Poetry from a Mistimed Youth

100 protest poems originally written in 1982 to 1985 and edited for their initial publication in 2015. The poems are mostly about Mercia McMahon's native Northern Ireland, pacifism, nuclear warfare, and other aspects of the absurd. Appendices explain this poetic hiatus in her 37 year quest to become a novelist and the possibilities of some 21st century verse in years to come.

Forthcoming Publications

​This rolling news article is a permanent resource for announcing forthcoming publications by Mercia McMahon. Brexit in Context on the historical context to the UK vote to leave the European Union has been pushed back to an April or May 2017 publication date. I'm afraid that my writing schedule continues to be disrupted by long-term health problems. The focus will then turn to volumes 2 and 3 of the Fumetsu Cycle, a non magical fantasy set in an alternate feudal era Asia.
