This review is from: Lud-In-The-Mist (Paperback)
A half-lost classic of British fantasy - I discovered it as part of the Fantasy Masterworks re-issues. It doesn't fit in the post-Tolkien fantasy landscape too well (except perhaps with other oddities like Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell) but so much the better as far as I'm concerned. If you're bored of sword-and-sorcery, or if you can't stand the quality of writing accepted in much of the genre, then this will come as a breath of fresh air.
