Voices from Fairyland: The Fantastical Poems of Mary Coleridge, Charlotte Mew, and Sylvia Townsend Warner, Aqueduct Press, 2008. Although this volume includes poetry by Coleridge, Mew, and Townsend, as well as essays on each of those poets, it also includes a number of my own poems.

Brian Blyth Daubney has composed music for seven of my poems: “Autumn, the Fool,” “Echo and Narcissus,” “The Frost,” “Helen in Sparta,” “Goblin Song,” “The Singer,” and “Dirge for a Lady.” The poems are included on his CD October Roses, which is available from the British Music Society.
