"Matkakoti Turvala olisi todellisuudessa voinut olla olemassa jollain pikkupaikkakunnalla. Mutta luultavasti talo olisi jo hylätty tai otettu muuhun käyttöön. Matkakoti, matkustajakoti, resandehem, kaikki ne ovat huolestuttavaa vauhtia katoamassa. Nykyisin niin monet matkustavaiset haluavat kaikki mukavuudet huoneeseen – maksoi mitä maksoi. Ja matkakodin pito kun on työtä vuokaudet ympäri. Tämän tarinan nuoret, Raija ja Reijo ovat kahden vaiheilla: jatkaako Matkakoti Turvalaa Kirjan kuvitus palauttaa muistoja matkakodeissa yöpyneille. Se avaa oven myös niille, jotka ovat aiemmin nähneet vain romanttisen kyltin puutalon seinässä ja kenties houkuttaa astumaan sisään seuraavalla reissulla. Käynti kannattaa, sillä matkakodeissa on yhä oma jäljittelemätön tunnelmansa. Samalla sängynreunalla Tapsa Rautavaara on joskus saattanut näppäillä kitaraansa…"
Sharon Bryan, poet and editor of River City, wrote to almost eighty women poets asking them how they felt about their particular relationship to literary tradition in her quest to understand and sort out her own confusions on the topic of gender and poetry.
This volume of twenty-two essays by women poets is the fruit of that venture. Among topics considered are the childhood experiences that shaped these authors both as writers and as women, to the thoughts on the poets.

Comments by Ferris Gilli, Associate Editor The Heron’s Nest haiku journal, Author of Shaped by the Wind. and past instructor of the Haibiscus School of Traditional Haiku. LANDMARKS: A Haibun Collection by Ray Rasmussen is not only beautiful to look at and has a pleasing typeset, it is one of the best books in a haiku-related genre that I've ever read. Rasmussen evokes a wide range of emotions with these haibun. I've read a number of them so many times they have become old friends. They've also shown me how I can sharpen my own haibun. ~ Ferris Gilli Comments by Jeffrey Woodward, Author of Evening in the Plaza and Another Garden, and Editor of Modern Haibun and Tanka Prose and of Haibun Today. The haibun of Ray Rasmussen revel in close observation and personal experience. They take for their inspiration the everyday person, place or thing and these subjects commonly are ones with which their author shares an intimate relationship. Like the inuksuk that graces the cover of Landmarks, Rasmussen's haibun seem constructed of whatever stones lie near at hand, whatever materials he can appropriate from his immediate environs and, in doing so, they fashion a chronicle of his life's journey, part wilderness travel, part interior odyssey. Like the inuksuk, these haibun are markers in the otherwise normal landscapes of all of our lives. They are testimonials, as the meaning of the word inukshuk implies, that "someone was here" before. ~ Jeffrey Woodward,
Curiosity has consequences… It can cost you your childhood–if it doesn’t kill you. For the new African country Zambia, 1964 heralds a joyous and turbulent time: celebration of its independence from Britain. But for thirteen-year-old Rianna and ten-year-old Lukas and Anthony, life on Madzi Moyo–a tucked-away Mission station–is idyllic. Their biggest concern is remembering to wear a hat against the searing sun and surviving the housemother’s purple cabbage pie. That changes when the trio stumbles upon two hidden AK-47s, and is caught by Mavuto, the guns’ owner, a staunch African nationalist. He abducts them on the spot: afraid they will telltale and jeopardize his private plan to ensure his country’s independence. Over the course of a single night and morning, a race and rescue mission ensues, which, as the hours pass, becomes more violent and out-of-control. About the Author Danie Botha was born in Zambia and grew up on Mission stations similar to the ones depicted in the novel. He completed his school education and medical training in South Africa. He lives in Canada. Interview with the Author Q – What makes the Be Silent series unique? A – Several things. It is a mini-series, but the books can be read as stand-alone novels. Be Good (a novella), is the prequel to the novel Be Silent. The third and final book in this series is scheduled for Spring of 2017. I wanted to create novels that reflect and paint images of the places and people I grew up with in Africa or came in contact with or read about but never had the opportunity to meet.
(Although, keep in mind—the stories are all made up.) In fiction, I read and enjoy different genres—from literary to contemporary to historical fiction. What best describes this series is: a 20th-century historical action adventure. Be Good and Be Silent are indeed mixtures of many genres, which bring homage to the complex nature of the emancipation of the Southern African region and its peoples, following centuries of colonialization, ethnic conflict and political turmoil. Q – Is there any particular order to read the books? A – No. I first wrote be Silent, although Be Good takes place several years earlier. But you will still enjoy Be Good, even if you first read Be Silent. Q – Why should readers bother with this mini-series? A – Readers who enjoy more modern (contemporary) historical fiction, interspersed with immersion into the 1950s and 1960s Southern Africa, spiced with multiculturalism and fast-paced action adventures, will enjoy these “rollercoaster rides.” Thank you for reading!
