Book Description

New Sun Rising: Stories for Japan is an anthology of stories, flash fiction, poems, haibun, haiku and artwork and photography donated by over 60 creators from all over the world to support those in Japan still affected by the aftermath of the 2011 tsunami and earthquake. All monies go the Japanese Red Cross.

This anthology was prepared by an international team of volunteers and includes the donation of a poem in German with English translation by award-winning Austrian poet and writer, Friederike Mayröcker.

Greg Mc Queen, founder of 100 Stories for Haiti and 50 Stories for Pakistan says this:

"You're holding a book that beat the odds. A book made from determination. From compassion. And by holding it - buying it - reading it - telling others about it - you stand with the writers and artists who created it: ordinary people who watched the lives of strangers destroyed and decided that they needed to help."

Celebrate with us Japan and its people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful read June 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This collection is not only wonderful in its contents - a selection of outstanding art, photos, stories, haikus etc. - but also in its purpose - helping the people of Japan who were hit by the catastrophic earthquake and tsunami in March 2011. The book is worth reading for both reasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Many parts of prose and poetry form a whole November 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
A fantastic kaleidoscope of writing talent welded together under the sign of the rising sun, celebrating Japan and keeping the memory alive of the terrible disasters that befell the country in March 2011, led by celebrated Austrian poet Friederike Mayröcker (and including my 'Gyoza Express'). I much enjoyed participating in this project and I wish it and all involved great success!

5.0 out of 5 stars Diverse and delicious November 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A wonderful collection that not only raises money for people who still, 18 months on (as I write this), need all the help they can get, but is a great read. From short stories to poems, novel extracts to haiku, there's something for everyone here whether they are Japanophiles or not.
