NICE DAY FOR A MURDER AND OTHER STORIES. Sydney: Panda Books, 1944. Small octavo, original printed wrappers, side stapled. First edition. This appears to be the author's only collection of short fiction. Nineteen stories set in the outback of Australia about rough men and resourceful women. Miller and Macartney (1956), p. 32. Hubin (1994), p. 4. A nearly fine copy. A very nice copy of this elusive wartime paperback. (#116263).
