I'm not sure what's going on over at Amazon -- maybe it's a glitch in the system -- but right now Baseball Haiku is on sale for only $5.15. (That's 74% off the regular price.) If you've ever thought about buying a copy, now is definitely the time.
Baseball Haiku is a 256-page hardcover book (the Kindle version is also $5.15) with great poems by Cor van den Heuvel, Ed Markowski, and George Swede, among many others. I'm not sure why Amazon has it marked down so much, but haiku fans should definitely snatch this one up.
Amazon offers free shipping on most orders over $25, so if you're looking to reach that $25 mark, here are some other books on sale:
- The Haiku Handbook, by William J. Higginson with Penny Harter - $10.08
- Essential Haiku, edited by Robert Hass - $12.48
- The Haiku Anthology, edited by Cor van den Heuvel - $11.53
- Japanese Death Poems, compiled by Yoel Hoffman - $11.53
P.S. My review of Modern Haiku is currently the featured article over at Helium.com. If you've never read Modern Haiku, it's a great magazine, filled to the brim with good poems.
