Today, I’d like to welcome TD McKinnon to the hot seat as my guest on the Thursday Throng. TD is a Scot now living in Tasmania and is the author of Terra Nullius; he has kindly offered a copy of the eBook version of Terra Nullius to one lucky commenter – all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is leave a comment at the end of this post.
When TD first got in touch he told me a little about the history of Terra Nullius and it had me hooked even before I’d read the book; this is what he said:
“Terra Nullius is a historical fiction about a period in history that has been quite deliberately covered up. When I first moved to Tasmania I began to hear fragments of stories relating to the 19th century settlement of the island; stories hinting at the reasons why you don’t see any black faces, anywhere, in a land that was inhabited for forty or perhaps even fifty thousand years prior to the Colonials. Here was a story crying out to be told.”
