Richard Caddel's "Magpie Words: Selected Poems 1970-2000" (reviewed here) was published by West House Books in 2002. He was a co-editor (with Peter Quartermain) of the anthology "Other: British and Irish Poetry since 1970" (Wesleyan 1999), and Associate Editor of Basil Bunting's "Complete Poems" (Bloodaxe 2000). These three poems are part of a longer sequence, "Writing In The Dark"; West House will publish the entire sequence in book form in September. A memorial anthology, edited by Peter Quartermain, appeared in Jacket.
