In February 2001, Proctor Hall's Press published Lucas Myers's: Crow Steered / Bergs Appeared.

In May/June 2001 Lucas approached me about the possibility of publishing additional notes on the book on this site.

From the back cover of the book:

Ted Hughes and Lucas Myers met at Cambridge University in January 1955. They maintained a close friendship until Hughes's death on 28 October 1998. Myers lived at St. Botolph's Rectory in Cambridge and with Hughes and five others produced a literary magazine called the St. Botolph's Review. Hughes and Myers met Sylvia Plath at a party on 25 February 1956 to celebrate the appearance of the magazine.

Myers was a friend of Sylvia Plath, Hughes's sister Olwyn and Assia Wevill. His memoir draws on his forty-year correspondence with Hughes and discusses Birthday Letters and Plath's Journals 1950-1962.
