Thaliad review online

So glad to see that the Moira Richards review of Thaliad from the Cape Times has been reprinted on Not now, darling... I'm reading. Here's a clip:
One hundred pages of mesmerising iambic pentameter surge and swell, plunge and soar the journeying through the children’s grief and the rotting remains of what was our civilisation until at last (very) few of the seven triumph over danger and lingering evil and grow into adulthood to parent a new, post-apocalyptic future for humankind... Blank verse on grand scale, heroic imagery... 
See the whole thing here. And right below is a review of friend Lesley Wheeler's latest book!


Cover and interior art for both books by artist Clive Hicks-Jenkins of Wales. Design of Glimmerglass for Mercer by Mary-Frances Glover Burt. Design of Thaliad for Phoenicia by Elizabeth Adams. See tabs above for more information.

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
