Kia ora koutou. It’s been a while.
We’ve opened a bit of a shop over at the THDWSIH site, so I thought I might do the same here. You can find books, comics, original art and high quality prints, and there’ll likely be a few other things before too long also. Buy now, before they get dusty.
So I’ve mentioned this book elsewhere on the site, but the pub. date is approaching quickly, and it’s time to run up a flag.
My friend Mike Brown and I have produced this book see? It’s called The Heading Dog Who Split In Half: Legends and Tall Tales From New Zealand and it’s a collection of local stories we think are interesting, or important, or revealing, and deserve to be more widely known. I think I can safely say that all of them, in one way or another, have struck a personal chord with us. We hope that they will with the reader as well; that they’ll start conversations, help to recall other stories, and not least, be entertaining.
The book is being published by Potton & Burton, top notch producer of quality NZ books, and will be available in shops in late October 2015. You can pre-order it here, but since you’re smart and discerning, before you do that you should head over to The Old, Weird New Zealand for more info on the book, a bunch of artwork, some ramblings, and more. Kia tere!
And stay tuned.
