the only boy on earth
awoke with a joy
as big as the moon
with a cold nose
he crept past embers
to witness
a pillow case
bursting
with a mothers love

The Conspiracy behind the Shropshire Hills Vanishings
Carl Lafferty

9781911175933 A mysterious light appears in the sky over the south Shropshire hills; four teachers from a nearby school inexplicably disappear; a West-Midlands MI5 outpost is closed without notice; its boss - the beautiful Julia Anderson, mysteriously vanishes without trace.
It seems that Julia's former colleague, misogynistic ex-policeman Brian Humphries, is the only person interested in discovering the whole truth. But is Brian quite the person he seems to be? And can he save Julia and expose the conspiracy of silence which surrounds the disappearances before The Service gets to him? Or will his efforts instead be thwarted by Julia’s ex-flatmate, recovered paranoid schizophrenic Peter Williams?
With every twist and turn, the intricacies of this intriguing and darkly humorous thriller take the reader further and further into the murky depths of Peter’s mental illness and MI5’s determination to keep their secret – whatever the collateral damage to those who stand in their way.

A collection of personal poetry illustrated by John Tordoff
Reinhard Tenberg

Poetry soup recipe
Slice half a pound of words into
six abstruse metaphors
and lay in large pan of figurative speech;
pour rhythm stock over the broth
and heat up gently,
but don’t hyperbole
cook on low heat until all the
ingredients make your heart leap up
like a rainbow in the sky.

Bleddfa Centre

Bleddfa-Centre-Small

‘You’ve Written a Book, Now What? Routes to Publication: an Information Day’ was a day-long workshop held at the Bleddfa Centre in Powis on Sunday 22 October. It was chaired by Caroline Sanderson, writer and associate editor of the Bookseller. Around forty writers attended and there was a series of talks and discussions by published authors, publishers, a literary agent and from YouCaxton, represented by Bob Fowke our editor. It was a very productive day and especially interesting in that it spanned the gap between traditional trade publishing, independent publishing and self-publishing. Bleddfa will be holding more workshops in the future.

A journey through Jewish Peoplehood
Avraham Infeld

New-6 Avraham Infeld’s book takes the reader on a journey through Jewish Peoplehood, that powerful yet intangible idea that connects Jews together, no matter where they live or how they practice. Starting with the core components of Peoplehood, and ending with his ideas about the future of the Jewish People, the book contains powerful messages about how to achieve unity without uniformity in today’s global world. Through his trademark stories and accessible messages, Infeld offers Jewish leaders and educators – indeed any interested Jew – the opportunity to engage with ideas that can change the Jewish world.

Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks
An engaging and inspiring set of reflections by one of the master educators of today’s Jewish world – full of delightful stories, compelling analysis and generosity of spirit. Read it and your faith in the Jewish future will be renewed.

Leon Wieseltier
The intensity of Avraham Infeld’s commitment to his people is matched by its intelligence and its generosity. There are stimulations on every page of this candid and ebullient book. Infeld’s soulful monument to ahavat yisrael demonstrates by example that love is best when it is not blind. I am honored to share a people with this man.

Lynn Schusterman
Avraham Infeld is a giant among giants whose philosophy and teachings will shape Jewish life and learning for generations to come. I have seen firsthand how scores of young Jews have found in his personal story and in his vision a Jewish future that speaks directly to their passions and values. This book is a beautiful distillation of his life’s work to ensure the centrality of Israel, tikkun olam and pluralism to the narrative of the Jewish people. It could not come at a more crucial time, given the cultural, demographic and geopolitical shifts we are experiencing in the Jewish community, in Israel and in society more broadly.

An imagined early life of Jesus by the former dean of Salisbury Cathedral
Hugh Dickinson

9781911175834 The most profound mystery of Christian theism is the affirmation that the man Jesus of Nazareth was also Divine. Exactly what that means has been a matter of constant debate for two millennia. Christian theologians have made use of a great variety of physical analogies and metaphysical concepts in the attempt to give a rational account of this belief, but the metaphysical algebra no longer has much traction for most people and divinity is not within the reach of materialist rationality. In order to emphasise the presence of the exceptional in him it has been natural to give greater narrative weight to the Divinity of Jesus of Nazareth than to his humanity, which has effectively been shrouded in the glow of the Divine The purpose of this brief essay in imagination is the belief that unless we grasp the biological earthiness of Jesus we cannot fully understand his the Incarnation.
