Andrew Stibbs (1939—2011)

Peter and Ann, and all at The Poetry Business, are very sorry to hear of the death of Andrew Stibbs.

"We are very sorry to announce the death of Andrew Stibbs on 22nd December.

Andrew was much loved by everyone who knew him, and he was a great friend over the years to us at the Poetry Business. He was an inspiration to many at Leeds University (where Ann occasionally worked for him) and indeed to us.

Among other things he was known to us for his wise, informed and always generous-minded reviewing — we were more than once able to pass on appreciative feedback from North readers, including one comment that he was 'The Prince of Reviewers'.

Andrew Stibbs was a very special man and he will be much missed."

— Peter Sansom
