Review: The Edinburgh Book of Twentieth Century Scottish Poetry [Scotland]:
It is to the editors' credit that so many of the poems have been sourced from small, independent presses, such as Akros and Diehard, and from literary magazines. There is, however, one striking example of seeming bad faith. The volume contains two hitherto unpublished poems: one by Mr Lindsay and one by Ms Duncan. Was the opportunity to include unpublished material extended to all the living authors, or was it a "reserved power" for the editors?

I think they should be congratulated on not sticking to the perceived elite and recognising neglected talent- like me for instance.

I'm glad you two are reading.

I take your point about Lesley Duncan taking the opportunity to put two poems in. Maurice Lindsay would have been in any anthology but you suspect she's only in it cos she's co-edited it. I don't think she's ever published anywhere except occasionally in the daily Poem slot in the 'Herald' which she edits also.
