If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Join Sulari Gentill, author of the Rowland Sinclair series, and L.J.M. Owen, author of the Dr Pimms, Intermillennial Sleuth series, for a discussion of the graver side of historical mystery fiction, including deadly lessons unlearned and the reclamation of women’s history.
Through her Rowland Sinclair series, Sulari explores the 1930s rise of fascism in Australia and across the world. Unexpectedly, her novels have proven a disconcerting mirror of current world events.
Skeletal analysis and old fashioned sleuthing come together in L.J.’s series featuring archaeologist-librarian Dr Elizabeth Pimms. Each novel also contains the fleshed-out life of a neglected woman from history – an ancient Olmec athlete, a Mayan leader, a female Pharaoh.
Join both authors for a discussion of the serious side of historical fiction. Q&A session and signing to follow.
