Associate editor of The Heron’s Nest, Scott Mason, has released a new book entitled The Wonder Code: Discover the Way of Haiku and See the World with New Eyes. John Stevenson, the managing editor of The Heron’s Nest writes, “The Wonder Code is both a book about haiku and a book of haiku. It contains five linked essay chapters by Scott (plus an Introduction and Afterword) as well as five extensive ‘galleries’ of haiku poems, each related to the theme of its preceding chapter. Altogether the volume features more than 450 standout haiku, all of which first appeared in The Heron’s Nest in the last two decades. And for those who have come to appreciate Scott’s own work, the book includes a separate, generous selection of his haiku.”
A number of Australian and New Zealand haiku poets also have work in the book including; Natasha Adams, Nathalie Buckland, Owen Bullock, Lorin Ford, Jo McInerney, Sue Mill, Ron Moss, Greg Piko, Cynthia Rowe, Sandra Simpson, Jennifer Sutherland and Quendryth Young. A reference to Quendryth Young’s, “A Haiku Workshop with Quendryth Young” also appears in the book. For further details and ordering information click here.
