Adam Roberts reports for the Guardian:
James Bradley’s elegantly bleak vision of a climate-change future, ''Clade'' (e-penguin), [only released in print in Australia and not in any markets overseas] made a bigger splash in its native Australia than [over here in the UK or the USA], but deserves a wide readership: it’s urgent, powerful stuff.
THEREFORE: readers of this blog: write an email to Bradley's small-minded publisher in Australia and tell them to release the book with their affiliates in the USA and the UK and remind them that Australian novelists are part of the global community now and deserve publication overseas as well, at least in English-speaking markets to start with. Dumb move, Penguin Random House Australia! Australia is part of the world. Wake up. Your writers deserve better!
SEE? it's only available from the Australian publisher as an e-book. How narrow-minded and provincial can Australian publishers be?
NOTE: when major novels are published in the USA or the UK, they are also released with cooperating publishers or affilitates in other English speaking countries. WHY is AUSTRALIA acting to provoncial and close-minded in regards to an important Australian novel?
