Prophet, Priest and King is a long-overdue of Ross Nichol's poetry which includes prose from Prose Chants and Poems (1941), The Cosmic Shape (with James Kirkup, 1946), Seasons at War (1947), and unpublished poems from the early '50s onwards. Edited and introduced by Jay Ramsey.

Ross Nichols was Chief of the Order of Bards, Ovates & Druids until his death in 1975. An accomplished prose writer, essayist, editor and water colourist who exhibited at the Royal Academy, we can now see him as one of the "Apocalypse poets" of the 1940's. As Chief of the Order from 1964, his contribution was substantial, re-introducing into contemporary Druid practice the winter Solstice Festival and the four Celtic Fire Festivals, which he led in London and at Glastonbury.
