Product description

From the Back Cover

Alex Bradley, a highly imaginative child left brain-damaged after a bizarre attack, vanishes one day from his home. Months later a body is found on the edge of Ryhope Wood wherein live the mythagos-phantoms generated over time by our dreams and nightmares.

Alex has in fact been absorbed by the wood, drawn through a ‘hollowing’ into its green heart. There his dreams will continue to populate the wood with his particular mythagos. But like Alex, they too are damaged: the great heroes he conjures are warped, incomplete and dangerous. Savage and lost, they are compelled to seek their creator.

The havoc they wreak threatens those who search for Alex, including his father, Richard. In the end, it will threaten the very existence of the wood itself and of its natural mythagos.

“Time stopping stuff from one of Britain’s best … a myth-maker of originality”
THE TIMES

“'The Hollowing' is Holdstock’s richest and most skilful exercise in fiction to date”
