THE RAFT by Fred Strydom

Captivating, compelling, and moving

On Day Zero everyone’s memory is wiped clean. No-one remembers anything, or anyone.

A mysterious and oppressive movement called The Renascence comes to power and forces people to live in isolated communes and to conform to their ideals. As memories of families and past lives start to trickle back, some people begin to question the regime.

Kayle Jenner has questions, and he’s punished just for having them. He escapes from his isolated beach commune when the raft he’s strapped to for punishment breaks free. With help from the enigmatic Gideon, Kayle sets out to find and rescue his son Andy.

Kayle doesn’t find it odd that the people he meets all have memories that help and guide him. Until it becomes clear that some people’s ‘memories’ are not their own.

But Kayle’s are. Kayle definitely remembers Andy. And he’s going to find him.

Justin Fox Unspotted

Justin Fox has just released an ebook, Unspotted: One Man’s Insane Search for Africa’s Most Elusive Leopard,with Mampoer.

Quinton Martins is a patient man, if only when it comes to the Cape mountain leopard. In the harsh mountains of the Cederberg, he spends months in icy cold conditions tracking them, often with as little to go on as faint spoor or partially decomposed scat. Justin Fox spends time in the Cederberg with this half-man, half-leopard, conservationist, to learn more about the madness that keeps Quinton in the mountains day in and day out.

Justin Fox Africa Lens

Our desire to view, capture and share our experiences is obvious in more than a century of travel photography. In Africa, there is probably no single entity that has produced as many varied images as Getaway. The magazine has portrayed the continent’s people, fauna and landscapes in myriad indelible ways over the past 20 years. Assignments for Getaway have found our photographers riding camels across the Sahara, being manhandled by gorillas in Rwanda, micro-lighting over the Victoria Falls or snowmobiling across the wastes of Antarctica.

Justin Fox The Marginal Safari

‘I’ve been craving the road for some time,’ writes Justin Fox, odd words for this most seasoned of travel writers. But there is more to it: ‘Restless, anxious about an uneventful slide into my late 30s…’ And thus begins ten thousand kilometres around the edge of the Republic. Hugging the comforts which distance offers agitated souls, he bears east from Cape Town. This is fatherland, and for Justin his father’s land, which the famous architect Revel Fox has marked as much as he had shaped his son s own identity. Justin tarries at outposts and towns; he skips entire cities to favor the off-beat treasures of characters fashioned less by convention than by their own battles against nature or circumstance. Back home his dad is fighting cancer. Having travelled with acute observation he reports like a novelist, stringing together scenes, pictures, communities and characters to form a totality of what South Africa is today as seen from its margins: a sad, exciting clash of histories and stories.
