Epigraph
For them the bitings of grasshopers and flies killed, neither was there found any remedy for their life: for they were worthy to be punished by such.

But thy sons not the very teeth of venomous dragons overcame: for thy mercy was over by them, and healed them.

For they were pricked, that they should remember thy words.

Wisdom of Solomon, 16:9–11, Apocrypha
'...it was related that the party of explorers, at the extremity of their strength, had the constant delusion that there was one more member than could actually be counted.'

T. S. Eliot, referring to

Shackleton's Antarctic expedition

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"A newcomer has arrived in a small Welsh seaside town - a one-armed Liverpudlian. Seeking to rebuild his life, if not his body, he is attempting to lead a life here unlike any life he's lived before: a normal one - shopping, gardening, signing on, visiting friends, all the usual diurnal activities." "Over a hundred miles to the north, however, two men in shellsuits are leaving Liverpool, heading south in a rickety old car. They have been sent by their gang-boss to wreak terrible, violent revenge, but have only a rough idea of their quarry: a one-armed man, maybe living somewhere in west Wales, in a small town by the sea."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
