Paul Morrison is a historian and a museologist who was born in Tasmania, Australia in 1953. He had to wait for a long time till he could dedicate entirely to his writing career. Sharing his time between his work in Sydney and a private Museum he co-founded with his brother, he kept writing and researching for the series and trilogies he is now free to produce.
After publishing his stories in The Quarterly Reader and also editing the museum newsletter, the Lower Deck he was invited to compile and write the History of HMS Consort, a post-World War II destroyer, entitled Loyal and Steadfast. While researching and acquiring artifacts for the museum Paul kept producing his collected series which he now re-publishes in an e-book format.
In 2009, Paul finally retired from his full time work in Sydney and got a Leave from the Museum in order to move to Brazil to marry his girlfriend. Being retired, he could also start his research trips around the world. His first trilogy came after three long years and is a historical fiction work that tells the epic saga of the Giza Plateau, the construction of the pyramids and the life of the Great Pharaohs of the IV Dynasty.
After finishing his trilogy he came back to Australia and published the first book, The Pharaoh which is about the life and times of Pharaoh Khufu. The first printed book of the trilogy is available at his site and also at the book signings also announced at the site.
The present project involves the launching of the already printed books in the e-book format and at the moment Paul is developing his last book on the Giza Plateau, a companion book to the trilogy he finished writing in 2012. Parallel to these developments Paul is committed to the Series called the Pacific Navigators which is well developed and will be soon released. He is also currently working on the America Series as well as his science fiction series to be released in the next few years. Paul is a prolific writer who writes more than three thousand words a day and in his in-house publishing company works to prepare his books and distribute them.
The Sand God and The Time Traveller are also being launched in e-book format and according to Paul these books were developed while he was working to publish the first book of his Giza Trilogy. They were both written in Australia where Paul is now living with his wife.

Review on the Collected Other Stories
Setting Place: Different Parts of the Earth and other worlds
Setting Time: An extensive timeline
Story Format: Short Stories and Novellas
The book covers fictional events developed in the universe of different cultures, different beings inhabiting other worlds such as the one in The Oracle of Pentos 7. The intriguing thought of native cultures portrayed by the legends of the Pacific islands such as in Dolphin Joe and The Eye of the God can be mysterious and unexpected. One can also be a witness to the ruthless Spanish Conquest of the Aztecs, as well as the passion of the author for maritime stories such as in The Nelson Touch, The Sea Captain and others. It was fine to visit memories of Ancient Greece in Lydia's Song, and still thinking about the past in The Eye of Ra, some scary moments with Night Calls or the aboriginal Gulluph Man.
The adventure is open to the reader who dares to chase the fun in these pages. I must say I deeply enjoyed. It surpassed the expectations I had in opening the pages of the book, with some knowledge of the Author's way of penning his stories. The ideal size of the stories and the variety found is another aspect to enjoy and explore. The title does not do justice to this collection that is meant to entertain and scare the curious reader, as well as the searcher of new worlds in which to flirt with adventure.
