Skrywer: Petra Ferreira
“Springbokrugby op sy beste,” dit is wat mens kan ver-wag as die Bokke die stryd aansê in ‘n wedstryd teen die gedugte Wildebloues. Maar watter span gaan dié wedstryd wen? Uil weet hoe om ‘n rugbyspan af te rig en reël ook die wedstryd. Tarentaal is ‘n eersteklas omroeper en Aap glad nie so dom soos almal dink nie. Hy woeker met sy vele talente. Olifant werk hard om homself te bewys en Seekoei is soos gewoonlik op haar eie missie. Hierdie verhaal is ‘n moet vir alle rugby- en diereliefhebbers van ses tot ses en negentig.
STRUISBAAI TOE deur Vincent Charles Bastiaan
Skrywer: Vincent Charles Bastiaan
Struisbaai Toe, gaan oor `n messelaar, Aaron October, wat op 29 – jarige ouderdom van sy ouerhuis in Bredasdorp na Struisbaai wegloop om `n visserman te word. Na `n stryery en amper bakleiery met sy oudste broer, Sêm – voor hulle ma – besluit hy dis genoeg en loop die volgende oggend baie vroeg weg. Op pad Struisbaai toe gaan soek hy koffie by `n plaashuisie nadat hy rook uit die skoorsteen sien trek het. Daar ontmoet hy vir Pop en Sofie Mintoor.
Na `n kort romanse tree hy met Sofie in die huwelik. Sy was egter in `n ongewensde verhouding met Christo Toerien – Kitoe – `n uitsmyter en geweldenaar. Dit lei tot groot probleme vir Aaron en uiteindelik tot `n geveg tussen twee groot en sterk manne.
Daar is ook skaapstelery en die uitsetting van visser-manne uit hul huise ter sprake, asook die onnatuurlike dood van Pop se geheime minnaar. `n Lekker Overbergstorie oor die wel en wee van vissermanne, plaaswerkers en dorpsjapies.
LIFE UNRAVELLED deur Shaun Dreyden

SPIRALLING deur Daleen Coetzee
These whispers, feelings, longings, hopes, love given to you in the following was/is a long process of growth. Becoming aware of the amazing creations that are on this planet with us is a precious journey. Nature, according to humans, has come into its own, with science confirming what man has long ago sensed. These are condensed thoughts, facts, of a personal view on nature, especially trees. The drawings are in pencil and are trees that called and asked to be drawn, because they had a message for man.
Magdalena Janson was born in Northern Rhodesia, now Zambia, and grew up among the mammoth trees and nature of the equator. Lives in Pretoria now, doing things that there was no time for earlier. She wrote this book under the soul name of Sunrada and thanks all and everyone whose books or papers she perused and apologizes sincerely if maybe she used their thoughts.
Author: Hannes Deetlefs
Dear Reader, this is a book to enjoy, to remind, and to ponder in reflection thereof.
The story of the people from South West Africa and partly from South Africa from yonder years is portrayed as accurately as possible. The facts and choice of themes and events are based specifically on the accurate details found in the diaries and abundance of letters and photos, of Hermann Deetlefs and Elisabeth Deetlefs-Reimer. Painstaking effort was put into recording the facts of events and emotions, concerns and confusion which reigned during that difficult era to depict them exactly as they happened. Today it is easy to confirm or verify the mentioned facts by using the internet facilities. Of course there are always multiple versions of the same historical realities: The scientific approach, neutral, and then also politically enhanced versions. As far as it was possible, the neutral approach was selected, also pointing out when the neutral version did not suit any of the parties involved. A lot of the mentioned issues are no longer acceptable in the norms of today, but that is exactly the contrast we aim to accentuate. The ‘mini’ as an example, and so much more the ‘bikini’ was big news in those days, whereas today they hardly validate a mentioning. It is furthermore a fact that not all implications of the day can be projected as the Gospel truth. A lot of it is thus based on hearsay and speculation passed down through generations. Often it was merely conversations in the presence of the son and own diary notes where information was collected from.
Persons mentioned by their first names and surnames, or where their surnames are indicated with a capital letter, are politically correctly depicted as far as was possible. Persons just mentioned by their first names are people who did exist or a combination of actual persons represented by that person. This is also true with reference to the autobiographies of Hermann and Elisabeth Deetlefs self. Only the unimportant events in their lives were excluded. The well documented parts of their history are already story-like, but yet true from beginning to end.
