A Fountain Stirred

A Fountain Stirred
by Brian G. Davies

Poetry
Some of these poems reflect darker and sadder aspects of life as we experience it. Such feelings are given prominence in 'Goodbye My Friend', 'I Shall Not Return', and 'Centre of My Universe', whilst 'My Light, My World' was indeed occasioned by the recent passing of the author's beloved wife and soulmate. But this feeling is tempered by the anticipatory themes of 'Exodus' and 'Awakening' whilst the theme of love, in its various forms, is also recorded.

Farraway

Farraway
by Steve McAuliffe

Fantasy
As far as Nicholas Farraway is concerned, his first year and a bit of death has been a distinct disappointment; as is Heaven itself. He has so many questions: such as why are angels so arrogant; Why are there no children; and why does he work in surveillance if G-d is supposedly all-seeing?

Million Miles Away

Million Miles Away
by Swaroop Acharjee

But they do so with a unique voice, both Indian and modern, creating a blend that is manifestly different from poetry in Europe and the Americas. Beautifully illustrated with photographs by Sanuj Goswami.

Winter Leaves

The thoughts that make up this book are also similar leaves hanging on after the Autumn - seeds of mentation left behind long after he mind has been beaten to numbness... Words that do not want to wither away despite all efforts to erase them.
