Wanderings - The retelling...

The famous story of Odysseus’s long journey home after the Trojan War, comprising some history and a whole lot of mythology, becomes the subject of this classical, yet essentially modern, novel.

The trials that King Odysseus must endure in strange lands and the lonely vigil of his Queen Penelope during his absence – all this will be familiar territory for many readers. What makes the novel so compelling are the psychological depths to which the author takes the reader in bringing his characters to life.

War of Dreams by Anton Venter

Alexander is a reluctant participant in World War Two. He is one of many Germans who never wanted to war, but it takes this teenager on a journey of disillusionment, self-discovery and ultimate growth. Although fiction, the story and characters are based on well-researched facts.

Much has been written about Germany’s Nazi regime and how Germany’s enemies experienced war. Has enough been written about the other side?

Warring Souls: When...

Warring Souls shows what happens when religious faith is governed by ethical passion ̶ and when it isn’t. It is the story of conflict between 35-year old Sarah Williams, the radical Professor of Christian Ethics at the fictitious St Mark’s College near George, and Dr Gerald Meyer, the recently-appointed and staunchly evangelical vicechancellor, together with their supporters. The story takes place in the first semester of 2006.

Whirlwind in the Thorntree...

The world is ending. People, animals, plants – there is a universal dying-off of the planet. Rumours persist of a reprieve but none appears. Two dogs and their human companions bond, as they trace a vivid circuit in a region not dissimilar to Cape  Town; they encounter the violence and decay as they travel, struggling to survive. It’s a tough passage through societies of degradation and unsettled by a war beyond the mountains that encircle them.

Writing for Salvation -...

Forty years after coming of age in South Africa in the 1960s, the author unearths a forgotten manuscript written at that time. Through rereading this early work, he revisits the political and religious falsehoods that had characterised the context of his genesis as a writer, particularly as revealed by the fictional characters that he then created.

Two women have been damaged by the realities of the time, one crushed by the withering world of Afrikaner urbanisation, the other by the devastating impact of racially defined morality. They bring tragedy and greater maturity to the central character, a young visual artist who falls in love with both these shattered individuals.
