Left dead after our cultures were broken by triumphant enemies, our stories changed to suit others. We now change them again to suit ourselves. Songs and Stories of the Ghouls purports to give power to the dead—voices to the victims of genocide both ancient and contemporary—and presence to women. Medea did not kill her sons; Dido founds a city, over and over again, the city of the present author’s poetry. In these poems the poet asserts that though her art comes from a tradition as broken as Afghanistan’s statuary, there is always a culture to pass on to one’s children, and one is always involved in doing so. We are the ghouls, the drinkers of the blood-sacs, and we insist that we are alive.

The ancient land of Cornwall is steeped in mysterious tradition, proud heritage and age-old folklore. Before books were widely available, wandering 'droll tellers' used to spread Cornish insight and humour to all parts of the Duchy - exchanging their tales for food and shelter. Anthony James was one such droll teller, and this collection follows him as he makes his way around Cornwall one glorious summer. Richly illustrated with hand-drawn images and woodcuts, Cornish Folk Tales will appeal to anyone captivated by this beautiful land and its resident kindly giants, mischievous piskeys, seductive mermaids, bold knights and barnacle-encrusted sea captains. Mike O'Connor is a powerful and engaging storyteller who performs at many events across the country. An important researcher into Cornish music and folklore, he has been awarded the OBE and made a bard of the Gorsedh of Kernow.

Shortlisted for the Whitbread Award: “this bleak tale” of a month in the life of a family struggling with addiction “is a work of considerable force” (The Scotsman, UK). Punchy, sharp-witted and acutely observed, Born Free tells the story of an ordinary family living in Edinburgh, Scotland, and dealing with their troubles in an all-too ordinary way: each member is trying to escape life—and each other—through his or her drug of choice, whether it’s alcohol, sex, Prozac, or the Internet. The interactions between parents Angie and Vic, and their teenage children Jake and Joni, reveal a hellish cocktail of mid-life crises and adolescent angst; the savagery of sibling rivalry; the waking nightmare of a marriage gone cold—and the unbridgeable, infernal chasm between the generations. It’s a story of everyday life. Shortlisted for the Whitbread First Novel Award Nominated for the Orange Prize “One of Scotland’s most talented writers.”—Daily Telegraph, UK
