An Unlikely Leader: the life and times of Captain John Hunter was launched last night at the Royal Australian Historical Society. The author, Robert Barnes, gave a short talk on "The difficulties of governing New South Wales". John Hunter captained the HMS Sirius in the First Fleet, and later returned to England. After Governor Phillip's departure, there was a period of over 2 1/2 years before Hunter arrived as the second Governor. This allowed the NSW Corps to establish themselves as the powerbrokers of the colony. Barnes' argument was that very few people could have made progress against such entrenchment, Hunter's own qualities notwithstanding.


Through the Clock's Workings is one of the most interesting projects we've been involved with since restarting SUP in 2004. An initiative supported by the Australia Council through the Story of the Future project and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation, RemixMyLit commissioned 8 original short stories from Australian authors and encouraged other writers to "remix" their own versions.
