About Paul Morrison

Being a historian and museologist since the late sixties, he became specialized in warship and Marine Corps history and development, helping to organize, display and preserve naval history for about four decades, but parallel studies and interests led him to archaeological research of great civilizations of different eras. He did part time writing for more than thirty years and his books cover a wide range of subjects from historical to science fiction, ghost and detective stories and many other genres. The decision to write The Giza Trilogy demanded a great amount of research and time and he finally retired from his work in the shipping industry and the museum to dedicate to write full time.
He revised and republished his series of Collected Stories, wrote and published his first trilogy, and a series called Cooking with the Pharaohs. He opened Kemetpharaonics Publishing House and he also decided to invest in the e-book market publishing all his books in e-book format.
The Sand God – A Novel of Ancient Egypt and The Time Traveller Sequel to The Time Machine by H. G. Wells both published in 2013 right after the trilogy.
Now he is revising the companion book of The Giza Trilogy – Eternal Egypt and closing the first book of the Ancient Americas Series – Bonampak
His interest in comic book art led him to launch the ozecomics magazine and site, and his love for art resulted in the launching of the @rtdimension magazine and site not for fun or as a hobby, but as a genuine activity that fulfils his necessity to learn and share knowledge.

Review on the Collected Australian Stories
Setting Place: Australia
Setting Time: Different points in time
Story Format: Short Stories
The Review
The book covers history, values, events and the everyday lyrical universe of this huge melting pot that composes the Australian vivid patchwork culture. The impressive sense of humour and the free and intense way of dealing with reality in scenarios one may find completely foreign or entirely familiar is not a formula, but just the description filled with the most interesting characters.
Just like the beauty of this wild and vast continent, the places, names and the situations of the short story collection will capture the heart and the eye of the reader. The diversity in these stories allows one to learn about so many interesting aspects that otherwise would be lost. The nice storytelling also teaches respect for one of the most ancient cultures of the world.
