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.
