As of 2019, Reliquiae goes biannual, being published in the spring and autumn. Vol 7 No 1 features a wealth of ecologically aware writing from the past and present, ranging from the ethnological to the philosophical, the lyrical to the visionary. It is the editors’ shared belief that such writing has never been more necessary if we are to rediscover our connectedness to, and reliance upon, the natural world. With this in mind, Reliquiae is now more widely available than ever before. Readers outside the UK can now order the journal via their local bookstore, or from a retailer within their country.

Reliquiae Volume Six contains poetic evocations of the constellations, the sun and moon, chrysalids, the ‘celestial echo’, the sky’s ‘blue palace’, the godhead of pollen, the ‘pulse of stones’ and the ‘pibroch of the hill’. There are conjurings of Bronze Age burials, Neolithic fires and Palaeolithic cave paintings, as well as invocations of Saraswati, Cernunnos, Vahagn and the Divine Mother. Prose works include essays on the archaic ‘Crane Dance’, performed in ‘awe and mimicry of nature’; the significance of the constellations in Navajo cosmology; the mathematical roots of ‘celestial harmony’; the ‘world pillar’ of circumpolar mythology; and the mystical symbology of the serpent & the number zero.

September sees the publication of An Almost-Gone Radiance by Autumn Richardson, the second in our new series of hardcover titles. This beautiful book is a collection of Autumn’s poetry, written for the landscapes of the boreal forests and Kootenay Mountains (Canada), the Burren (Ireland), the Sierra Nevadas (Spain), and the Furness Fells (UK). It is work that explores a deeply personal connection to the natural world, full of memories of encounters with the other-than-human, sentient landscapes, and the medicinal powers of plants.
