Two years makes it a tradition! This year’s ghost story for Christmas Eve is 'The Toll House' by W. W. Jacobs.
Last year's ghost story
I recently had the pleasure of reviewing these three excellent pamphlets for Poetry Wales. The full review is in the Summer 2017 issue, out now.
I bought this book for my late grandfather when I was a teenager, and he gave me chapter-by-chapter updates while he was reading it. I've loved reading the same copy all these years later.
Ashamed to say I've never read Ariel, despite owning a copy for over a decade. Using my lunch hours this week to put that right.
From Book of Longing by Leonard Cohen (Penguin, 2007)
Essential reading tonight for our annual Halloween marathon. Finally watching Tod Browning's Freaks, then a couple of old favourites 🎃🎥
From Another Country: Haiku Poetry from Wales edited by Nigel Jenkins, Ken Jones and Lynne Rees (Gomer, 2011)
Not everyone is interested in Swansea City's Greatest Games.
The result of some recent late-night eBay bidding. Still as good as when Dan Lee lent me his copy a couple of years ago.
