Comments & Further Information

A first UK limited edition hardback (limited to 460 copies).  Published without a dust jacket.  Beautiful front boards.  Unread.  Edited by Mark Beech.

SYNOPSIS:  “Egaeus Press’s long-awaited collection of strange, dark and hallucinatory stories and poems on the theme of birds.

Herein, and alongside the more or less familiar, feathered avian varieties, you will find creatures of pure myth, impossibilities; birds reimagined, reconstructed; birds as symbols and metaphors for all that is both irreconcilably fascinating and alien to humanity.

The book comprises a total of 27 stories and poems, including, amongst other gems, a previously unpublished story by the late and sadly missed Ron Weighell.

The stories are:  *Oystercatcher – Martin Ruf;  *Aberration & Essence – Charles Wilkinson;  *Ravenbaby – Die Booth;  *Chattering Pies – Henry Everett;  *The Spirit Plate – Sara Rich;  *Being A True Account of The Death & Burial of Poor Cock Robin – William Curnow;  *My Love Will Shine from Depths Unknown – John Llewellyn Probert;  *The Sin-Eaters – Suzanne J. Willis;  *Pretty Bird – Florence Sunnen;  *Chanticleer & The Peacock – Rose Biggin;  *Huitzilopochtli – Lorraine Schein;  *Oileán na nÉan – Albert Power;  *The Jingwei Bird Filling Up The Eastern Sea – Ngo Binh Anh Khoa;  *The Hunger – Romy Wenzel;  *Leather Cormorant – Richard Gavin;  *Doctor Cuckoo – Douglas Thompson;  *The Dread Machinery – Martin Jones;  *The Owl is Called Mother – Rebecca Lloyd;  *My Avian Daughter Devours Meteors – Alicia Hilton;  *The Embassy at Fontainebleau – Damian Murphy;  *Eyes Like Small Black Stones – David Surface;  *Soul Catcher – Ron Jon;  *The Songbird of Medina – Karim Ghahwagi;  *Flight – David Yates;  *Calling – Ruhul Amin;  *Spirits of the Dead – Ron Weighell.”
