A note from Nicholas Murray about some Rack Press titles:

The Welsh poetry pamphlet imprint, Rack Press, which was relaunched in January 2006, with pamphlets by John Barnie, Richard Price, and Nicholas Murray, issued three new pamphlet titles earlier this year which are selling well*. These are Eight by Five, epigrams from Peter Dale; Clockwork Scorpion, an excellent first collection from Hazel Frew, and Inconsequences a sequence by Dai Vaughan who is perhaps better known for his innovative fiction. There are still a few copies left and pamphlets can be ordered from

*"selling well" in the British poetry market means that a tiny print-run is not being left on the publisher's hands!

    David Wheatley reviews Richard Price's "Lute Variations" pamphlet from Rack Press in today's TLS which, together with two earlier reviews in The Guardian of other Rack Press pamphlets shows that small press poetry is not completely ignored in the present climate of minimal poetry reviewing.
