Property developers should not be lulled into a false sense of security when subcontracting with construction companies that are registered as home builders in terms of the Housing Consumers Protection Measures Act (95 of 1998). In light of the Constitutional Court's recent finding in the case of Cool Ideas 1186 CC v Hubbard and Another 2014 (4) SA 474 (CC), both property developers and the construction companies with whom they subcontract, have to be duly registeredas home builders in terms of the Act, prior to the commencement of construction.

This, and the various other well-known wine farms in this area, such as Ken Forrester - one of the first great Chenin Blanc producers, makes Stellenbosch the gourmet capital of South Africa.

The first and only time I met Andrew Brown was at the Fugard Theatre when we were both guests on a panel at the Cape Town Book Festival last year. I found him to be a very thoughtful man with an intelligently assured manner - and the same descriptors apply to Devil's Harvest. I've read three of Andrew's other books, Cold Sleep Lullaby, Refuge and Solace. Devil's Harvest is different and it's not just in the title's overt suggestion of something darkly powerful and malevolent.

When I was a little girl, my father - a well-known artist - took it into his head that maybe I had a talent for cartooning. He invited his friend Dov Fedler around to have a look at my drawings and see what he thought. Dov was kind, and admired my attempts. He suggested that I work on closing my lines (not leaving gaps where one line meets another) and said, "Here, I'll show you what I mean." As I watched Dov draw, I knew that whatever talent I had was miniscule in relation to Dov's. I didn't put away my pencil but thereafter I wielded it with a healthy respect for real cartoonists.
