    The Magicians Of Scotland
    Ron Butlin - Paperback - Polygon
    Just as 'The Magicians of Edinburgh' themes ranged from Sir Walter Scott to the new Parliament, from Greyfriar's Bobby to the trams, the themes of the collection include Scotland's past, present and future, its landscape and people, its myths and politics - from Bannockburn, Flodden to Faslane, the Loch Ness Monster, wind farms, Hutton to Higgs, Bonnie Prince Charlie to Donald Trump.

    Cairn
    Richie McCaffery - Paperback - Nine Arches
    Richie McCaffrey's debut collection of poems begins in a dedication and ends with ghosts - in between lies hoards of artefacts and long-forgotten antiques; a police whistle, a tarnished silver spoon, the bookmark lodged in a boring book decades before that sings of a lost age.

    One Day In The Life Of Jimmy Denisovich

    Dry Stone
    Brian Johnstone - Paperback - Arc Publications
    As well as the deep lineage of rural landscapes that populated previous collections, here Brian Johnstone treats us to an extended trip to the circus, where the glitz and thrill of the big top and its stunts are peeled back to allow us into physical and emotional rigour that forms the show's scaffold.

    Tree Language
    Marion McCready - Hardback - Eyewear Publishing
    'Tree Language' is told in shard-like poems of supreme richness and finely balanced darkness - variously shaped, whittled to a point, almost sharp enough to draw blood. And although this is a book spiked with brambles and skeletal branches, shot through with frost and fossilled with plant-bones, blood is the slick thread that sews together its themes and landscapes.
