Product Description

POETRY COLLECTION by Robert Holdstock & Garry Kilworth
EDITION  Hardcover

COVER ART  Francois Thisdale
PRINT RUN unsigned

ISBN  978-1-848636-37-8


Rob derived a huge amount of pleasure from writing these poems (and peoms) in the last two or three years of his life.  Some were written purely out of fun and mischievousness, but some had very serious intent (such as The Field of Tartan and The Passing of Alpha). He sent multiple versions to family, friends and acquaintances for feedback and relished the ensuing discussions and chats about them. They undoubtedly provide fascinating insights into the real Rob and are, by turn, profoundly moving, thought-provoking, sad, funny, crazy and wonderful.

As Garry notes in his Introduction, many of Robs poems were as elusive as snow leopards.  I have tried to track down as many as possibleI am sure many more will be lurking in long lost emails and notebooksand I have also tried to second-guess which versions might be definitive but concluded that some were probably works in progress.  Apologies from a celestial Rob for this, and from me for any inaccurate transcriptions!

I should like to thank Garry, Pete and Nicky (and all at PS Publishing) for initiating and producing this handsome volumeand to François for the beautiful cover.  Rob would be absolutely thrilled, as am I.  He would also be exceedingly pleased and proud that his poems are published alongside those by Garry, whose work he admired greatly . . . and who was, and continues to be, a very special friend to us both.
