Friday Reads: Mythago Wood

This week  Simon Spanton looks back at the masterpiece that is Mythago Wood.  Rob Holdstock died on this day in 2009. It was, of course, far too soon and a massive loss to his family and friends.

Fantasy Masterwork of the Week: The Falling Woman

We cannot hope to match the insight or depth of knowledge Kev McVeigh exhibited in last week’s From the Attic post, so we’re not even going to try. We will simply say that our current Masterwork of the Week is Pat Murphy‘s Nebula Award-winning The Falling Woman.  And you should go read it.   THE […]
