Gift of $10,000 worth of Hesperian titles to the WA prison system.

We have given some 15 copies each of 24 titles that are still current books but of which we are overstocked. We need the space. Hopefully some of the prisoners will appreciate good books as a relief from the mind rotting TV. We even gave an extra set for the staff so they do not have to pinch the prisoner’s copies.

Free books this month.

For any retail purchase you may have one free book from this month’s list.

That is you can have a free book for each book you buy. The downside is that you pay the postage.

This month’s free books :- Misfortunes of Phoebe, Golden Land of Silence, All Australians now, Borneo Surgeon, The Thousand Hours, The Growing Up, Thermo-electrical Cooking.

Book details on our booklist.


Our author Phil Bianchi has received an OAM in the Australia Day Honours List for his work on community history. Phil is a prolific compiler of bush history including on the woodlines and the Canning Stock Route. His new masterpiece on the Woodlines is out now.

Coming soon.


"Ben O'Dowd - Hero of Kapyong"


It is important that we get support for our books from our readers. Hesperian does not get taxpayer funding.

Many millions of dollars have been mis-spent on unreadable novels and plainly irrelevant and obnoxious propaganda.

There is no other publisher like us in Australia concentrating on REAL Australian history and people.

Hesperian books will stand the test of time.

But if we do not get buyer support we may not be around too long after our forthcoming 50 years anniversary.
