Richard Britton (The Birth of Taliesin the Bard / Words From The Sky) has launched a new online publisher, Icarus Books (www.icarusbooks.co.uk), specialising in narrative poetry. Submissions are open now – visit the website for details. Very exciting!

Finally, Lochlan Bloom (Ambi and Anspi) has a new novel, The Wave, due to be published soon by Dead Ink Books. I’ve had the pleasure of reading the novel, and I can confirm it’s a truly original piece of work.
