Issue: 80 - Jessie Kesson Remembered

Her short play, ‘It was upon a Lammas Nicht’, explores attitudes towards sexuality. Christopher Whyte in ‘Note(s) from the Margin’ looks at sexuality in Scottish literature; in fiction we have ‘An Erotic Story’ from Rosalind Brackenbury and challenging new work from George Pryde, Linda McCann, Sheena Blackhall and Lorne Macintyre. There is poetry from Gordon Meade, Brian Whittingham, Tom Hubbard, Iain Galbraith, Frank Kuppner, Bill Turner and Alastair Mackie translates Giorno Dopo Giorno, Salvatore Quasimodo – and others. One short story, ‘After the First Hard Rain’ by Paul Anderson, developed into a major novel (1300 pages) – Hunger’s Brides and was finally published to critical acclaim after 13 years of work in 2005. 104pp, 1995, ISBN-10: 0-906772-66-4 / ISBN-13: 978-0-906772-66-9 £5.00
