The Guardian reports on the latest stamps from Down Under. The set honors Aussie authors, including Peter (True History of the Kelly Gang) Carey, Thomas (Schindler's List) Keneally and Colleen (The Thorn Birds) McCullough
I'm assuming most of the authors are pleased, but at least one--Bryce (The Power of One) Courtenay--is not impressed. He told The Guardian, "Stamps aren't what they used to be. It was the king's head on stamps when I was young. Now they just put old sh*tbags on them."
Details are here. (All praise to Shelf Awareness for the catch.)--David E
