Product description


"In this wryly autofictional successor to Marshland, its author's vulnerability to the real meets once again his absolute clarity of hallucination, generating the perspective of a drugged polaroid camera exhausted after decades in search of the ideal seaside experience. It's a marriage made in Hastings. Simultaneously quotidian and grotesque, The Stone Tide is the funniest, most readable, most intelligently self-searching book I've read in years." -- M John Harrison, author of Light

"It turns out that Hastings is not where psychogeographers go to retire, but to buy collapsing, haunted houses, and go bats**t crazy." Will Ashon, author of Strange Labyrinth

"Hastings and its witches and magick and myth and legend and booze and dreams and fables." Salena Godden, author of Springfield Road

"Rees's uncanny adventures by the sea provide rich entertainment." Matt Thorne

"The Stone Tide shows us the town of Hastings as a complex map of past lives, hiding places, and scarred psyches. Geography and history can, it seems, hold a person together when all else fails. It's a painful way to exist, Gareth Rees tells us, but still a fascinating one to read about." Aliya Whiteley, author of The Beauty

"Remorselessly entertaining. Gareth E. Rees' East Sussex occult odyssey gives the bloated corpse of the mid-life crisis memoir a salty seaside French kiss of life." Ben Thompson

"It's astonishing and heartbreaking, and possibly invents a new genre: Personal Deep Topography." Owen Booth, author of What We're Teaching Our Sons

"Reminiscent of W.G. Sebald, particularly The Rings of Saturn." Chris Josiffe, author of Gef! The Strange Tale of an Extra-Special Talking Mongoose

"Hastings as strange attractor... a vortex of unstable locality, mythical histories and dark comedy." Fife Psychogeographical Collective

"An unusual, deeply personal account that offers up many wider issues to consider alongside a psychogeography of Hastings. Beguiling yet brutal in its honesty." Never Imitate

"A ghost story of time, place and imagination in turns spooky, funny, thought-provoking, educating and entertaining." --Vic Templar, author of Taking Candy from a Dog
