As we lead up to the release of my next Fight Card novella, The Iron Fists of Ned Kelly, I thought I’d share some of the wide array of books already released about Ned, covering nearly every aspect of his life. Most of these images have been sourced from eBay (my thanks to those who photographed and uploaded the images).

Here’s another version of the same book from my collection, but with a tie in cover, from the 1970 Ned Kelly movie featuring Mick Jagger.

Last Stand

Here’s the back caver blurb:

The thrilling story of Australia’s most daring Bushranger

Ned Kelly has become part of Australian mythology as well as being something of a national hero. But was he a brave man or was he in fact a coward? And was he a wronged man or just a bad one?

This enthralling story of Ned Kelly’s amazing exploits maintains that he was indeed as legend has made him out to be – and he was a man wronged beyond all endurance.

Clunes

Once again from my bookshelf, to confuse you all (it confused me), this is the same book once again (a later printing, 1980 – published by Angus & Robertson), but as you can see the title has been changed.

Lonigan’s Widow – Waylon Jennings

Uploaded by Waylon lives forever

Waylon sings about Australia’s most notorious outlaw highwayman Ned Kelly.& his Gang – Song name Lonigan’s Widow – Kelly was born in Victoria Australia to an Irish convict father, and as a young man he clashed with the Victoria Police. Following an incident at his home in 1878, police parties searched for him in the bush. After he and his colleagues killed three policemen, the colonial government proclaimed Kelly and his gang wanted outlaws. A final violent confrontation with police took place at Glenrowan on 28 June 1880. Kelly, dressed in home-made plate metal armour and a helmet, was captured and sent to gaol. He was convicted of three counts of wilful murder and hanged at Old Melbourne Gaol in November 1880. His daring and notoriety made him an iconic figure in Australian history, folklore, literature, art and film.
