de Brune, Aiden: Meet Mary Cronig, and other stories (2019); v.1; 10 Oct 2010

I've related the saga of Aiden de Brune,an entirely forgotten Australian 1930s author of action and crime serials, elsewhere in the Forum. In 2017, in a three-way collaboration, I extracted all of his fiction from Australian newspapers, and Roy Glashan's Library published them as ebooks, while Project Gutenberg Australia's Colin Choat did real detective work ferreting out the true story of the man behind the alias "de Brune". Roy Glashan published this collection in a somewhat different format.

In addition to nearly a score of novels, all but one published as newspaper serials in Australia, Aiden de Brune wrote a great deal of newspaper journalism, and some short fiction. These stories were published from 1922 to 1933 in various newspapers.

The first five appeared in Smith's Weekly in 1928, and feature Mary Cronig, a poor but enterprising young girl doing the best she can in Sydney's hard times.

I created the cover using a detail from an advertisement in a dress-making pattern book from the 1920s.
