The Arrow Maker

D. M. Black

The Arrow Maker

D.M. Black's sensitive attention to emotional states of mind, sometimes his own, sometimes those of others, also extends to more public themes of war and climate change.

Julia Darling

Indelible, Miraculous

This collected edition commemorates the 10th anniversary of Julia Darling's death, and includes a substantial selection of unpublished work.

Smithereens

Tariq Latif

Smithereens

Evocative, spiritual poems from a Pakistan-born poet living and working in the Scottish Highlands. Tariq Latif's work captures the moments of beauty, alienation, distance and intimacy he finds in the wilderness and remote towns of a region so often associated with emptiness, but which the poet shows us is rich with vivid life.
