Looking at the preparations for today’s Remembrance Day Commemorations earlier and having spent yesterday buried in a copy of Martin Malone’s ‘The Unreturning’ – which incidentally, is a quite brilliant collection of poetry that genuinely answers the question of whether a modern writer can bring something new to war poetry – I couldn’t help but think that I should re-share the Stickleback we put out last year, ‘Other People’s Freedoms.’
You can download your copy of ‘Other People’s Freedoms’ below,
So many competition questions answered (and congratulations to all who made the podium.)
Books available direct from the poets all signed and dedicated – something I’m really proud of, although I have had to give-up on the ‘Get it from a Poet’ campaign slogan as apparently nobody wants to wear that T-shirt.
All of which makes me think that we have come a long way in the last couple of years, and indeed the 18 months since we managed to release our first wee book, The Road To Clevedon Pier.
So it seemed a good time to share that special book with you all today.

It has been a bit of a mad old week around here, lots of plotting and planning, and even a few announcements for collections that will come out in 2020.
And I am really rather chuffed to say that this week’s Free Stickleback for you to lovingly download, is Lady Gaynor Kane’s brilliant nod toward some very brave ladies.
We are of course publishing Gaynor’s debut collection, Memory Forest (not Frost as the odd Muppet has called it) in the near future, so this gives a wee taste of the quality of her writing before you get a chance to delve deeper.
But you probably knew that.
What you won’t have known is that I am really rather ecstatic to be able to announce that we will also be publishing Gaynor’s debut paperback, full collection in 2020.
So that is a Stickleback, a pamphlet and a book – the holiest of trinities and henceforth to be known as Kane’s Hat-trick
(ahem, long week, sorry.)
But getting back to the Stickleback, you can download your copy, by simply clicking on the download link below:
Well, it may be getting a wee bit darker of an evening, but we seem to be stretching our Friday Night Freebies a bit longer and I’m really pleased that this week it is something a little special from Debjani Chatterjee.
As it happens, Debjani will be the first person to have two Sticklebacks after winning a poll of our Cult members earlier this year, but you’ll have to wait a while for that one.
