'Nosebleed' by Ged Maybury

Hamish Zupanek suffers from nosebleeds - lots of them.  But that's because his finger spends a good lot of time up one or both of his nostrils investigating to see if he's been abducted by aliens.

Hamish has it into his head he's been abducted by aliens and so he's collected a lot of information about things from outer space.  Whenever he's out at garage and yard sales, he seems to hone in on all kinds of things about them; which annoys his family to no end. But his best friend, Trev, is right there with him on the whole thing - selective chicken blindness and all!   
However, it isn't until Hamish 'meets' a friend on the net that things get really interesting.  There's codes to be broken, language barriers that weren't there before, but are there now... and all of this begins to scare Hamish.

Then, his internet friend wants to meet him - in person - and he has groundbreaking news for Hamish which will blow his mind.  Will he meet him?  Or is it all just a dream caused by a massive loss of blood from too much nose-picking?

I've been given this book to read now - a month before its release onto the market - and I love it!  It's funny, very Australian, and I know where the places are in it that Hamish go to.  It's a great little book to read in a day; or a few hours at least, so escape the world for a while.  Well worth the time to get into it.  Until my next post, happy reading!   


  1. Oh, this book sounds delightful!! Do you know if it will it be available for sale in the USA?

    1. I'm not sure. I'll have to check with Ged about it... but if not, I'll let you know and nab a copy off him on the day (buy one that is :D ) and then I can post it off to you. :D

    2. Oh, thank you!! If I'm unable to purchase 'Nosebleed' here in the USA, I'd be happy to reimburse you for the cost of the book and postage to me here in the USA.

  2. Woot, woot!! I'm so excited because I received my autographed copy of 'Nosebleed' from Ged in the mail today!! I'm looking forward to reading and reviewing this book on my blog. :-)
