Monday Book Recommendation: Mythago Wood

MythagoWood

The mystery of Ryhope Wood, Britain’s last fragment of primeval forest, consumed George Huxley’s entire, and long, life. Now, after his death, his sons have taken up his work. But what they discover is beyond what they could have expected. For the Wood is a realm where myths gain flesh and blood, tapping primal fears and desires subdued through the millennia. A realm where love and beauty haunt your dreams — and may drive you insane.

 

 

 


Mythago Wood won the World Fantasy Award on its first publication in 1984, and secured Robert Holdstock’s reputation as one of the major fantasy writers of our time.
