"Let Stalk Strine" is by Afferbeck Lauder.  Can't help you on the other 

LSS is one of two books I have <blush> abstracted from public libraries.

The other one was -- ObDWJ -- "Witch's Business" aka "Wilkin's Tooth".
That one I paid for losing [the other library lost track of LSS], kept 
receipt, and when I could finally buy it, I did, and returned the book
to the library.
