Overview

The prize winning poem Into the Walled Garden first appeared in an anthology called Dress of Nettles, published by Ragged Raven Press.

Writing in Cold Mountain Review in 2005, J D Ballam wrote:

…...If there is a single theme dominating the book, and it is certainly not ever-present, then it is of one of reminiscence.

…there is…almost always a sense of pleasure in the telling of a tale…however painful the recollection of the circumstances contained in that tale may be.

…it is a situation frequently repeated in Dress of Nettles, yet its unending diversity, its self-generating pace, keep it from ever becoming cloying or repetitive. Compare, for instance, the sensitivity of Clive Gilson's evocative Into the Walled Garden, which explores the loneliness of old age through the endless tasks of a gardener (with) Pat Earnshaw's poignant reworking of childhood's limited understanding of pride and frustrated dreams in In My Next Life I'll Have a Big House and Dogs and Music.

This book contains poetry, short stories and reviews…10 years worth of work both published and unpublished, collected together for the very first time (warts and all).

The pieces in this anthology are written very much on a human scale, with values and attainments shared in appreciation of the wider community.

Meet the Author

I've been writing since age 11 and had various shorts and pieces of poetry published over the years. I started writing longer fiction a few years ago. You can check out video's of many of my stories for free at:

I have some experience in the industry generally, having worked as a journalist and contributor to various magazines and newspapers, although I'm concentrating on fiction right now.

I'm looking forward to getting new work up for you all in the coming months and hopefully we'll get chance to share work, comments, feedback and all that good stuff...

Cheers for now,

Clive
