WELCOME!

Feel free to roam about and contact me if you wish.

May 2018 I've begun a blog, carpe DM, of new unpublished poems - work in progress. It is useful, I think, for self-criticism to have new poems 'out there', even for a small audience. I hope too that readers will feel free to 'reply' to individual poems with a comment, whether positive or negative. The usual health-warning: ADULTS ONLY! Go to dmthomaspoems.blogspot.co.uk I've uploaded 25, written over the last few months, and hope to add more as they occur.

2018 news:
The British Library has acquired my Archive. Earlier material is at Wisconsin University.

New poetry:
My latest collection, SHADOW SONNETS, will appear from Indigo Dreams later this year.
Simon & Schuster will be publishing my translation of Pushkin's first, long masterpiece RUSLAN AND LUDMILA, in the UK and USA.

Recent publications include:

HUNTERS IN THE SNOW (Cornovia Press). My fourteenth novel, and my first for fourteen years. It is set in Vienna just before the First World War.

Recent poetry collections: MRS ENGLISH AND OTHER WOMEN and FAMILY BIBLE, both from Francis Boutle Publishers. From the same publishers my translation of Pushkin's ONEGIN.

I can be heard reading some of my poetry on the Poetry Archive. poetryarchive.org/poet/d-m-thomas.
