    Judith E.P. Johnson / between two moons

    ‘Between Two Moons is a delightful gift by Judith E.P. Johnson from Tasmania, an island far in the south. The scenes she captures with her warm-hearted and observant eyes in her daily life, and also in nature, are quite charming and agreeable. This collection will be my favourite for a long time.’ - Satoru Kanematsu, author of Hazy Moon

    Ali Cobby Eckermann / little bit long time

    Ali Cobby Eckermann / little bit long time

    ‘In little bit long time we experience a true poet’s strong and singing voice… She has a tradition of innovators behind her - poets from Oodgeroo Noonuccal to Lionel Fogarty - who also experimented with writing the spoken word and creating new forms. When I first heard Ali read these poems I wanted copies immediately so I could spread the word.’ - Robert Adamson

    Judith E.P. Johnson / Alone at the Window: haiku & senryu

    ‘The haiku in Alone at the Window resonate with warmth, wit and wisdom. The poet’s tender observations and clear imagery create an unfolding of meaning as the reader reflects on each poem. These moments of celebration are imbued with a sense of wonder and appreciation for life, inviting us to share the richness to be found in daily living in our relationships with each other and the world around us.’ - Lyn Reeves

    Lizz Murphy / Walk the Wildly

    Lizz Murphy / Walk the Wildly

    Walk the Wildly with Lizz Murphy in this, her fifth collection of poetry, where winter is a lumbering lantern-jawed season, spring is a baking back, untimely frost a trollop.

    Judith E.P. Johnson / Waking from Dreams: haiku & senryu

    Judith E.P. Johnson / Waking from Dreams: haiku & senryu

    'Judith E. P. Johnson has that crucial characteristic for haiku poets, an ability to notice the minor miracles of ordinary existence - a blackbird bathing in a dog’s bowl, daisies ankle-deep on a lawn, the reflection of a jasmine flower in a rain puddle - these are acute observations that transform everyday life into fine haiku.' - Stephen Addiss, author of The Art of Haiku

    Maurice Whelan / A Season and a Time

    Maurice Whelan / A Season and a Time

    A Season and a Time has poems that are snapshots and poems that read like short stories. They scan Ireland's green fields and Australia's ochre earth. Inspiration comes from a snowdrop, a telephone call, a broken musical instrument, a night spent in sub-zero temperatures in the Snowy Mountains.

    Mel Hall / The Choir of Gravediggers

    The Choir of Gravediggers takes us back to late nineteenth century Melbourne; a cemetery and a church, choral singing, grave-trafficking, pet incineration, a shipwreck, competitive flower arranging, and one man struck by lightning. Based on extensive primary research, this historical novella is an impressive work of fiction.
