DIE DE ZALZE MOORDE deur Jaap Rabie

Die indiepte ondersoek en die verhaal gelaai met feite wat elders nie beskikbaar is nie beloof om lesers regop te laat sit.

Die skrywer het nie net dag vir dag die hofsaak bygewoon nie, maar het inligting direk van familie en vriende ontvang wat nie elders beskikbaar is of met koerante gedeel is nie. Die verhaal is dus nie slegs ‘n veslaggewing van gebeure nie, maar word uit die binnekringe van die mense direk geraak deur die afgryslike moorde vertel.

Die boek sal ongeveer die tweede week in Oktober 2017 bekend gestel word, indien die hofsaak afgehandel is.

Enigeen wat die boek nou reeds bestel kry dit teen die spesiale prys van R250 en ‘n uitnodiging na die bekendstellingsfunksie word ingesluit. Die boeke sal by die bekendstelling beskikbaar wees en wie nie die geleentheid bywoon nie sal hulle boeke per courier ontvang.

UITERS GEHEIM & ANDER ANEKDOTE deur Kobus de Villiers

Uiters Geheim en ander Anekdote:

 

Elke seun wil op een of ander stadium ʼn brandweerman, vlieënier, Rugby Springbok of renjaer word. Baie selde word die drome bewaarheid.

In die laat sestigs is Rusland en Amerika in die ruimtewedloop en daar stap ʼn man op die maan. Dit is die Koue Oorlog en nuwe vliegtuie en ruimtetuie word ontwikkel. ʼn Kaalvoet seun in die Vrystaatse myndorp, Welkom volg elke stap in die nuus en wil vir NASA en Boeing werk maar ook ʼn renjaer word. Met ʼn draagbare radio wat hy self ombou kan hy luister na die gesprekke tussen Houston en die ruimtemanne. Sy kamermure is beplak met prente van renmotors, vliegtuie en ʼn kaart van die maan gemerk met moontlike landingsplekke. Hy leef in sy komplekse verbeeldingswêreld, maak sketse en teken planne van vuurpylenjins en vliegtuigvlerke. Hy bou ʼn vuurpylenjin wat hy aan die loop kry op die trekker se kragparafien. Hy leer ook gou dat Suid Afrika se onaanvaarbare politiek dit nog meer onmoontlik maak vir ʼn Vrystaatse plaasseun om dié drome te kan beleef.

Hy gaan skool by Welkom Volkskool en Goudveld Hoërskool. Doen sy diensplig in 6 SAI en 2 SAI en studeer Ingenieurswese by Tukkies. Hy begin werk in Suid Afrika se jong lugvaart industrie en sy eindelose verbeelding lei daartoe dat hy die geleentheid kry om in die buiteland te gaan studeer en werk.

Dié storie is ʼn versameling anekdote van hierdie epiese reis vanaf die stowwerige gruispaaie van die Vrystaat tot die Autobahn na Stuttgart, die Golden State Freeway verby Caltech se Jet Propulsion Lab kampus en nuwe ontdekkings van vreemde plekke en nuwe tegnologieë. Hy woon en/of werk in Italië, Duitsland, Frankryk, Peru, Israel, Pakistan, Maleisieë, Singapore, Japan en die Emirate. In Rusland woon en werk sy span in Leonid Brezhnev se Dacha op een van die mees ongelooflike lugvaart samewerkingsprojekte. Daarna is hy in Kanada en die VSA en neem deel aan nuwe baanbrekers besoedelingsvrye tegnologie en ander lugvaartprojekte. Iewers langs die pad ontmoet hy ook ʼn ongelooflike mooi en slim Franse meisie. Projeksekerheid se mense is oortuig sy werk vir die Franse geheime diens. Weens die geheimhouding van dié soort werk het familie en vriende geen werklike idee van wat hy gedoen het nie. Nou dat alles lank gelede gebeur het en voor die herinneringe verlore gaan moet hy sy stories vertel. Sy versameling anekdote van vreemde lande en gebeure, ervarings en selfontdekking.

