Plot and Counterplot, my own second collection, is in the HappenStance shop. You can buy it from here via PayPal, or by post, or go to the Shoestring Press website and purchase using their downloadable form. One of the poems inside is also available as a PoemCard.

The launch of this Shoestring Press volume is at the Scottish Poetry Library on Saturday 20th November, 3.00 for 3.30. John Lucas, Shoestring Publisher, will be there, and he'll also be doing the Scottish launch of two books of his own, both published by Five Leaves.

If you're in Edinburgh, do come. Not only will Ross Bradshaw (Five Leaves Publisher) be there in person, but it's not all poetry. One of John's books is Next Year Will Be Better, A Memoir of Life in the Fifties. So if you're old enough to remember life back then, or even if you're not . . .
