I think this year I have read a meagre 4 books from this part of the world - a couple of Luke Preston titles, one from Andrew Nette and one from Michael Robotham. One of these was set in London anyway, so hardly qualified as an Australian novel in that respect.
What actually qualifies as an Australian book anyway? Author place of birth, author residency or the location of the book where the action takes place? On the basis of at least one facet of the above ticking a box, I should be able to meet this target.
Roll on 2014 and some Disher, Corris, Barrett, Temple, Whish-Wilson, Paul Thomas and Shane Maloney to mention a few!
