    'The Anthology of Colonial Australian Romance Fiction collects captivating stories of love and passion, longing and regret. In these tales women arriving in the New World make decisions about relationships and marriage, social conventions, finances and career-and even the future of the nation itself. The "slim and graceful" Australian girl becomes a new character type: independent, self-possessed and full of promise. These stories also show women gaining experience about the world, and the men, around them. They are put to the test by a new life and a new place. And not every relationship works out well.

    The best of colonial Australian romance fiction is collected in this anthology, from writers such as Ada Cambridge, Rosa Praed, Francis Adams, Henry Lawson, Mura Leigh and many others.' (From the publisher's website.)

Between Living and Dying : The Ground of Lawson's Art Harry Payne Heseltine , 1982 single work criticism
— Appears in: Overland , July no. 88 1982; (p. 19-26) The Uncertain Self : Essays in Australian Literature and Criticism 1986; (p. 42-55)
Heseltine employs a musical metaphor to show that the integrity of Lawson's great tales of the 1890s "resides in his determination to hold the balance between the spiritual wasteland he perceived in his own and other lives and the tantalising but illusory promise of rebirth he could not help but entertain".
