Are Friends Electric?
By Helen Heath
 
Are Friends Electric? offers a vivid and moving vision of a past, present, and future mediated by technology. A series of speculative poems explores questions of how we incorporate technology into our lives and bodies. In these poems on grief, Heath asks how technology can keep us close with those we have lost.

The Moon in a Bowl of Water
By Michael Harlow
 
Bound together by myth and music, this book is a stunning new collection from a poet in complete control of his craft. Here he presents a collection of small human journeys, with a strong emphasis on narrative. Words become ‘thought-birds’ that can be caged, coaxed to sing, or allowed to fly, and the poems’ sonic after-effects echo and re-echo in the reader’s mind and ear.
