Red Moon Anthology

Big Sky: The Red Moon Anthology of English Language Haiku 2006, is now available. The Red Moon Anthology, edited by Jim Kacian, "assembles each year the finest haiku and related forms published around the world in English into a single book." The 2006 edition is the eleventh to be published so far. Its release is annually a significant event in the haiku community.

Oh, by the way, I'm in it, along with some friends of mine, and some people I don't know but whose work makes me wish I did.

For further information go to www.redmoonpress.com.

Anthologies from past years, as well as other books of interest to haiku readers, are available there as well.
