kylie Minogue, the Hills hoist, Bob Hawke, Hey Hey It's Saturday, Ned Kelly, koalas, Akubras and Shane Warne - among many other certified dinky-di topics. If you want to pass a citizenship test, or win a trivia night hosted by Cory Bernardi, Strayapedia is as valuable as a tiny apartment in Sydney. What they said about Strayapedia* *These quotes are as factual as the rest of this book. 'Sorry, I cannot recall reading it.' Cardinal George Pell 'This is a disgusting, defamatory book which unfortunately doesn't mention me.' Rebel Wilson 'I wanted to endorse Strayapedia, but my backbench thought otherwise.'

"A witty, insightful romantic comedy, which draws on the author's experience of the comedy world, working in radio, and being immature and childless! For fans of David Nicholls, Ben Elton and Nick Hornby. Dan McIntyre isn't ready to settle down. As a stand-up comedian with a career that's taking off, it was easy to walk away from his girlfriend's ultimatum: comedy or kids. But now he's starting to feel like he's the last man standing while all his friends are switching socialising for baby wipes. Sure, his mates are still wide awake at 3am with a bottle in their hand but now it's for a very different reason. Dan reckons he spends enough time with spoiled brats in his day job wrangling a breakfast radio duo known as Bry Dynamite and Silly Sally. He can't understand why everyone's giving up their social lives for creatures who express themselves through loud, irritating noises and bodily fluids. But at least it's giving him material for a new comedy show, Man vs Child. Then Penny, the woman who broke his heart in high school, walks back into his life. She's newly single, and wants to reconnect with her old pal from French class except now she has a one-year-old

Gordy LaSure's passionate about film. He eats film, he drinks film, and sometimes he'll even watch a film. But most of all he loves talking to people about film: whether a comely student with low confidence and a father complex, a Studio 'development' exec who doesn't trust his own judgement, or the countless people Gordy LaSure's encountered in his capacity as the web moderator on an Excessive Sweating Discussion Forum. Gordy LaSure's alwaystalking about films and how they'd be a shit ton better if only people would pull their asses out of their ears and listen to Gordy LaSure. The voyage of this book can be categorised as an attempt to understand How In Hell Film Works. Why are some films bad, and some films terrible?How come just a handful of films (Titanic, Porky's, Dirty Harry) areany good at all? Gordy'll tell you How and Why, and he'll give you a slug of Wherefore on the side. And he doesn't shoot from the hip; he shoots from the gut.

"Romeo and Juliet amidst university campus politics.Sydney University is Australia's pre-eminent finishing school for politicians, and its Students' Representative Council is the nursery where generations of future leaders have cut their first dodgy preference deals and performed their first backstabbings. Comrades is the story of one student President, Eddie O'Hara, and the brutal struggle to replace him. A menagerie of campus lefties and Liberals battle for the spoils, along with one candidate who makes the peculiar decision to campaign dressed as a rooster. Principles are abandoned, loyalties forgotten and party lines crossed until the blood of all the candidates but one soaks the sandstone cloisters of Australia's oldest university. And all the while, the decades-old institution itself is under threat from some fully-grown politicians in the Federal Parliament who are determined to drain the lifeblood from political cr ches like the Sydney Uni SRC by stripping them of their funding . . . Comradesis the story of an election that's contested as fiercely as though it were for President of the United States, not Sydney University. It's also an affect

A hilarious novel from a great comedic writer, one of the founders of The Chaser's War on Everything. No DJ can mix 'Celebration' into 'Come On Eileen' quite like Paul Johnson, the king of rancid retro. But while he has the musical jumper leads to get even the most dismal party started, he can't get his own life moving. Trapped in a job he despises, a perpetual failure with the ladies and living at home with his distinctly unhelpful parents, Paul's stuck in limbo while everyone around him is limbo-dancing. While he's avoided the corporate mousetrap that's ensnared his friend Nige, Paul dreams of one day playing his own music instead of John Farnham's. But it's much easier to joke about your problems with your friends than to do something about them. A romantic comedy that's equal parts bitingly cynical and naively idealistic, Disco Boy is a story for anyone who's ever hit the Pause button on their life, and found it hard to press Play again.

Despite her best efforts (and the fact that she was once voted 'TV's most spankable personality'), Sami Lukis has always been romantically challenged. Aside from a handful of serious long-term relationships, she's been a serial dater for the better part of thirty years. It's not like she hasn't tried to find the one - she's given it a bloody good go. She's been on more blind dates than is reasonable for anyone to endure in a lifetime. She's dated guys on almost every continent. But for reasons she can't quite understand, she seems to be a dating weirdo magnet. There was the date with Kevin Costner's bodyguard (yep, the Bodyguard's bodyguard), and the delightful gentleman she later found out was an armed robber. The sleazy TV exec who loved the word 'moist'. The bloke who wanted to rent her ovum. The guy who proposed on their first date. The loser who sent her a selfie featuring a hickie - which he hadn't got from her. Oh, and that time she realised she might be dating her cousin. Now Sami's sharing her dating disasters in the hopes of connecting with anyone who's experienced the highs and lows of the always nerve-wracking, sometimes uplifting and often stomach-churning roller-coaster of romance. Romantically Challenged is an unintentionally entertaining romp through the men, the meetings and the misadventures a woman can face on her quest to find love.

It is strange enough that Odo and Eleanor have stumbled upon a sword in a dried-up river outside their village. It is even stranger that Odo is able to remove it from where it's buried. And it's REMARKABLY strange when the sword starts to talk. Odo and Eleanor have unearthed Biter, a famous fighter from earlier times. By finding Biter, Odo instantly becomes a knight -- a role he is exquisitely unsuited for. Eleanor, however, would make a PERFECT knight -- but she's not the one with the sword. Finding Biter is only the start -- boy, girl, and sword must soon go on a quest to save their kingdom from threats in both human and dragon form, in this new fantasy triumph from Garth Nix and Sean Williams.
