I feel awkward about my old e-books as they're from a less mature me. But here they are for the record.
Three Rabbits Alibi: A True Story of Murder, Madness & the News in Colonial Melbourne – my 2015 e-book.
Deaths at Josephine's Gasworks Hotel – my 2013 e-book plus background on Brompton's Gasworks Hotel and its early publicans.
