This is an auction for TRANSPORTED by Tim Jones.

This is the book on the right in the photograph. EXTREME WEATHER EVENTS is in a separate auction.

"A well-known poet pursues his elusive muse; a Kiwi makes himself indispensable in Oz; a revolutionary fast-food franchise revs up Russia's economy; a racing-car driver is airborne; temperate Otago exports its kiwifruit worldwide; a Frenchman called Foucault puts in the hard yards at an antipodean dairy farm - all while water laps at our feet, our homes, our lives ...With Tim Jones' stories you should expect the unexpected. This refreshing collection uses a lively mix of genres, taking readers on flights of fancy, transports of delight, and even occasional trips of nostalgia. Some of the stories are unique ways of looking at the everyday and ordinary, others take us out of this world. They are funny, moving, insightful and, above all, delightfully different."

"Tim Jones uses his considerable experience in politics and as a pacifist to craft these stories, which show great variety and twists and turns in plot and subject matter. A bit of a science buff, he mixes in some sci fi which is never outrageously intrusive or inappropriate but just seems to sit there, naturally. He certainly has style, and copies nobody - he deserves some outstanding success. Tim Jones was born in England and emigrated to Southland in 1962 and his humour is objective, funny and sometimes black."
- Trevor Reeves, in The Southern Ocean Review
