Routemasters and Mushrooms Published by Earlyworks Press ISBN 0-9553429-0-2
This anthology is headed by Madonna Della Febbre by Nigel Humphreys, winner of the first Earlyworks Press Open Poetry Competition.
"Earlyworks Press is off to a good start with their first anthology an intriguing title, and some excellent and varied poems from such well-known names as Roger Elkin. Phil Fox for instance, serves up a sensuous dish About Tarts whilst Duncan Frasers speciality is the wry humour of High Rising Terminal. More poignant notes are struck by Sally Richards in Institutional, Angela Rigby, describing Last Rites and Jane Moretons evocative Coach Journey: Half-Light."
Carole Baldock, Editor of Orbis.
"An interesting mix of very good poetry. The Routemaster might be decommissioned, but its proven an unexpected source of inspiration for just one poem in a compilation that ranges from the reassuringly familiar to the cosmic in scope. Not a single bland, run-of-the-mill poem in the mix."
DJ Tyrer, Atlantean Publishing
