1989 - The Power of One

Bryce's first published novel

The William Heinemann Australia first edition was published in 1989, very likely February 27, 1989; and most probably before the London first edition. Bryce lived in Australia, so it makes sense that his novel would be first offered for sale in Australia

William Heinemann also published an edition in London, which likely first appeared for sale March 20, 1989

Little, Brown and Company published an edition in Canada, and this edition first appeared for sale in 1989

Random House published an edition in the United States, and this edition first appeared for sale June 1989

A Young Readers' Edition was published in 1999
