In 2018, Seren published Dear Mona: Letters from a Conscientious Objector, by Jonah Jones.
Seren’s founder, Cary Archard, in a note of thanks to long-term publisher Mick Felton, who retired in June 2023, used this excerpt from Peter’s introduction to Dear Mona:
Cary Archard’s note ended: ‘This extra makes the point [about Mick Felton’s qualities as a publisher]. Knowledge of the writer as a person, an individual. Publishing on a personal level. Respect for the work and the author. The extract shows you the kind of publisher Mick was and gives you an idea of the kind of atmosphere that he helped to create at Seren. Although he has retired, Mick leaves behind an entrenched legacy of caring, of business at a personal level, that will live on.’
