Book of the Week: Tug of the Current


The Book of the Week is Tug of the Current: The Red Moon Anthology of English Language Haiku, 2004. It is the eighth volume of this popular series started by Jim Kacian and the Red Moon editorial staff in 1997 and continuing until today.  Editors scan a variety of print and online publications, including journals, anthologies and chapbooks, in the effort to  make their canvass exhaustive, and to live up to their intentions to bring you the best in English language haiku published that particular year.
