            The Fitz-Boodle Papers (EPUB ebook)

            By Thackeray, William Makepeace

            William Makepeace Thackeray is lauded for his razor-sharp wit in satirical novels such as Vanity Fair. In this epistolary collection, Thackeray channels his jocularity into a series of pompous letters touching on subjects as diverse as food, literary figures, romance, and general... life advice. A must-read for fans of Thackeray's hilariously skewed view of the world.

            Myths and Legends of China (EPUB ebook)

            By Werner, E. T. C.

            The West's first encounters with the folk tales and myths of the East proved to be a heady experience, as they were based on an entirely different value system and worldview than those that are reflected in the Greek myths and most subsequent Western folk tales. In Myths and Lege...nds of China, author E.T.C. Werner offers up a rich tapestry of Chinese folk narratives. A must-read for fans of world myths, fairy tales, and legends.

            For this issue we are shifting south, and are delighted that Dunedinite Sue Wootton is our guest editor for our 2014 issue. Sue is probably best known as a poet - she has published three collections of poetry, most recently By Birdlight (Steele Roberts, 2011), and has won awards ...for her poems. But she's also an experienced prose writer. Her ebook of three short stories, The Happiest Music on Earth, was published in 2012 and her children's book, Cloudcatcher, came out in 2010. Sue has twice been a runner up in the BNZ Katherine Mansfield short story awards, has been a finalist in the Sunday Star Times and Royal Society of New Zealand Manhire Prize short story competitions, and has won the Aoraki Literary Festival short story prize. The theme for JAAM 32 is 'shorelines'. JAAM publishes poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, essays, photography and other artwork.
