Stephen Huxley has already lost his father to the mysteries of Ryhope Wood. Upon his return from the Second World War, he realises that his brother, Christian, is also in the woodland's thrall. For within the primal forest is a realm where mythic archetypes grow flesh and blood, where love and beauty may haunt your dreams and lead you to the terrifying freedom of insanity.
Robert Holdstock's Mythago Wood won the World Fantasy Award and is among the most-praised post-war novels of the fantastical. Worthy of comparison with Margaret Atwood, Anthony Burgess and Robert Graves, it is a masterful novel from one of Britain's most accomplished writers.
Also in this series are Gate of Ivory, Gate of Horn, Lavondyss, The Bone Forest, The Hollowing
