Although Wrightson has not written a sequel to The Nargun and the Stars, readers interested in her theme of "ownership" would enjoy A Racecourse for Andy (also published as I Own the Racecourse!) which treats the same idea.

Readers interested in Wrightson's use of Aboriginal myth should also read The Crooked Snake, The Bunyip Hole, An Older Kind of Magic, A Little Fear, and her trilogy for older readers, The Ice is Coming, The Dark Bright Water, and Journey Behind the Wind (also published as Behind the Wind). She treats the theme of preservation of the environment forcefully in An Older Kind of Magic. The perspective of the "other" on human nature and behavior is amusingly presented in Down to Earth, in which the reader views the modern city of Sydney through the alien eyes of a visitor from outer space.
