Dixon's third collection of poems. Also known as a Leech Barometer,
a Tempest Prognosticator is a 19th century invention that uses
leeches to predict storms. The leeches are kept in small bottles
inside the machine. When they become agitated by an approaching
storm they try to climb out of the bottles and trigger a small
hammer which strikes a bell. Like this strange, Victorian
reference, Dixon practices a stylish, time-honoured kind of poetry.
Well-crafted poems make you want to read them again and again.
Added to the appeal of the collection are fascinating conversations
with Eugene Marais, Adamastor and Nonqawuse.
