Estuary has won the Saboteur Award

On May 29, "Estuary" (the book that was published last year featuring two of my works!) was voted the Best Mixed Anthology for the Saboteur 2013 award in that category. Agnes Marton was in attendance to represent the editorial team at the awards event, which was held at the London Book Club.

... the image of the Lion devouring the Sun refers to an Alchemical symbol for a certain stage in the Great Work called 'Dissolution' and it refers to the 'Black' phase in the process. 
"Psychologically, Dissolution represents a further breaking down of the artificial structures of the psyche by total immersion in the unconscious, the rejected part of our consciousness." see more info here: http://www.azothalchemy.org/azoth_ritual.htm
