Saville also edited a poetry anthology called Words For All Seasons, first published in 1979 and still in print. Before his death Saville began a book on the Shropshire countryside he loved, called The Silent Hills of Shropshire; he died before he could finish it, but it was completed by Mark O'Hanlon and published in 1998, although it is no longer in print. Mark O'Hanlon's biography of Saville, Beyond the Lone Pine is, however, in print.
