A timely reissue of one of the greatest fantasies of the eighties. Strange, beautiful and completely absorbing.
Mythago Wood caused a sensation when it was first published in the UK in the mid eighties. Here was an author dealing in myth and fantasy taken seriously by the press. With this republication of one of the greats of modern British fantasy, it won’t take long for new readers to realise why.
The mystery of Ryhope Wood consumed George Huxley to the point of madness. After his death, his sons take up his life’s work. What they discover goes beyond all conception. For the wood is a place where myths gain flesh and blood, tapping primal fears and desires subdued through the millennia. Where love and beauty haunt your dreams and propel you into the terrifying freedom of insanity.
