Whizz For Atomms
Williams, Geoffrey
Max Parrish, London UK 1956 
 Hardcover Less than 500g to post, 104pp with Searle's characterful lineart throughout. dj has signs of St Trinians to top edge. A story featuring the trials and tribulations of Nigel Molesworth at St Custards school. Using his own brand of outrageous spelling, it includes his advice on how to cope with "bulies, snekes, grown-ups and other chizzes". reviewer says >>> The third book in the 'Molesworth' sequence and everything is getting more offbeat and surreal. This book is supposedly a guide to life in the coming atomic age, but in fact it's a set of bizarre almost-random musings with a strong anti-authoritarian slant. The text is brilliant quasi-stream-of-consciousness stuff and the illustrations are technically brilliant and thematically perfect. Hilarious!  Very Good/Fair

The Chaser,
ISBN: 1921520809
Text Publishing, Melbourne, 2009. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. Illustrator: photographs. First Edition. Despite the demands of successful ventures in stage, screen and their own richly rewarding fantasy lives, the Chaser team have found time to put together a new Annual. As always, it will cause controversy. Critics will certainly wonder how grown men can continue to churn out offensive undergraduate claptrap at their age. But, as millions have discovered over the years, no one can really understand current events, politics, popular culture or indeed anything else without a Chaser Annual at hand to help them appreciate its inherent stupidity. The Chaser Annual is not just a good laugh and an essential aid to informed discourse. It's a fantastic way to pass the time during a difficult bowel movement, and makes a perfect gift for someone you don't know. The book is without damage. It still has its hymen, and the pictures of Kevin Rudd have not been defaced. Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall. [4], 108 pages. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Illustrator: photographs.

Farmers Bushrangers Businessman
Hall, B.,
Currawong Publishing Co. Pty. Ltd, Sydney, 1947. First Edition
 Hardcover (Original Cloth) Hardcover (Original Cloth). Good Condition/Poor Condition. First Edition. 300 g; 158 pages, illustrated dustjacket. The edges of the text block are slightly darkened with age, and there is a slant on the spine front board over rear. The dustjacket has several longish tears, and rubbing and chipping. Now protected. Mr E. Kellie showed his skill as a modern bushranger in "I Can Get It for You Tax-Free!" But in this new book, Mr B. Hall shows that Mr E. Kellie is comparatively a novice. In brilliant fashion he simplifies much of the taxation labyrinth, clarifying such subjects as rebates for wives, parents and medical and dental expenses; The Provisional Tax; explains how to sell the goodwill of a business; how to reduce taxation by improving the farm, by putting relatives on the payroll, by increasing Directors' remuneration, and elucidate points of the double taxation agreement between Australia and the United Kingdom. Here, too, is the pertinent approach spritely satire and humour which made "I can get it for you tax-free!" A bestseller. Size: 12mo (Small Hardcover). Please refer to accompanying picture (s).

Klapish, Simon,

Sid Harta Publishers, Hartwell, 2011. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. First Edition. This book contains sex, violence, nudity and adult themes. Not to mention numerous jokes about bodily functions and rotting rubbish. Dave runs the biggest rubbish dump in the state. Rubbish and money are all he cares about, although he does have a growing desire for the local pig farmer's daughter. But when Dave goes off to Paris on a government sponsored fact-finding tour, he has no idea how his life will change. The head of the Paris dump offers to pay Dave to take some 'harmless' packages off his hands from a French Pacific island. Easy money and not much work, Dave thinks. That is until some Arab terrorists become interested in those packages, and the Israeli secret service becomes interested in the terrorists. From then on things become decidedly dodgy. An action comedy that romps through crazy business schemes, lust, and the odd scientific breakthrough to steamroll its way to a climax amongst the revolting, rotten and reviled rubbish of the dump! The book was published as a fund raiser for Rotary. Size: Mid Sized Paperback ( 7¾" - 9¾" tall ). 264 pages. A very clean secondhand copy, with no damage to report. .

Sometimes childish, sometimes rude, always clever and always very, very funny this book has delighted most, and outraged a few, Tolkien fans in the US for nearly 30 years. Pulling in references to popular culture and fantasy literature as a whole this is a killingly effective parody of Lord of the Rings. From the dreary Goddamn (Gollum), to the feckless Arrowroot (Aragorn), the bungling Goodgulf (Gandalf) to the timid, meanminded boggies Frito (Frodo) and Dildo (Bilbo) no character is safe. Fleeing the Nozdrul, bored by acid-casualty Tim Benzedrine and harrassed throughout by the minions of Sorhed the fellowship move through a Middle Earth like no other. Short, sharp and very much to the point even Tolkien would be hard-pressed to surpress a giggle at Bored of the Rings. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams.

Your book when ordered will be securely packed and promptly dispatched by Great Southern Books. Where do we come from? Who created us? Why are we here? These are questions that have sporadically interested people since the dawn of time, but whose answers have continually eluded us. Now in their new book, Jon Stewart and "The Daily Show" writing staff (who include the team behind "The Onion") tackle them and many more with their trademark wit, irreverence and intelligence. They will take us on an intellectual journey through time - a quest back to the very moment of creation - that will maybe, just maybe help us figure out exactly how and why everything got so irretrievably f****ed up. From applications for genetic reconstitution by aliens to the meanings of anatomy, gender or nourishment, every aspect of life on this planet is reexplored, reexamined and made newly hilarious in this book.
