A review – the first! – of number eight wire has this week been posted to the Australia Haiku Society website. Written by Vanessa Proctor, a former resident in New Zealand, the review describes the fourth New Zealand haiku anthology as “delightful” and “beautifully produced”.
“This reviewer read through the anthology and then immediately turned back to the beginning to read it again, such is the quality of the work.”
Update, July 15: A short review has also appeared in Frogpond 42.2, the journal of the American Haiku Society. Read it here (opens as a pdf, scroll down to the second item). The reviewer calls it “this fine collection”.
Another short review in Modern Haiku 50.2, which includes “impressive”. Read it here (opens as a pdf, go to page 138)
