If you listen, really listen, maybe you’ll hear the ghost’s lullaby, that song that connects all that thrives in winter’s quiet.

I know there’s a ghost here. I can feel him in the cool hollow of this one-time foresters’ dorm, this place where I must sleep tonight.

I can feel him in the bathroom at the end of the passage, disappearing into the stained cracks in the tiles. I know he’s peering into the mirror with its rusted edges; I don’t dare look.

Grounded – Forsaken & Deserted Aeroplanes.

by Graham Robson; Airlife Publishing, 128pp, colour, £10.95, softback

BY DEFINITION, AIRCRAFT belong up there in the wide blue yonder and that’s certainly where they look best in photographs. Yet here’s a book without a single picture of a flying machine in its natural habitat which manages to remain both readable and visually appealing. Given the somewhat unpromising potential of the material — a series of ground-based machines in various stages of disregard — author Graham Robson has worked wonders.
