Hello beasties...

This week I am pleased to announce the new 10th anniversary edition of my 5th collection, THE AUTUMNAL E.P., which originally came out in the autumn of 2003. Here are some more details:

THE AUTUMNAL E.P., published in late-2003, was Paul’s fifth self-published collection and his fourth to include completely contemporary compositions. Long before he became Shy Yeti he was just plain Paul Chandler; what hasn’t changed is that he always wrote daft verse! Until now THE AUTUMNAL E.P. has only been available alongside its sister volume LOVESONGS FOR THE BITTER AND TWISTED (due to be re-issued in 2014) so this is the first time it has stood alone. This version is a special 10th anniversary edition containing photos and behind-the-scenes information about the book. This collection includes many poems that Paul still performs today such as ALL THE RAGE, ANIMAL CRUELTY, THE BALLAD OF TINY ELVIS, BLUE-EYED LOVER (GREEN-EYED FREAK), HOW CAN WE BE WRONG?, SOMETIMES I JUST WANNA and WORN ROMANTIC, but many that he doesn’t!



Moving on, last week I promised you some more photos from America, so here they are...


Some more of the sights and sounds of Portland that I observed during my trip out to the States back in late August. As I discussed last week I wrote a few new poems during the trip and also completed filming another SHY YETI ON LOCATION episode... I just need to get editing!

Before I head off I should just remind you that my next Poetry Café show with John Smallshaw *and ANOTHER top special guest) is coming up this Friday - the 13th September, at 19.30 should you be free! If you can't make the next show then the last one of 2013 is in November, Friday 29th November to be precise. I'll also be celebrating a significant birthday around that time too! *laughs and cries at same time*

Next week I'll be discussing the show and may have some photos from it too. I will get around to editing a new SHY YETI ON LOCATION episode soon! I promise... I did do a little bit last night, btw! Honest.

Take care and keep poetic!

Yeti hugs,

Paul xx
