Volkun (wolfcreed) I've been on a nostalgic kick (and satisyfing my desire to re-discover old favourites I had forgotten). Can anybody name Aussie authors who became popular, or even reached cult status, during the 80s and 90s?

Examples are:

Paul Jennings
Morris Gleitzman
Jackie French
Colin Thiele
Elizabeth Honey

Niche science fiction/ speculative fiction. Probably not hugely well known but won a few awards.
