National Poetry Day – did you miss it?

28 September is designated National Poetry Day – at least in the UK. At TSL, we don’t see one day as a special day – all days are special, so below are the our authors who also write poetry. TSL doesn’t specalise in poetry but we do have some poetry either as part of a collection or to support a charity.

Playwright and author Barbara Towell has a book of poetry Patchworks.
Kat Francois and Robbie Cheadle also publish poetry, albeit not through TSL.

Time travel

I can’t say time-travel is one of my favourite things although I do sometimes think it would be wonderful to ‘beam me up, Scottie’ to get to another country rather than go through all the hassle of airports and sitting on a plane for many hours. Recently, I’ve had a few encounters with time travel in novels. What seems to be trend for time-travellers is that their clothes are behind the times and the give-away.

In The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, Henry keeps arriving in new time zones naked. The reason given for this is so that his clothes do not give him away. He needs to find attire for the time he’s visiting.

Nick Horgan has Memories of Time Travel in his collection of short stories by that name, while in The Land of Counterpane, Tricia Price takes young readers back in time with some historical fiction, similarly young Christopher Crown travels back in time to join Nelson’s navy.
Other TSL authors who deal with changes in time and space are John Samson in Reading Lady Chatterley in Africa and The Fall of the Romance Empire, Gideon Masters in the Lucifer’s Child trilogy, Robbie Cheadle in Through the Nethergate and Beatrice Holloway in Elusive Destiny.
