What's New?
On the Benybont Site at January 2017
As from 2016 this site has been updated bi-monthly
Yes, all right. We get the point.

New stuff on this web site.

The purpose of this page is quite straightforward - to draw attention to the newest seven or eight additions or revisions to this web site. By that I mean the major additions or revisions. Not the tweaks and fiddlings about that go on all the time.

More Poems

The More Poems section has a new selection of poetry. Only one of them is fairly new (November 2016). The others are from 2004, 2006 and 2014. The titles of the four poems are The Seven Lies of Man, Somewhere Near Merthyr, In the National Gallery and Meeting the East Hill Mob. There are numerous links to poetry (not all by me, I hasten to add) elsewhere on the website.

Hear a Poem - Stephen Oliver

Stephen Oliver is a new addition to the Hear a Poem section. He is also one of the new additions to the Music section. He provides the words for Emblem for Dead Youth and Matt Otley adds the music. Stephen has been on the original GUEST section for a number of years. Also, Gweddio i'r Mor can be read as well as heard. In this you can see the lyrics written by Jim Bartlett and hear his performance of the song, with guitar accompaniment by John Davies.

Autumn Quiz

There are new questions for September, 2016 in this new version of the quiz, one of the original pages on the site. If you want to wrestle with questions as diverse as what is a villanelle, who ballsed up our railways and what is a Transtasman poet (but not if you want GLITTERING PRIZES) this could be the page for you.

The Freedom to Wear Silly Red Coats

This new addition has been added to Pinkoprose. In reality, many foxhunting protestors as well as foxhunting supporters will probably take offence. Oh well. Can't win 'em all.

A Few Red Poets

Phil Knight has now joined A Few Red Poets with his poem The Boyo Who Lost His Shape. Phil is already on the Even More Guests section with his poem Poets for Sale. His is a distinctive and surreal voice well worth hearing in performance.

*

Old Acquaintance

Old Acquaintance is a short story. It was originally published in Passing Moments. Some of the illustrations drawn for it appear here. These are pen-and-ink drawings by Suki Humphreys.

*

HG Wells

This page features pieces originally featuring in the newsletter of the HG Wells Society. The first is Wars of the Waves. This is about radio broadcast versions of War of the Worlds and the second a film review of The Time Machine.
