A new edition of Nicholas Murray's


Of earth, water, air and fire


has just been published by Melos Press.



Christopher Reid wrote that it is

'a real treat... an elemental menagerie in which the poet's own delight through verbal magic becomes ours.'

We are very pleased to be publishing Ian Harrow's latest collection of poems, THE QUIET LIFE.

Ian Harrow’s poems of obsessive love and lost love
are strange, stark, profound parables in brief classic
forms. They are not consolatory, but neither are
they pessimistic, because they have what one of the
poems calls ‘the taste of truth’. When they are
painful, it is because reality is painful.”
Bernard O’Donoghue


The book will be launched on March 27th, but it is available now, post free. (See link, Buy Now, opposite.)

Black and Blue 

We first published Cathy Galvin's collection in 2014. The first edition sold out rapidly and we are now publishing a new and revised edition.


Praise for Black and Blue:

David Morley: Cathy Galvin's sequence moves brilliantly...with drama, immediacy and power.

David Almond: ...wonderful. So beautiful and moving: family, grief, childhood, angels, birds...The impulse to make sense of our heritage and our childhoods, to turn our family stories into things of beauty. Black and Blue is a gorgeous, sacramental thing.

GRADUAL is the second collection by poet and critic Andrew McCulloch. At its heart are translations of six Holy Sonnets, based on verses from the psalms and attributed to Jean Racine. Other, original poems in the collection celebrate another gathering holiness - that of the heart's affection.

'These beautiful translations of the 'Holy Sonnets, awe-filled and rapturous, command an easy, natural flow which finds its own counterpart in McCulloch's own poems: both voices are demotic, musical and full of wonder.' Rachel Nadar.

PUBLISHED ON NOVEMBER 17th and available now, post free.
