As I have just mentioned Anthony Rudolf's Menard Press (with reference to Geoffrey Squires and his XXI Poems), I should say a little more about this fab little publisher.

Menard have recently released WG Shepherd's Mother's Milk (a very decent collection that I'll review here soon enough). I was very kindly invited to the book's launch but, sadly, this had to be cancelled because the author is unwell (get better soon Bill!) The invite, however, brought Menard Press to my attention and made me take a look at their titles. I was particularly interested to see Anthony Rudolf's own Engraved in Flesh: Piotr Rawicz and his Novel Blood from the Sky. Piotr Rawicz is an almost entirely forgotten figure (although this novel, Blood from the Sky was republished a couple of years back by Elliott & Thompson) and I wanted to know more. Very happily, Anthony is allowing me to reprint his fine Afterword to Blood from the Sky here on RSB. So, very soon, you'll all know who Piotr Rawicz is!
