Here Come the Trolls Paperback edition by Ron Butlin
Ron Butlin is an award-winning poet, playwright, novelist, short story writer and librettist whose works have been translated into many languages. He regularly gives creative writing workshops in schools, and was Edinburgh Makar from 2008 to 2014. James Hutcheson is Creative Director at Birlinn. He has been designing books, book jackets and album covers for many years.
Set mostly in the early 1950s, this is a highly fictionalised account of an unmarried woman's struggle with her family and with society at large during her pregnancy and the years following. This was unforgiving, post-war Britain. The novel is a tribute to her courage, her strength and determination.
In a fast-paced narrative spiced with genuine wit, this novel describes the billionaires' banquet going on around us daily in contemporary Britain - who feasts and who pays the bill. Intriguing, disturbing and hugely entertaining, Billionaires' Banquet is an immorality tale for the 21st century.
Blasting into the future, across alien worlds and distant galaxies, fantastic technologies and potential threats to humanity, Where Rockets Burn Through brings science fiction and poetry together in one explosive, genre-busting collection.
This new take on trolls is written by a master poet and will appeal to children aged 3-7 with its funny and imaginative rhymes. The inventive poetry is complemented throughout with full-colour illustrations which bring the naughty, adventurous trolls to life
The Magicians of Scotland will build upon the success of The Magicians of Edinburgh (reprinted five times) and on that book's critical acclaim. Ron Butlin is the Edinburgh Makar and this collection will have an Edinburgh emphasis while seeking to celebrate and interrogate Scotland and its people at a crucial turning point in our country's history.
Many of the poets who spring to mind when we think of German poetry in English translation are Austrians - at least 'by formation'. This work collects work by several of these, placing them in the company of some of their Austrian contemporaries, all of whom deserve to be better known in English than they are.
