Take Five: Best Contemporary Tanka, Volume 3


Take Five: Best Contemporary Tanka, Volume 3"The poems in this year’s anthology reflect the great diversity of themes to be expected from such a diverse range of poets. Yet two themes recur frequently in this volume, and indeed the previous volumes and tanka in general: love and death.

Strangely, when writers are attempting to describe what tanka is to those unfamiliar with it, they often mention the subject of love, but rarely mention death, even though death poems have been a major part of the tanka tradition all the way back to the Man’yosh!"  (The editor, Take Five: Best Contemporary Tanka Volume 3)

The Assassin’s Mistress by J. H. Bográn

Review by MJ Logan

Book cover image of The Assassin's MistressLength: 3500 word short story.
Rated: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Genre: Crime Thriller
Inside: Deception, love, murder and a twisted destiny.

"Take my hand if you want to live!" It was more than an offer to save her life, although even professional hit-man Robert Prescott could not have dreamed it was so. The Assassin's Mistress has a spy-thriller feel and the well written story keeps you turning the pages from beginning to end. A great read and your only regret will be putting it down.
