As a supplement to Anatomy, I have produced an abridged audio version of some of the poems with musical backing.

The results have been uploaded to Soundcloud.

I’ve provided a short track by track commentary here.


COMPETITION – Win a copy of ‘Anatomy’

Would you like to win a free copy of ‘Anatomy’?

Well you can by entering this very simple competition.

1) Watch the video below, featuring ‘Summer Saturdays’ from the collection.

2) Try to describe the track by creating a new genre of music. For example, my best attempts are ‘national trustonica’ or ‘tweed ambient’.

3) Post your description to my facebook page or twitter account.

The best effort, as judged by me that I receive before 29th October, 2013, will receive a free copy of ‘Anatomy’.

So, thinking hats on.


As you can see from the press release that is on the front page of the site, 4th November 2013 has been confirmed as the publishing date for Anatomy by Simon Travers.

The book will be available in a short run of print copies from this website and also major online retailers such as Amazon and Waterstones. The cost of the print copy will be £5 plus postage and packaging and payments can be made through this site by paypal.

The book will also be available in ebook format. There will be an epub version which will be available firstly through this site. There will also be a Kindle version. Ebooks will be priced at £3.

In addition to this news, I am also starting to build the Anatomy press pack. As a part of that, you can read a short Q and A about Anatomy here.

Free Sample of Anatomy – Introduction

Today, I have posted the Introduction essay to Anatomy for you to read free on the website.

I have posted this part of the book so that it is possible to get a better insight to what Anatomy is all about and what I am trying to achieve.

Hope you find it interesting reading. If it raises any questions, then get in touch through the Twitter or Facebook buttons in the menu.

Anatomy will be available for purchase in November 2013.
