contemporary haibun celebrates its thirteenth year as the only book and series committed to the best haibun and haiga produced each year. This volume contains 64 haibun, ranging in style from memoir to journal to short story, in tone from the arch to the mystical, in content from the commonplace to the supernatural. Add to this 20 haiga which include the most traditional approaches side by side with creations employing a multitude of styles from other traditions and media, and the result is a volume unique in contemporary English literature.
"contemporary haibun has stood alone for a decade as the chief vehicle and bulwark of the burgeoning haibun movement in English. Without the vanguard role of this annual anthology, one might reasonably inquire how and perhaps if haibun would have survived.” —Jeffrey Woodward, Editor, Haibun Today
