Articles and Poems from The Books of To-day and the Books of To-morrow (UK)

 

We are indebted to the late Terry Mordue for his painstaking work in converting these articles and poems into HTML, formatting them, and adding many ✎ annotations (in general, the numbered footnotes are Terry’s, where not otherwise credited). Be sure to visit his webpages relating to PGW, now hosted on this site. Additional ✎ notes have been added [2016], including artwork for the “Academy Notes” where available, with additional proofreading by Neil Midkiff, Ian Michaud, and Karen Shotting.
