    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 59.95

    University of Queensland Press 2014; US$ 12.99

    A vivid, new collection of poetry from one of Tasmania?s premier talents, each of the poems in this work are influenced by Kathryn Lomer?s considerable skills as a storyteller and convey sensuality, fresh imagery, and tension between the grounded and the whimsical.

  • Re: Mediumby Simone Brühl; Jakob C. Heller

    Tectum Verlag 2014; US$ 23.13

    Einer verbreiteten medienphilosophischen These zufolge verschwindet das Medium im reibungslosen Vollzug seiner Mittlerfunktion; der 'Bote' tritt hinter die Botschaft zurück. Im Kontrast zu dieser These stellt der vorliegende Band das scheinbar Transparente, Ephemere, Verschwindende in den Mittelpunkt. In den Fokus der Aufmerksamkeit rücken jene historischen... more...

  • The Snow In Usby David P. Reiter

    IP (Interactive Publications) 2013; US$ 9.00

  • Limenby Susan Hawthorne

This poetic novella grips you with its language, its pace, and its... more...

  • In Continentsby Richard Reeve

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    In his third collection, In Continents, Richard Reeve examines a catalogue of historical incidents – from the violence of Tiberius and Edward III to the death of James Cook?s Polynesian companion, Tupaia – to illustrate the habitual barbarity, selfishness and stupidity of humans, in counterpoint with our prospective responsibility as stewards of the... more...

  • The Settler's Plotby Alex Calder

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 29.15

    Europeans arrive on a beach, make markets and push inland. They take the land and transform it. They make themselves at home; they dream of other places. And the stories they write take shape in settings – the beach, the farm, the bush, the suburb – that become imaginary versions of actual places. Those settings sometimes host stories that are too... more...

  • Calypsoby Bob Orr

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    Following his very popular collection Valparaiso, poet Bob Orr presents his new book Calypso. Orr?s poems have a wistful yet forceful beauty, presenting images with depth, colour, light, and the narrative drive and cadences of a true storyteller. In the first of Calypso?s four sections, ‘Purple Octopus?, the poet guides us on a voyage though space... more...

  • Fast Talkerby David Eggleton

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    A collection of poetry by a self-confessed ‘ranter?, Fast Talker is energetic, contemporary, and filled with an emphatic, punchy political and social awareness. Some of the poems are indeed Eggleton?s well-known ‘rants? – part showman patter, part incantation, part prophetic diatribe – that range helter skelter over the Kiwi psyche, the South Pacific,... more...
