Memoir of the Editor of the Press. “A study of faith and destiny” – John Miller.  Full of poems as well. Illustrated by Margaret Stein. Also commended by Irene Howat, James Robertson and Catherine Simpson.  https://buy.sanctusmedia.com/store/collections/handsel-press-store at £10.

SWIFT, our latest Poetry Booklet, by Jock Stein. The author is a poet, piper and preacher from East Lothian, and currently convener of Tyne and Esk Writers. In contrast to his first book of poems, which touched on politics and economics, these poems are about gardens, mountains and travel. Russell Jones enthuses:

“Jock Stein’s poems gleefully build their own music, whispering melodies as you explore woodlands and mountains, trains and traffic jams . . .”

LAST DOCTOR OUT OF BIAFRA, edited by Joanna and Will Storrar. It contains the journal notes of Dr Ann Jackson, who was the last doctor to fly out of Biafra after serving there throughout the terrible Nigerian Civil War. It is a very moving documentary of tragedy, and testimony of service from a retired missionary now 80 years old – a story that has never been told before, since all the reporters waiting for her at Heathrow Airport on her return in 1970 did not recognise the demure woman in a summer dress who slipped through and off to Glasgow.
