  • Classic World Fantasy Award-winning title

    I first read the novella that makes up the bulk of this collection when it was reprinted in Interzone in the 1990s. I reread it many times afterwards. I'm now delighted to find it available as an ebook. This is an absolute classic fantasy novella, and it deservedly won the world fantasy award for best novella upon its release. The Ragthorn is a haunting read and will stay with you long after you tab over the final page. That the novella is then coupled with a couple of extra tales - The Fabulous Beast by Garry Kilworth, and The Chrisma Trees by Robert Holdstock - is a bonus. The Holdstock tale has not appeared in any of his own collections, so is especially of interest to fans. It's such a pity that with Holdstock's tragic early death there won't be a further collaboration between these two writers. In an interview given some time before he passed away, Holdstock had hinted that another novella may have been on the cards. We can only hope that enough of it was intact for Kilworth to be able to finish the job on his own some time in the future. In the meantime we have The Ragthorn. And you should have it too. Buy it now, savour it, and read it again and again. I know I will.

    Thanks for your feedback!
