More About the Author

Garry Douglas Kilworth was born in York in 1941. He began travelling the minute his feet hit the ground. As a service brat he was raised in various counties of England, in Aden, and in Singapore. He went to military school at the age of 15 and served in the RAF until 33, in Kenya, Aden, Maldives, Singapore, Hong Kong, Cyprus, Germany and Malta. On leaving the RAF he had his first short story published in the Sunday Times. Novels with Faber and Faber, and Penguin Books, followed shortly afterwards. After working for Cable and Wireless in the Caribbean for 8 years he turned full-time writer and to date has 125 short stories and 70 novels published. He has worked in several genres, including Science Fiction, Fantasy, General Fiction, Children's books, Historical Fiction and Military Crime novels. Garry is still married to Annette, the girl he met when she was 17 and he 19. They have two children, a boy and a girl, now in their forties, and five beloved grandchildren, Alexander being the boy in the photograph. Garry Kilworth's main influences have been: Rudyard Kipling, HG Wells, Julio Cortazar and a whole raft of modern authors, many of them now friends.

By Clare O'Beara TOP 500 REVIEWER on 3 July 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a fantasy set among the Polynesian islanders who travel in handmade rafts across the Pacific Ocean.

Kilworth has looked carefully at how they make tools and war clubs without metalwork - by studding a club with sharks' teeth, say - and at the values and beliefs of the cultures they encounter. Food in general is easy to come by, between breadfruit, fishing and other island foods. Commerce and cultural exchange between islands are important so a travelling troupe of actors, some with tattooed legs to show their importance, moves between the islands, knowing how to navigate by the colour of the sea, the sound of breakers, the smell of plants.

Oh, and you don't want to upset the gods. Definitely not. There are several in the pantheon, and you may encounter witches and monsters on new islands.

The series is The Roof of Voyaging, The Princely Flower, and The Land of Mists. In this fantasy, the island of Britain, inhabited by primitive Picts, replaces New Zealand, and one of the Picts who strangely likes to tame one of the edible dogs, unwillingly joins the travellers on their voyages. The Land Of Mists deals with travel to the Pictish land.
