Dance on a Volcano: A Geological Travelogue

by Roger Vine

When ScopeViews author and geologist Roger Vine was little he caught tonsillitis and spent skiving weeks off school in bed. Meanwhile, his mum gave him a huge old geography textbook to read, hoping he might get some education anyway. But instead of meandering rivers and palm oil production, what caught his attention was the chapter on volcanoes.

Fast forward thirty years and a chance encounter with a little puffing symbol on a map of Sumatra sent Vine on a volcanic exploration, fulfilling that boyhood fascination with lava and hot springs, smoking landscapes and boiling rivers. His travels around the Pacific Ring of Fire took more than a decade, from the remote Kamchatka Peninsula to Patagonia, to an Asian megalopolis that starts shaking in the night and a little American town with a dangerous secret. On the way he encountered not only unstable terrain and the colourful characters who make their lives there, but one reckless and foolhardy bloke in particular – himself.

A Stone from Anzac Cove & other Travellers Tales

by Neil S. Rawlins

This collection of short stories is mainly based on my experiences over the last 35 years as a tour leader in various parts of the World, although some have their origin in my earlier days. Only one, The Pilgrim, is primarily a work of fiction but has been based on experiences and little incidents that happened during my travels in India, for example the incident with the European lady and the leper in Pushkar did actually happen to one of my group, as did my encounter with the sleeping beggar in Batote. Other stories are cameos of adventures in places as diverse as The Shetland Islands, Crete, Vanuatu and the Chatham Islands. ‘Old Harry’ relates to a teenage memory of a neighbour who was a veteran of the horrors of Passchendaele and ‘The Pistol’ combines an experience in Herat, Afghanistan in 1970 with travels in Pakistan & the Khyber region 10 years later.
‘Whangaparaoa’ is a story of childhood memories of a holiday area which has now been overtaken by the urban sprawl of a large city, but idyllic lands still remain in places like the remote Chatham Islands and the delightful islands of Vanuatu. My first excursion outside my native New Zealand was on the so-called ‘banana-boat’ which plied each month up to the Pacific Islands to collect bananas and copra and to deliver necessary supplies. It is, on reflection, a very happy memory of a by-gone era.
My lead story & title was inspired by my recent visit to the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey for the 100th Anniversary of the landing of Australian & New Zealand troops in World War One. While walking on Anzac Cove I picked up a small stone and brought it home. It has given me encouragement to write and re-edit these stories. The World is a wonderful place and there are many, many fascinating stories out there and so many places to go. As the Roman poet Horace once wrote: ‘ Eheu, fugaces labuntur anni – alas, the fleeting years go by’.

by Travis Rosenberg


Fresh off the Donald Trump Presidential Election win, Comedian and Satirist Travis Rosenberg releases the must-read book of the year, “The Hitchhiker’s Guide To Canada.” Part novel, part memoir, part rant, all-hilarious, Rosenberg outlines the reasons he is booking his flight to Canada before the inauguration of Donald Trump.

Travis Rosenberg was an American comic but now performs exclusively in Montreal, Quebec, and other Canadian cities. When not making people laugh, he enjoys spending time with his lovely wife Samantha and his two daughters Sarah and Christine. The family lives safely and quietly in an undisclosed Canadian province. Currently, Travis has been spending time writing and watching Red Dawn and studying the Tim LaHaye book series, Left Behind, in order to help the remnant who survives the General Trump reign of terror.
