His first book, The Pocketbook of Aussie Patriotism, a compact guide to Australian history, was published by Black Inc books in January 2007. Brendan's debut novel, Sold, a black comedy set in the Melbourne real estate industry, was published in April 2009 by Sleepers Publishing.

Gullifer produced and hosted two podcasts, The Naked Novelist, for fiction writers, and The Chill Factory, featuring new releases in jazz, ambient, new age and world music.

He has also made appearances as Scotch College as part of their Literature Festival.
