About Cuan

Having worked most of my life as a Tourism Manager, thoroughly explored Southern Africa, and visited a few dozen other countries beside (with many more to go), I have now turned my hand to writing historical novels. BULALA is the first, and the sequel is now well underway. Written from a "Boer" perspective (although I am primarily an English-speaking South African) the narrative takes the reader... More

Greeting Cuan - at the back of the book there is list of material that you recommend to read. One tag has got my attention is the following "Uncovering the Mysteries of Your Hidden Inheritance". I did a search and noticed that is it only available via mail from the US. Is there not a local distribut... more

Nigel Soden, thank you for your comments. Much appreciated. I too, have researched the past machinations of my own people, and found much to criticize, and much to commend. I do not buy the populist line, and have little time for the liberalist lies that have distorted our history. A classis example... more

History is always re-written by the victors to exemplify there righeousnes for the deeds committed. There are but view historical novels that pull the thin veneer of lies to expose the truth. Not been a birthed in South African yet having lived here since the age of 11 I conceder this to be my home.... more

Hello again, James Miller. Once again, you are being presumptuous, and are now even bordering on libelous, in your efforts to attribute ulterior motives, and are continuing in your attempts to paste on labels, in a singularly cavalier fashion. Nowhere are the Protocols quoted in my work. It is simpl... more

Mr Elgin, I think you are missing my point, which perhaps I did not make clear enough.
I have now finished reading the book, but found little to alter my viewpoint.
I do not contest the veracity of your claims, as I am not sufficiently informed about them. I stated that your writings are s... more

James Miller, thank you for your comment on "Bulala" and you are of course, entitled to your opinion. However, I would suggest you finish reading the book, before commenting much further on the narrative. For starters, I am a Semite myself, and have been equally scathing about my cousins the English... more

I am in the process of reading Bulala, and so far I find it very readable, and a refreshing change from all the usual PC drivel that is dished up. However, unfortunately it appears that you have an axe to grind. Your snide comments about Jews are uncalled for, and irrelevant in the context. You seem... more

Hi Debbie

Yes, "Bulala" is a historically accurate story of South Africa, in novel form. No holy cows! We have now had a local, more compact & affordable edition printed, which will shortly be on retail bookshelves. Signed copies are available direct from me.

Will send you a ... more

Is this book historical fiction? If it is I would love a copy for the museum library.