Dit is ʼn lang en ongelooflike pad van Welkom in die Vrystaat tot by Einstein se kantoor…

IN DIE AANSLAG OP DIE KLEUR VAN ONS VELLE VAL ONS BLOED OP DIE GROND deur Frans Calitz

Bones tree vorentoe en in vlot Afrikaans: “As jy skree, gooi ons jou fokken tong vir die honde,draai jou gat, the liberation has begun .”Tjaka voel die pankop se hande oor sy rug, die klam sweterige warm vleis teen sy agterstewe en wag vir die pyn waarvan die gevangenes in Pollsmoor hom vertel het, Hy wil skree, maar blaas soos een van die geelslange tussen die riete van die Doringrivier. “Now be a good boy,” hoor Tjaka die pankop se stem en voel die warm pis teen sy bene af .

Die pankop se asem is hortend in Tjaka se ore, die vingergrepe krampagtig om sy skouerknoppe. Tjaka beur orent, maar Bones hou en daar is niks wat hy kan doen nie.

Vir ‘n oomblik wonder hy of hy dalk droom, maar die pyn in sy lyf en die gille uit die pankop se keel laat nie ruimte vir illusies nie .

Gedurende die nag reen dit swaar, druppels ploffend op die dak, elke geluid dof en doods inTjakaseore .Hy trek sy knieë teen sy lyf op en die kombers oor sy kop .Uitgelewer aan die genade van ‘n primitiewe kontinent hy daar, soos ‘n fetus sonder baarmoeder, die naderende dood onafwendbaar. Sluiers van donkerheid dans voor sy oë. Sy lyf pyn en hy voel die bloed aan sy onderlyf. Iewers baie naby klink gille op, pynlike krete van ‘n vrou in nood . Die vrou gil weer. ‘n Paar mans skaterlag .Tjaka dink aan Lucy en voel sy maag saamtrek. Sy gesigspiere span onwillekeurig en die spiere in sy rug spring asof dit losruk waar dit aan sy ruggraat vas is. Pynlik intens ervaar hy sy dilemma en weet nie hoe om dit te hanteer nie. Soos ‘n kleuter wat ‘n ouer verloor en nie die rasionaal verstaan nie. Sy gedagtes loop vêr. Die verlede se lief en leed draai in sy kop, geluide en gesigte van weleer; die Maskam se loodregte kranse, ‘n hand vol gruis uit die Hantam, die soet hitte van die Doringrivier, die roep van die kokkewiet, oompie Drippie drink en naai sy vrou vir almal om te hoor.

DIE PSIGOPAAT ONTMASKER deur Dr Jannie Roux
[kad_youtube url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDSZAGDYM94&feature=share" ]

“Ek het hierdie dinamiese boek gelees.  Dit is die werk van `n kundige man wat die tema met wysheid en insig behandel gegrond op deeglike navorsing oor die verskynsel van die psigopatiese persoonlikheidsversteuring.  Ek het nog nie `n boek teegekom wat hierdie onderwerp op die vlak hanteer wat dr Roux dit doen nie.”

Dr AC Lawrence, Praktiserende Psigiater

“Jannie Roux se manuskrip gooi die lesersnet wyd, sonder om oppervlakkig te wees.  Ons leer die mens agter makabere gebeure ken, kom meer te wete van beweegredes en oorsake van hierdie tipe anti-sosiale gedrag en spreek die immer aanwesige vraag van aanspreeklikheid en behandelbaardheid aan”

Marius Ackerman, Praktiserende Advokaat

“Ek dink die skrywer het dit reggekry om die “waserigheid” rondom psigopatie op `n verstaanbare manier te ontsluit.  Ek dink die boek bied genoeg stof tot nadenke vir praktisyns, akademici, studente en sommer ook vir die leek wat graag meer wil weet oor die gedragsversteuring.  Die boek is goed gebalanseer en smelt seminale inligting van die verlede op `n kreatiewe wyse saam met resente verwikkelings rakende psigopatie.  Die maklike wyse waarop soms moeilike konsepte verduidelik word noodsaak spesiale melding.  Die skrywer se bydrae bied ook `n vars oënskou op die neurofisiologiese aspekte wat met psigopatie geassosieer word.”

