Riddled with error.


My book of poetry and prose and short stories is now available online. 'Riddled with errors' (originally called, Important Nonsense) is a collection of over 69 pieces of untamed poetry, bizzare stories, jaw dropping honesty, and dark science. It's available in the U.K. only and costs £5:o0 post and packaging included. The book is signed and contains a personal note too.

The work contained in here is largely from my formative years; late teens to late twenties. Some from years ago, some from just last year. It's brash, brazen, full of holes that are portals of discovery, full of slap dashery and hyperbolic seriousness. Fit for the young, the old, the dead, and the yet to be born.

Comment and criticism for 'Riddled with errors':

'Feral poetry' - Anon. 'Sincere dross.' - Anon. 'Unusual images fight with intriguing and messy brain matter.' - Jenifer Wills. 'A poet, of and for, the attention deficit disorder.' - Anon. 'Part Glasgow, part psyche map, part rainbow explosion and word finger painting.' - Anon.

Order a copy. Have a read.

Rachel, I think this may be his way of letting us down gently.

McGuire said...

Titus said...

Anyone who promotes the good things about Glesga, its people, culture, and the integrity behind its eclectic history is fine by me.

I've been a follower of your work for quite a while.

McGuire said...

Jimmy - Glad to hear from you. I'm away to read your blog. I'll keep in touch.

Plenty more of Glasgow and other stuff on the way.

:)
