A truly inspiring and often dark collection of short stories from the award winning writer, Lynda E Tavakoli, ranging widely in atmosphere and place but always linked by a common thread - that of human frailty, which the author is unafraid to take on. These stories often offer insight into the hidden sides of the human condition as ordinary lives belie an underbelly of deception and immorality. A number of these stories have been published in anthologies and broadcast on BBC radio. Lynda E Tavakoli facilitates adult writing classes and is the author of two highly acclaimed novels – Attachment and Of Broken Things - and has won several awards for her poetry and prose.

Sensitive, compelling treatment of a tragic life. The poet zooms in intimately, strongly conveys childhood, its apartness from the comprehensions of the adult world, the pain of the passage of time, rather than its healing quality, but energy is retained throughout, and there's no descent into sentimentality. “Laconic, sharp, brutal and unsentimental, with an occasionally shocking sense of realism.” Julian Stannard - The Poetry Society.

GLOBE BATHED IN HORROR - A Collection of Dark Poetry
Globe Bathed in Horror is the first English language collection by author and poet Norbert Gora. Herein lies horrors both real and imagined, as Gora lends his poetic genuis to the sorrowful howls of the ghosts of the Athens Lunatic Asylum; the headless dead that haunt the beaches of Chiangi, Singapore; Aokigahara the forest of suicides that lies at the base of Mt. Fufi in Japan; the Scandinavian legend of the Hulder, a beautiful woman with a cow's tail, and the ghastly speculations of H.P. Lovecraft and Stefan Grabinski about the true value of humanity in the cosmic scheme. Somber, elegant and chilling, these poems reach forward towards a brighter future while memorializing the darkness of the past. CLICK HERE to read an interview with Norbert.

TO SING AWAY THE DARKEST DAYS: Poems Re-imagined from Yiddish Folksongs
By Norbert Hirschhorn - contributor to WAR.
ISBN : 978-1907320354
To Sing Away the Darkest Days is the culmination of a five-year project which saw Norbert Hirschhorn source more than one thousand Yiddish songs from several archives and from collections on the Internet, as well as from CDs. For Norbert they helped him to rediscover and trace his own Jewish cultural history. However, some of the songs 'spoke' to him as a poet and begged for a new translation, or 're-imagining' as he calls it, into English poems. The resulting collection of poems tells the story of the emigrant, the Jew in the Diaspora. Norbert adds his unique view: he personalises the Diaspora, and at the same time brings a vanished culture back to life. The collection is funny and poignant and captures the Jewish experience, but the struggle and questioning of the poet add an extra dimension. To Sing Away the Darkest Days is not only a wonderful collection of poems but also a unique historical document. Click on the below link for further details about Norbert's book, and to buy a copy.

STONE. BREAD. SALT
by Norbert Hirschhorn - contributor to WAR.
Abridged... In this very personal collection of poems Norbert Hirschhorn takes stock of his life and gives voice to his quest to pass on the experiences of the generations before him. Or in the author's own words: “Over the past decades I have lived and worked in the Middle East, coming to a greater understanding not only of Judaism, but also the other Abrahamic religions. As I approach my ninth decade of life I am aware of the need to share with my descendants the wisdom, texts and lessons handed down by our ancestors of all religions. The poems in this collection reflect this aim and necessity.” As the title suggest Stone. Bread. Salt. combines seriousness with playfulness.
