The Mysterium is a small, private publishing house specialising in books that take you for a walk on the weird side!
Rae Bailey makes marginal notes in books, but now verse scribbles in her in its margin. She is more substantial than her shadow, but less substantial than her reflection. She lives at the base of the Pennine Chain with a cat called Finn and a hairy canine menace called Jake.
Verse on grief, from the outside. This is how losing him felt.
