Our friend, the Irish poet, translator and critic Desmond O'Grady (1935-2014), died yesterday of a heart attack in Kinsale, two days short of his 79th birthday. Poetry Salzburg had the honour of publishing two of Desmond's most important volumes, Trawling Tradition. Translations 1954-1994 (1994) and The Road Taken. Poems 1956-1996 (1996). In 2003 we also launched the Desmond O'Grady casebook entitled The Wide World.
The Irish President Michael D. Higgins has paid tribute to Desmond in the Irish Independent and commented: "He leaves a fine collection of work, reflecting both his migrant experience and his affection for his homeland, that will be studied and cherished by future generations. Those of us who knew him as a friend will never forget his rich sense of humour and his deep commitment to friendships which he valued and enriched." (click here to read the full obituary in the Irish Independent).
More information on Desmond can be found on his Facebook page.

Chris Bendon (1950-2011) / Book of the month:

He studied English at St. David's University College, Lampeter (now University of Wales, Trinity Saint David) from 1977-1980, and was widely published. As well as the numerous inclusions in anthologies and periodicals including New Welsh Review, Poetry Wales, London Magazine, The Rialto, The Poet's Voice, Poetry Salzburg Review, and New England Review, Chris published 13 volumes of poetry in his lifetime. A fourteenth was at proof stage at the time of his death. He was awarded the Hugh MacDiarmid Memorial Trophy, won £1,000 in the World Wide Fund for Nature/Guardian Poetry Competition. Poetry Salzburg published the following books by Chris Bendon: Jewry (1995), Crossover: A Play on Words or Libretto for an Imaginary Opera (1996), and Novella: A Novel Poem (1997).

The Independent published Charles Lock's obituary for Anne Blonstein.
Almost exactly three years after she was diagnosed with cancer in the Spring of 2008, Anne Blonstein died in the Ita Wegman Klinik in Arlesheim near Basel in the early hours of Tuesday April 19, 2011, three days before her 53rd birthday. In the last months, Anne carefully organised all the materials related to her published and unpublished work to be handed over to Charles Lock, a close friend and Professor of English Literature at the University of Copenhagen. Charles Lock will administer her literary estate and can be reached at email@example.com.

Glen Cavaliero's Towards the Waiting Sun was released.
Due to personal reasons David Miller has decided to leave the Editorial Board of Poetry Salzburg Review after the publication of issue 19. David has been part of our team from the very first issue and is therefore its longest serving member. His influence on the editorial policy of PSR cannot be overestimated. He commissioned many (young) poets to contribute work to PSR, some of which was quite experimental. PSR has always had a catholic approach to poetry and does not want to limit itself to publishing primarily mainstream / conservative poetry. Even if David is not "on board" anymore we will not change this. We want to thank David for all the time and energy he has spent on making PSR the successful magazine which it is now and wish him the very best for his future.

Poetry Salzburg Review 17 was released.
This is the first time that the publication of an issue has been considerably delayed. For this we offer due apologies to our readers. The printer we have been working with for more than fifteen years went bankrupt, a fact of which we only received notice in late February when we were about to send in the CDROM of a new collection. It has been difficult to find a printer willing to devote himself with the same care and degree of commitment to our projects and whose rates we could still afford. Finally we have managed to sign a contract with Friedrich Druckerei in Baden-Württemberg. It is to be hoped that the new partnership will once again be a long standing one.
Today we posted the CDROM for Poetry Salzburg Review 17 (Spring 2010) and we hope that we will receive the galleys from our printer soon. We will announce on our website when we start to post your copies of PSR 17.
