The Haiku Society of America has published several books, including annual members anthologies and a history of the society, The Haiku Path.

This is a complete listing of all book publications from HSA, listed with complete ISBN information.


Haiku Society of America ISBNs

The HSA’s annual membership anthologies were instituted in 1993 by Michael Dylan Welch, who did the layout and wrote the introduction for the first anthology. Since then he has been an advisor to most subsequent editors through personal communication and through the HSA Publications Guide:

From 2002, the HSA uses the “ISBN-13” for each of its member anthologies or other book publications. The ISBN should appear on the copyright page and on the book’s back cover. Do not use the ISBN-10 (those are from their older system). The EAN code is used if a barcode is added to the back cover, but HSA books have generally not had barcodes (it is fine for HSA publications to include one, however). The HSA’s ISBNs have traditionally been administered by the HSA’s first vice president, who is considered the “owner” of this list, to make sure record keeping is kept straight by just one person. Since 2014, the HSA’s first president must obtain the ISBN number from Bowker, the USA ISBN allocator. The user name and password used at Bowker.com is to be passed from first VP to the next.

A note about naming conventions: Every annual HSA membership anthology should have a title and subtitle in the following form, where XXXXX is a creative title chosen by the editor(s), and what follows the colon is a subtitle (which may or may not appear on the cover, but must appear on the title page): XXXXX: 20XX Haiku Society of America Members’ Anthology.

—Michael Dylan Welch

The following are all HSA publications using the society’s original ISBN (9631467 was the HSA’s original “publisher code”). The first book, The Haiku Path, chronicled the history of the society’s first twenty years. All subsequent books are annual members’ anthologies.
