Poetry is the latest direction for author, editor and BFS stalwart Allen Ashley. Specifically, Allen Ashley and up and coming poet Sarah Doyle have written a sequence of poems entitled “Dreaming Spheres: Poems of the Solar System” and are currently lining up a small tour to promote and present the show. The content includes Allen’s poems “Colour Pictures” from “Dark Horizons 56” and “The Astronauts” which he performed with rock band Hawkwind many moons ago.
Two gigs are currently confirmed – Ware Poets on Friday December 10th 2010 and Salisbury House Poets (Edmonton, London) on Saturday 5th March 2011, with other appearances under discussion. The show lasts approximately 40 minutes. Allen and Sarah are vibrant performers and are happy to negotiate further appearances anywhere suitable.
