Musicolepsy

Musicolepsy - new poetry collection

In case members of the BSLS were interested, I thought I'd let you know about this: my poetry collection, Musicolepsy, from which I read excerpts at the recent BSLS Conference 2013 in Cardiff, has now been published by Shoestring Press in Nottingham.

The book features poems on cosmological, neurological and musical themes and images, and includes a series of poems written for (and first published by) NASA Chandra X-Ray Observatory. There are also poems about Johannes Kepler's "Mysterium Cosmographicum," the Supernova of 1054, the sound made by black holes, thermodynamic equilibrium, and, of course, New Brighton. You can see more details, and read a sample here:
