By popular demand! If you missed the original and want to have a go, it's here.

1. Bridge of Birds, by Barry Hughart
Spring; a half-closed eye.
Rabbits, tigers, counting rhymes.
Dry cup! Birds will fly.

2. Headlong Hall, by Thomas Love Peacock
Ruined by design -
such a picturesque vista!
Water tumbles fast.

3. Arcadia, by Tom Stoppard
Love burns; paper burns;
ash never turns to paper.
Birds fly and birds fall.

4. The Producers (correctly guessed)
Need a sure-fire flop?
Just don't mention the war - oh.
Never mind. Good luck!

5. The Ballad of Thomas the Rhymer
Summer grass, velvet,
silver chimes; gold speaks magic.
Truth, sight. Loneliness.

6. A Shilling Cookery for the People - Alexis Soyer
Poor people can't cook -
nobody can cook like me!
I shall write the book.

7. Someplace to be Flying - Charles de Lint (correctly guessed)
Rainbow-black feathers.
A sister, under the skin.
Can't resist watching.

8. Palimpsest - Catherynne M Valente
Journeys, destinations;
It's all people, in the end.
Want to catch some ink?

9. The Wishstone and the Wonderworker - Hugh Cook
Wise (and grumpy) crab;
dragon; white ape; therapist.
A sun? A child's toy!
