Shuriken by Vincent O'Sullivan( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Japanese Military Field Code was explicit: 'Japanese forces do not surrender to the enemy under any circumstances.' How then would the eight hundred or so prisoners who found themselves in the first Japanese prisoner-of-war camp anywhere in the world behave? They had been brought from the Soloman Islands to Featherstone in 1942. Six months later an incident occurred in which forty-nine prisoners and one New Zealand guard were killed. Vincent O'Sullivan explores the implications of this event in a play which immediately rises above mere documentation to consider what happens when people of two cultures are brought together in such extreme circumstances, and when even the best intentions of those who try to offer sympathy and understanding fail in the face of ignorance and prejudice
The eye of the queen by Phillip Mann( Book )

19 editions published between 1877 and 2001 in 4 languages and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marius Thorndyke, the legendary contact linguist, willingly came out of retirement to meet with the Pe-Ellians when they asked for him & he willingly returned to Pe-Ellia at their request. He was a veteran of contacts with alien species, but they had always been technologically inferior to Earth. The Pe-Ellians were different. Humanoid but twice the height of humans & sexless, they clearly came from a very advanced civilization: a civilization that understood the power of thought."--Goodreads
The disestablishment of paradise : a novel in five parts plus documents by Phillip Mann( Book )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Something has gone wrong on the planet of Paradise. The human settlers--farmers and scientists--are finding that their crops won't grow and their lives are becoming more and more dangerous. The indigenous plant life--never entirely safe--is changing in unpredictable ways, and the imported plantings wither and die. And so the order is given--Paradise will be abandoned. All personnel will be removed and reassigned. And all human presence on the planet will be disestablished. Not all agree with the decision. There are some who believe that Paradise has more to offer the human race. That the planet is not finished with the intruders, and that the risks of staying are outweighed by the possible rewards. And so the leader of the research team and one of the demolition workers set off on a journey across the planet. Along the way they will encounter the last of the near-mythical Dendron, the vicious Reapers and the deadly Tattersall Weeds as they embark on an adventure which will bring them closer to nature, to each other and, eventually, to Paradise."--Page 4 of cover

"It is the not too distant future. Human Pioneers, genetically modified to evolve rapidly and adapt to alien environments, have been sent to populate the universe. Then a cataclysmic event on Earth causes widespread sterility and the human race is threatened with extinction. A bold Fertility Programme is developed to retrieve the early Pioneers and their rich genetic heritage to replenish the human gene pool. Tasked to bring the last Pioneer back home are Angelo and Ariadne: adapted humans, magnificent and powerful creatures in their own right. They are 'Not quite human, but almost.' On return to a post-Catastrophe New Zealand, Angelo gradually becomes aware of his own evolving nature and the programming instilled in him. Capable of independent thought, Angelo has many questions. Is he now human? If so, is he a good man? Can he be trusted to protect the future of 'human-kind'? Can he make the ultimate sacrifice to prove his humanity? Haunted by what he has seen, Angelo decides to make one last trip to seek the help of Pioneer Rip, the strangest Pioneer of them all." (from back cover)

The dandy at dusk : taste and melancholy in the twentieth century by Phillip Mann( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Philip Mann chronicles the relationship of dandyism and the emerging cultural landscape of modernity via portraits of Regency England's Beau Brummel – the first dandy – and six twentieth-century figures: Austrian architect Adolf Loos, the Duke of Windsor, neo-Edwardian courtier Bunny Roger, writer and raconteur Quentin Crisp, French film producer Jean-Pierre Melville, and New German Cinema enfant terrible and inverted dandy Rainer Werner Fassbinder. He blends memorable anecdotes with acute analysis to explore their style, identity and influence and interweaves their stories with an entertaining history of tailoring and men's fashion. The Dandy at Dusk contextualizes the relationship between dandyism, decadence and modernism, against the background of a century punctuated by global conflict and social upheaval." --Publisher description

Three plays by Robert Lord( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For two decades, Robert Lord’s plays astonished and entertained theatre audiences with their sharp satire and flamboyant farce. Three Plays is a celebration of his life and career with comprehensive essays by editor Phillip Mann. It Isn’t Cricket is one of Lord’s earlier plays in which his talent for dialogue and complex characters shines. A small group of friends are constantly manipulating and deceiving one another, vying for the upper hand in loaded social situations. Well Hung satirises rural life in a small town when a local murder overtakes lives. Peopled with a bumbling police force, a lusty homemaker, a gentleman farmer and a leading light in the local theatre group, it moves swiftly, depicting ridiculous situations with an undercurrent of biting social commentary. The Travelling Squirrel is a romp through the fickle nature of the entertainment industry. Protagonist Bart compares his struggles as a writer to those of Roger the squirrel, a misunderstood painter. Hilarious and packed with larger-than-life characters, this play is a testament to Lord’s ability to write brilliant comedy
