Short of Love


Short of Love is a satirical fiction novel telling of Tom’s loves and career from school, university, oilfield engineering to Chief Executive Officer of an international oil company. He falls for Vicki in an agonising love story when he is studying hard and tries to put her off until later, like in a commodity short. They are brought together in an African country and oppose famine and exploitation. It is a fast-moving page-turning love story from the Beatles era to recent times.

Let’s have petrol of our own.

Exploration drilling for oil offshore in the Great Australian Bight has been opposed by activists. Australia imports 80% of its crude oil from SE Asia (49%), Africa (24%), Middle East (17%) and others (10%). Import of oil from developing countries depletes their resources and can destabilise government and development. The fiction novel $hort of Love by Martin Knox illustrates horrific ethical dilemmas of importing oil from a developing country suffering famine. After you read this story, you are likely to reduce your petrol consumption or alternatively want drilling in The Bight.
