      The year ended with a book that, I think, everybody should read, which is the debut novel Terra Nullius by a striking new Australian Aboriginal author in Claire G. Coleman. Of course, Terra Nullius was the legal fiction and declaration used to justify the invasion of Australia by British imperialism, with the term meaning ‘Nobody’s Land. Long before the word “genocide” was coined, the British invasion of Australia had annihilated approximately nine-tenths of the continent's original population of Aborigines. The creation of white Australia depended upon the legal fiction of “terra nullius”—no man's land—the claim that Aboriginal lands were inhabited by people who would soon die out and who could be helped /5(3).

    Download Terra nullius means 'empty land'. It is the title of the first story in this collection, which is related by Hugh Foulkes, bullock driver to Captain Charles Sturt, as the men of the expedition wait at Depot Glen for Sturt's return from his final push in search of the mythical inland sea. Terra Nullius has won the Norma K Hemming Award. Thanks to the administrators and judges of the award. Exciting news: Terra Nullius has been Shortlisted for the Stella Prize. Wow!: Terra Nullius has been shortlisted for Best Sci-Fi Novel in the Aurealis Awards.
