Herbert, Gerry Cambridge, Claire Trevien, Chrissy Williams, John McCullough, Moniza Alvi, Sarah Hesketh, Peter Daniels, Vahni Capildeo, Lorraine Mariner, Christopher Reid, Antony Rowland, Hannah Lowe … I could go on.
If you separate out the words of the title, it sounds just like the thump and rumble of an approaching theropod. HELL. CREEK. ANTHOLOGY. Run for cover!Hell Creek
, our latest team-up book, is out today and can be bought from us directly
. Poet J.T. Welsch and illustrator Dom & Ink have teamed up to deliver a winning pastiche of Edgar Lee Masters’ famous Spoon River Anthology

The first launch reading for the book will be taking place this coming Monday, 12 October, from 7pm at the De Gray Lecture Theatre at York St John University. It’s a double launch with Naomi Booth’s The Lost Art of Sinking
and is free, but ticketed. Further details here
It’s National Poetry Day, and the theme this year is ‘Light’. To celebrate, Dr Fulminare has resurrected five ex-Poet Laureates, and we’ve commissioned them, along with a raft of still-living Sidekick poets, to contribute to a new, free, downloadable pdf anthology, ‘Blackout Poems’
The poems are all written in the traditional ‘blackout’ style, which simulates reading in the dark. With iridescent page numbers.
