Pauline Rowe’s Ghost Hospital is a remarkable book! – Deryn Rees-Jones

Keepsake is a debut collection of poetry by Kayleigh Campbell, and what a treat it is. Although the poems’ subjects are on the edge (of life, land, and sanity), the effective is far from liminal. There is a freshness, clarity and purpose to Campbell’s writing that makes shards of glass glitter in spring’s sun.

– Michael Stewart (author of the best selling novel Ill Will)

‘A glance at the contents list – a Neocleous poem in itself – puts you immediately in Katerina’s ambiguous world: is this everyday reality? Yes – but a real world on which this poet’s magic touch confers so many extra dimensions: bluebell woods, cherry blossom and crows are here immediately as themselves, yet sit alongside and bleed into alchemy, necromancy and a grimoire. Once read, these poems of desire and regret, like Katerina’s Burr itself, will be snagged fast for weeks in your mind. What glorious words! What tear-washed colour! What compelling music!’

– Charles Johnson (Editor at Obsessed with Pipework)
