Although I admire the writings of Bryce Courtenay, but don't usually read
fiction, I was very disappointed when he perpetuated the myth that if you
kill a Brown Snake its mate will come after you. I think it was in the
book/film 'Jessica' if I am not mistaken.

Oh my gosh, it's gone feral! This sounds like a case of both sloppy writing
and editing. And it's not as if the expertise is hard to find. Bryce
Courtenay, for example, went to some lengths to seek out such expertise.
Perhaps someone would like to write a review.
