“Murderer” Oscar

Author: Advocate John Bauer

You shall not murder: Exodus 20:13

A tampered crime scene, an injustice and the psyche of the man behind it all. Was he driven by insecurity and fear… or aggression and anger?  A helpless cripple or a narcissist with a chip on his shoulder?

Was the South African legal system tarnished by a trial ridelled with harassment and bias?

Join advocate John Bauer as he looks at a case that shook the world with a new perspective, and then decide for yourself … is Oscar Pistorius a murderer?

Snowbird

Skrywer:  Theodoor George Kieser

Their land was invaded by foreigners from far-away places. With them they brought death and destruction. Their peace was disrupted and in their quest for gold and new land, they started to murder the inhabitants that used to roam free. After long battles and miserable slavery forced upon them, the inhabitants of the land, of which the Ongo tribe were part of, decided that enough was enough, they have to take a stand, or die. The leaders of the different tribes came together, and long meetings with the leaders of the foreigners ensued, but the outcome was not satisfactory, therefor the decision was made to leave their old hunting grounds.

Hawk and Sunshine, Patriarch and Matriarch of the Ongo tribe decided to move away with their tribe from their territorial land to seek a better living place, away from the strange people with their strange and cruel ways. After months of suffering on their long journey, and the loss of many beloved ones, who earmarked their road of suffering with the pyre’s of death, they found what they were looking for; peace and freedom.

Then the god of love looked down upon them and a baby girl was born-Snowbird. But although they found joy and peace in their new land, and joy with the birth of their one and only daughter, grief and sorrow were not far off, and the road to overcome that grief and sorrow was full of rocks, mud, and sometimes obstructions that seemed impossible to overcome. But with determination, and the will to survive, they took a stand against everything that spelled evil. And when their beloved granddaughter became the victim of a half-breed, all hell broke loose.

A Plea for the Elephants Web Pic
A plea for the elephants

Author: Kevin Parkinson

 

Over a period of eighty years, between 1979 and 1987, Hong Kong’s mafia-style syndicates, owners of ivory carving factories with no feeling whatsoever for the plight of Africa’s elephants, imported about 4 000 tonnes of ivory from various African countries. This sort of tonnage represented the slaughter of more than 400 000 of African’s elephants. Let us bear in mind that at the time of writing, 2015, that figures sums up to what is now considered left of Africa’s elephants – in all probability even less.

The carnage continues to this every day, with between 25 000 and 30 000 elephants being slaughtered annually by poachers, the killing of elephants outpacing the birth rate. Wealthy king pins connected to Chinese triads control these syndicates that have connections with corrupt government, game development  and custom officials.

Considering that during the 1970’s Africa’s elephant population was approximately 1 500 000, it is obvious that poachers have won the ivory “war”.

Ivory carving factories continue to operate in China and Japan, turning out necklaces, bracelets, rings, chopsticks and other carvings, to be sold in licensed shops. Bull elephants are most sought after by poachers, with the result that breeding bull are becoming fewer and fewer.

During the female’s elephant life – if she lives out her natural lifespan – she may give birth to approximately six calves. They are not prolific breeders: there is usually a gap of six to seven years between each calf.

The world’s largest land mammal, the intelligent and gentle elephant, is in serious trouble. This book tells of the plight of Africa’s elephants and some of the author’s experiences. It is a plea for the elephants.

A Plea for the elephants documentary will be available soon:

Brief
‘n Brief aan die engel

Skrywer: Alta Venter

Maxi werk in ‘n boekwinkel op ‘n plattelandse dorpie. Sy, haar broer Deon en haar ouers woon op die dorp. ‘n Hegte gesin. Haar vriend sterf in ‘n lokval – dieselfde aand wat hy haar sou vra om te trou. ‘n Vreemdeling besoek haar in die hospitaal. Sy kan nie die intense blou van sy oë – wat voel of hy dwarsdeur haar kyk – vergeet nie.

Vreugdevure brand toe haar werkgewer met een van die personeellede in die huwelik tree. Sy vrou gee aan haar ‘n boek as geskenk wat te veel wense oorlaat – ‘n Besoek van ‘n Engel. ‘n Geskenk met ‘n doel. Verskeie opvolgbesoeke kom van Rudolf, die man met die blou oë. Is hy werklik ‘n hemelse wese?

En, wie is Bernard de Klerk? Sal hy die kleur en liefde in haar lewe bring?

Ditsem vir Kotiljons

Skrywer: Dr. Johannes van der Merwe

Dr. Johannes van der Merwe het as predikant ryke ervaring met mense oor dekades heen opgedoen, maar hy verkies om die fiktiewe aspek daarvan te beklemtoon deur onder sy noemnaam, Dunes, te skryf.

Al is die karakters denkbeeldig spreek hy namens húlle die wens uit om op jou volgende vakansie saamgeneem te word. Omdat hulle van mening is dat hulle tot die plesier daarvan kan bydra. Hulle sien wel die lewe soms as ’n probleem, ja, maar ’n probleem wat wag om opgelos te word, miskien met ‘n titseltjie humor waar nodig!

Alhoewel in die verhale lewenswerklikhede aan die orde is, vermy hy doelbewus om lesers met die absurde besig te hou.

Mag die leser eerder geïnspireer word om menigmaal geselskap op te fris met, ‘Ek het êrens gelees dat…’ en so blywende waarde ervaar van die verhale wat in die bundel opgeneem is.

Tanja

Skrywer: Francois Stemmet

 

Liefdesdriehoeke. Familietwis. Desperaatheid.

Tanja Naude het nooit gedink dat sy en Graham Bradley verlief sou raak nie, maar wat sy nog minder verwag het, is dat haar ma, Celia Naude wat so gesteld is op sosiale status, hierdie gesiene dokter sou afkeur as aanstaande skoonseun.

Wat Tanja egter nie weet nie, is dat Celia Naude ’n donker geheim saam met haar dra, en sy sal alles in haar vermoë doen om Tanja se toekoms met Graham Bradley in die wiele te ry.

De Waal, Tanja se broer, is verlief op Sonja, maar sy het net oë vir Graham en sal enigiets doen om haar kloue in hom in te slaan; selfs te konkel met Mevrou Naude …

Tanja soek toevlug op al die verkeerde plekke, en depressie sak oor haar soos ’n donker wolk. Sal sy daaruit kan ontsnap, of gaan haar moeder se gekoesterde wrok haar dogter se lewe ook verwoes?
