Au­thor: Robert Hold­stock Pub­lisher: Gol­lancz Hold­stock’s 1984 clas­sic gets another run out, cour­tesy of the Fan­tasy Mas­ter­works im­print. Set in the ’ 40s, it re­volves around an an­cient wood­land pop­u­lated by myth- images: flesh and blood crea­tures gen­er­ated from the sub­con­scious of nearby hu­man minds. Writ­ing for our reg­u­lar Book Club fea­ture, au­thor Mark Charon New­ton called it, “the de­fin­i­tive ru­ral fan­tasy… the story of ob­ses­sion, a hymn of mythol­ogy, an an­them of the woods.”
