Hi Psyber, just looking around and am back here again, just thought I’d let you know I have recently added some pics and bits to my/dad’s site (companion site to the broadband one). Hope life is sweet, cheers SP
Well I just took out after many years my UQPress paperback “The Barbarians” by Mr Pinney, which I bought in 1991. I have read it at least 3 times and lent it to mates, who enjoyed it. It has the detail of an Ivor Hele painting on the cover. On an impulse, I googled Mr Pinney to find he died the year after I bought it. How sad, but on second thoughts, this man would not have been sad to have left this earthly plane because he filled his 70 years to the full.
This is a wonderful book, the only one I have by him. It is enough. Condolences to his daughter who started this thread a few years ago. I hope you read this and understand that your father bought much joy to many through his writing. And, he was there in Salamau etc.
