Capital Manifestations-Tales of Haunted Canberra (Pendragon Publishing & Design 2020)
JG Montgomery, seasoned international ghost researcher and author, explores all aspects of the Australian capital and surrounds, from the area’s lesser known historic graveyards to its rural fringe and even more recent developments in the Parliamentary Triangle, the seat of Australia’s government.
Summer to Summer (Pendragon Publishing 2018 Fiction/ Memoir)
Canberra in those heady, early 1980s– a city without a soul; a big country town full of politicians and fat cat public servants; a sterile manmade landscape of straight roads, roundabouts and perfectly manicured lawns; a capital city without a true identity, struggling to establish itself as a national icon and landmark within the country it governs. But in spirit, Canberra is none of these things. To the youth of the times it is a city of growth and excitement. This is their story; cars, work, booze, women, sport, mates, pubs, music parties and fights. These were great days, the days when we were young– the days from summer to summer.
