Fusing the Medium and the Message

Welcome to the writing of Drew Turney, showcasing recent work I've done for publications and institutions throughout Australia and the world. Select a link from the random sample below that interests you or suits your publication, or use the menu to browse by category or sub-category. If the short excerpt sounds good, click the title to read on.

How can this site help you? By showing you my abilities in researching and writing stories that are engaging and easy to understand, skills over a dozen publications call on regularly.

My parallel career in design and computers is the basis for my technology writing. I'm putting my love of movies and books to practical use in film and book reviews and am talking to the personalities in publishing and filmmaking as well as reporting on the art and business of both crafts. I'm also writing general features on everything from celebrities and business to ideas and culture.

I've written over 15 novels, dozens of short stories, poetry, a journal now in its 22nd year and countless other pieces of random creative thought. If you're curious about any of my imaginative, creative or fiction writing, contact me.

July 1st, 2008

They’re not new. Ebooks have been around in one form or another since the dotcom revolution almost ten years behind us. Bookseller and Publisher reported on the field back in 2004 but didn’t have much hope to give other than to promise ebooks were coming.
