    y The Little Ghosts Ethel Anderson , Sydney : Angus and Robertson , 1959 Z307914 1959 selected work short story prose 'This collection of Ethel Anderson's Indian stories calls back to life a world that has passed away. Against the richly coloured background of Indian life, ranging in time from the sixteenth century to the last days of British rule, rajahs and camel-drivers, white nabobs and exquisite princesses, gipsies [sic], and English gentlewomen play out their comedies and tragedies. There are scenes so strange and bizarre that they would be incredible of their vividness did not carry its own conviction, and others that live in the memory by their intense and haunting beauty; there are tales of cruelty and passion and of charming light-heartedness. The brilliance of Ethel Anderson's style, with its distinctive blending of wit and poetry, makes her the perfect chronicler of this fascinating world.'

A Raj Connection : Anglo-Indian Fiction in Australia Ralph Crane , 2009 single work criticism

Glimpses of India -- A Military Dekko Susan Cowan , 2006 single work criticism
— Appears in: Explorations in Australian Literature 2006; (p. 42-50)
Susan Cowan addresses the work of three Australian writers 'who converged on India where they lived and wrote long before the hippy trial of the 70s'. Cowan chooses to focus on the 'military angle' due to her 'personal exposure to the military environment'.
The Anglo-Indian (Raj) Diaspora in Australasia Ralph J. Crane , 2005 single work criticism
— Appears in: Diaspora : The Australasian Experience 2005; (p. 177-187)
The term 'Anglo-Indian (Raj)' is used to identify the white colonial population of India rather than the 'mixed-race' community to whom the term is now most usually applied. Crane describes how links between Australia and India were already established by the early nineteenth century. He then goes on to compare two pieces of 'mutiny literature' - the short story 'Mrs James Greene', from Ethel Anderson's Indian Tales (1948), and Sir Gilbert Leigh or Pages from the History of an Eventful Life, a little known novel by New Zealand writer W. L. Rees.
