A novel set in a factual opal place in far away Australia? I HAD to read it, and easily became a character in Anskar's adventures (good story-telling allows it). You see, I live at Wallangulla (an historical name) on the edge of the Outback and my passion is opal mining history. Anskar's is a real-life story according to my historical knowledge of this place 45 years ago. And the whimsical element woven throughout does finally make sense. Yes, I was with Anskar in search of that radiant opal. But, are the stories more colorful than the opals we seek? This book is a must for opalholics

The Curse of the Radiant Opal is a book that transports you to the Outback of Australia and in a very effective way it involves the reader in the day-to-day activities of its main character Anskar Thorston. There are villains and heroes, good friends and enemies. There is intrigue perpetrated by the lead character's enemies and by the lead character himself. The environment depicted here is very exotic, I think it would be exotic even to Australians, because this is so far removed from ordinary life in Australia. This book is well worth your time.