“Moordenaar” Oscar

Skrywer: Advokaat John R. Bauer

Jy mag nie moord pleeg nie: Eksodus 20:13

‘n Raaiselagtige misdaadtoneel en die psige van die man daaragter… ‘n man gedryf deur onsekerheid en vrees of aggressie en woede?  ‘n Hulpelose gestremde of ‘n narsistiese kansvatter?  `n Regverdige hofsaak of partydigheid en teistering?

Is die geloofwaardigheid van die Suid-Afrikaanse regsproses in die proses benadeel?

Kyk saam met advokaat Bauer vanuit ‘n nuwe perspektief na ‘n saak wat die wêreld geruk het en besluit dan self… is Oscar Pistorius ‘n moordenaar?

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:

‘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?

Descendants of the bloodlines – Casters of Light by J.G. Erasmus

Once, thousands of years ago, when man had barely begun to farm the lands, domesticate animals, and form small communities that traded with each other, a strange race of people emerged from across the seas. Gifted with incredible powers over the natural world, they enslaved the rest of mankind, proclaiming themselves to be gods, and forced them to built great stone monuments and temples all across the world as testament to their supreme power and rule. The enslaved people had many names for them, but most simply referred to them as the ‘Ancient Ones’, for it was rumored that they were the remnants of a civilization from a previous, almost forgotten age that had ended in a great cataclysm. They never seemed to grow older, were petty and cruel, and ruled with impunity for almost a thousand years over those they considered as lesser than themselves; raping, plundering and murdering at will. Eventually they became so corrupt and decadent that they turned on each other in their insatiable greed and lust for more power.

But the children born from these atrocities weren’t normal, either, soon showing to had inherited magical talents of their own. Magic invariably different from that which the Ancients Ones wielded, but no less formidable, and the enslaved people realized that they finally had a weapon with which to fight back against their unscrupulous oppressors. These children were kept hidden and revered as saviors, for one day they would fight the sorcerers on their own ground to free humanity from their tyranny. It became apparent, however, that these ‘Gifted Ones’, as they later became known, could not produce children with each other unless their talents were similar in nature, and then passed only those same talents on to the next generations. The birthrate between Gifted Ones and normal humans was extremely low, and if children were produced, they didn’t always inherit the Gifts, either. Those that did, found that their power was severely diminished, and even more so with every consecutive generation.

So the Gifted Ones were divided into groups according to their different types of abilities, and were encouraged to grow and populate only within their own ranks, giving rise to the Bloodlines. In this way they spawned a secret army of Gifted Ones who, as time passed, came to number in their thousands.

Thinking themselves safe in their citadels of stone, and with their lustful gazes still focused on each other, the Ancient Ones were taken by complete surprise when the slaves revolted. With the Bloodlines at their side, they finally rose up and destroyed the Ancient Ones utterly…

It was ironic, however, that the Bloodlines eventually came to replace the Ancient Ones as rulers over mankind, and became as corrupt and decadent as their predecessors. They turned on each other, too, Bloodline fighting against Bloodline, and so it all came full circle as they were themselves finally overthrown by those they sought to rule. The survivors withdrew from the public eye, going into hiding amongst the Commoners, as they referred to those without the Gifts. They removed every reference, every trace of themselves, and the Ancient Ones, from the histories of man, and so faded into obscurity over the passage of time. Only the ruins of stone structures and monuments remained in evidence of their passing.

But the jealousy and hatreds between the Bloodlines were deeply ingrained, and their feud with each other merely continued in secret. It rages on even now…
