The Old Lie by Claire G. Coleman
"Highly recommended for a deeply uncomfortable but brilliant, essential and enlightening Noongar perspective on history, the future, war, Home, space wars, science fiction, space lesbians, etcetera"
The Old Lie by Claire G. Coleman
"Once again Coleman delivers. A harrowing science-fiction tale inspired by historic events, many of which are often glossed over—or not mentioned at all.

What I especially love about Coleman's style is that she starts readers off in a place we think we" Read more of this review »

“You think you are smarter than us, you think your brains are bigger, you think we can't learn. We know more than you, we have stories and songs, we have art and culture. What do you have? You have guns and fury and hate. The war has so far been about guns and death. When you think we are defeated, the war will change.

The next war will be about resilience and survival, culture and art. When that war begins you will discover you are not well armed. You have no art, your stories have no power.”
Claire G. Coleman, Terra Nullius

“What souls they have, we will save. Whatever it is they use for brains we will educate it -' she smiled the self-satisfied smile the other sisters most likely hated though they should be scared to say it, '- whether they like it or not.”
Claire G. Coleman, Terra Nullius
