A Sunken Treasure - Ship-reX by Shug Hanlan

Written by
Hard to imagine that there was a time when Shug Hanlan was mentioned in the same breath as fellow Scottish authors Irvine Welsh, Ali Smith and Alan Warner (all featured in the same 1997 anthology, “Ahead of Its Time”).

Seven Day Fool – Jason Disley Reviewed

Written by

I was instantly engaged, as his words were soulful and moved like jazz music, a real modern day Beat poet as legend Allen Ginsberg.
