The New Zealand Railways Magazine, Volume 11, Issue 6 (September 1, 1936)

“Shibli” Listens In

“Shibli” Listens In.

Another book from the pen of Mr. C. A. L. Treadwell is due for publication shortly. It is a story of the New Zealand Infantry in the Great War and is, I believe, largely autobiographical.

Will Lawson, whose stirring novel “When Cobb & Co. Was King,” was reviewed in our last issue, has gone to West Australia for another job of book-writing.

“The Marriage of Nicholas Cotter,” Nelle Scanlan's latest novel, is to be published in London this month.

The 1937 Edition of the Australian Authors’ and Artists’ Handbook will be published about the end of the year.

The first edition of Robin Hyde's much-discussed book, “Passport to Hell,” is already a collector's item. Very few copies of this edition came to New Zealand. The book is in its fourth edition.

“Why on earth did they hold a New Zealand Authors’ Week?” remarked a New Zealand publisher to me the other day, pointing to a huge collection of Ms. piled on his table. “Novels, biographies and short story collections are simply pouring in from all parts of the country.”

Mr. F. J. Dawson Sen. has retired from the managing editorship of “The N.Z. Sporting and Dramatic Review” on account of ill-health. Mr. Stack Hickey has now taken control and has reduced the price of the paper to threepence.

The first number of “Flame,” the new Australian magazine of fiction, is just to hand. The ideals of the magazine are of the best—to publish and pay for short stories from Australian and New Zealand writers. No overseas syndicated work will be used. The editor of the magazine, Mr. L. L. Woolacott (one time editor of “The Triad”) is a capable writer and editor, well-known on both sides of the Tasman. The address of the enterprise is 160 Castlereagh Street, Sydney.
