'Journey to Horseshoe Bend was first published in 1969 and has been out of print for almost forty years. An Australian literary classic, it was written by TGH (Ted) Strehlow, author of the monumental Songs of Central Australia. It describes the final days of his father, Pastor Carl Strehlow, head of the Lutheran mission at Hermannsburg, as they travel, with Aboriginal companions, in extreme heat, along the dry riverbed of the Finke River, to the nearest railhead in search of medical assistance. They never reach help: the journey ends at Horseshoe Bend, with Pastor Strehlow’s death.

'Ted Strehlow grew up with Aborigines on the mission, and his knowledge of their customs and stories was unique. The book combines this knowledge, with a detailed awareness of the landscape and its sacred places, the battles that have been fought there, the lonely outposts of white settlement, and of the Biblical resonances of their own journey through this desert setting. ' (Publication summary, 2015 edition)

y separately published work icon Landscape with Landscape Gerald Murnane , Carlton : Norstrilia Press , 1985 Z427426 1985 selected work short story 'Murnane's innovative fictional techniques in Landscape with Landscape have inspired debates regarding whether the text is a novel or a collection of stories. The cover of the Penguin edition uses the terms "stories" and "fiction," but does not label the text either a novel or a collection of short stories [...] In the last section of the work, 'Landscape with Artist,' Murnane's narrator directly addresses the issue, stating, "I had considered again one of the problems that had kept me from showing my manuscripts to a publisher. I tried to decide whether they were a collection of short stories or whether I could combine them and unify them to make them a single novel ... [I] told myself that ... I would ... devise a new form of prose fiction - neither short story nor novel."' (Nathanael O'Reilly Exploring Suburbia p.217) Artarmon : Giramondo Publishing , 2016
