"Seven bums and fourteen legs,
a brazen ecstasy which begs
the question some of us are asking -
is Peter Goulding multi-tasking?"

Revival # 21

The latest edition of Revival arrived among the Christmas post last week and I've barely had time to skim through it, never mind write about it. That is a pleasure to savour when I'm Willy Wonka'd out approaching New Year.
As usual, its a delightful mix of, mainly, poetry, prose and a review and, as seems to be the trend these days, featuring not many names I've come across - an indication surely of plenty of new blood coming through. I see Louise Phillips is in there with a prose piece - either she has a brilliant imagination or a very interesting past! And Noel Harrington, whom I met at the WOW awards this year - well, I never had him down as an old headbanger! And the quite brilliant and prolific Richard W Halperin treats us to another of his finely chiselled masterpieces.
Some old masters in there too - Eamonn Lynskey, Noel King, Knute Skinner, John Pinschmidt, Greagoir O'Duill and John Liddy, which all makes for a great read.
Oh and I have a poem in there too.


  1. Well done Peter! How did your poem manage to slip in???

  2. Dear Peter: Excellent review, very professional which does pique my interest in the writers of "ReViVal", I really want to delve now! Merry Christmas across the pond and Happy New Year 2012. Where my a pick up a copy in Canada. (I dont mean it THAT way!)
