Red Moon Press has just released big data: The Red Moon Anthology of English-Language Haiku 2014, the nineteenth volume in this annual best-of series. I am happy to say that I have a haiku included in its pages. The Red Moon Anthology series collects the best haiku and related writing from around the world written in English each calendar year.
Another one from Red Moon Press, Something Out of Nothing, showcases the sumi-e art of Ion Codrescu, one of the best sumi-e artists in the world. He turned one of my haiku into a haiga painting (the haiku originally appeared in bottle rockets and is collected in my second chapbook Rope Marks):
darkening sky . . .
the sound of thunder
A beautiful book to have and show off. Here’s the cover:
Two more recent anthology appearances include Take-Out Window: Haiku Society of America Members’ Anthology 2014, edited by Gary Hotham; and The Sacred in Contemporary Haiku, edited by Robert Epstein, which reprints five of my haiku. Both of these anthologies are available from Amazon.com.
