            It was widely reported, when he died earlier in 2020, that Gordon McLauchlan's last book was "Stop the Clock" but, in fact, he was finalising details of Encounters until several days before his death in January. In 26 engaging and provocative essays, Gordon McLauchlan writes abou...t people, illustrious and unknown, he has rubbed up against since his Press Gallery days in Wellington in the early 1950s. He gives fresh, and beautifully written, insights into a kaleidoscope of human nature - providing new perspectives on famous politicians, writers, broadcasters and 'ordinary' people who piqued his interest. Most - like Holland, Holyoake, Holmes, Key, Lange, Shadbolt, Davin and Ihimaera - are New Zealanders. Others - like Noam Chomsky and Felipe Fernandez-Armesto- are from elsewhere. Gordon McLauchlan was one of New Zealand best-known and most popular writers, cultural critics and social historians. In a long career he was a newspaper journalist, magazine editor, columnist, book reviewer, radio commentator, and television frontperson. For 10 years he was the editor-in-chief of The New Zealand Encyclopedia, and the author of more than 20 books, with The Passionless People the most famous of several bestsellers.

            In 1970, National Business Review, commenced publication. This innovative, under-resourced, but courageous fortnightly tabloid had a small initial impact, but within five years was a major weekly publication. Grouped around it were other magazines, books, and newsletters. Launche...d by young entrepreneur Henry Newrick, it had editorial input from many of the young journalists of the 1960s. NBR became essential business reading while opening a new market to advertisers and setting new standards in journalism. This memoir, written by one of its founding writers (and the lawyer who fought off legal attacks for many years), is much more than just the story of NBR. It discusses major changes in New Zealand society, politics, the economy, and investigative journalism. It chronicles the way in which a few young New Zealanders with ambition but no money, grew an enterprise which attracted a succession of owners, gained millions in value, and led to its Fairfax-funded launch as a daily paper in1987 which lasting four years. The early lives of many who are now well-known included work for NBR. Its editors from Barrie Saunders, Reg Birchfield and Ian F.Grant, to Bob Edlin,Nevil Gibson, Colin James, Jim Eagles, and Warren Berryman set new standards for business reporting. The two decades end with the departure of the last of the innovators, the defeat of Fairfax's bold plans, and its sale to a new owner. NBR returned to a weekly paper which lasted almost another 30 years in print and is still published online. The first two decades of publishing had many exciting times, all captured in this book. The Author: Hugh Rennie is a lawyer who was one of NBR's initial editorial team, stepping aside for Barrie Saunders who became the first editor, but remaining involved to the end of the second decade. A Wellington lawyer and company director, and a writer, he has drawn on his own knowledge of the early years, the recollections of others, surviving company records, and private sources. Mu

            In this collection of poetry Glenn Colquhoun writes to the young people he works with at the Horowhenua Youth Health Service.

Gathered together they represent an inventory of... one doctor's consultations taken home, responses to those moments he might have woken in the middle of the night and wished he had said better.
