Apologies if you tried and failed to access this blog or the Reality Street site on 18-19 August. We were offline for a couple of days. The website host, Yola, had apparently been subjected to a hacker attack, and for one heartstopping instant when I read the emergency announcement I thought we might have lost both the Reality Street and Moors sites. However, a small techno-tweak happily restored business as usual eventually.

Meanwhile, let me take this opportunity to remind you that the Reality Street Summer Sale will shortly be entering its final week - your last chance to grab some fine poetry at knock-down prices!
