For a few years in the early 90’s I was given masks wherever I went (there are ten masks in the novel, all of them ‘gateways’ into different unknown regions of the past).

ONLY to that extent that the protagonist (and his dad and brother - even more yuck) fantasize about her does she even *exist.Family lore states that he had a dispute with his older brother Major William Henry Harrison Keaton and that had caused the name change. Lo fundamental es eso, y creo que es una de las lecturas fundamentales del género, si es que eso existe. There is little love, or sense of joy in the magic; this is obsession and wildness, and while I'm a fan of pursuing passion and all things wild, this is the dreamscape extreme that occurred after a few too many tipples before bed. Il finale è contemporaneamente pregio e difetto del libro: da una parte esplodono tutte le pulsanti idee (potenzialmente infinite) circa i Mitago e il ruolo che ricoprono nel preservare questo magico luogo; dall'altra parte, e questo era anche preventivabile, si osserva una certa difficoltà nel tirare le fila della storia e definire con maggior chiarezza il contesto. The area around Ryhope Wood being sparsely populated, there are few mythagos in the woodland, but because of his interest in the wood and his deliberate experiments in the 1930s, George Huxley created more mythagos than would normally be present in the wood at any one time, causing a greater than usual diversity within the wood.

There are unnecessary sections of lengthy exposition, and the characters themselves feel more like flat myths than anything real (possibly intentionally?The Urscumug was generated on purpose by George Huxley and is a malevolent and ancient variation on the woodwose. Kim Newman notes that the series offers “mind-stretching meditation on the nature of collective imagination". Me resulta muy difícil valorar este libro en caliente —me va a ir de fábula poder discutirlo en The Spoiler Club—.

If I'd been introduced to this author's work in the mid-late 80s, I would probably have liked it a lot more, as I was just getting into the paganism/green man/ occultism thing. Rather, she moves in with him, to be judged, bathed with deodorant soap, and finally to serve as a depository for the protagonist’s .

If we had had a female protagonist with her own mythago creatures, I might have thought differently but this felt very 'male' to me. There is so much to dislike about this book, but I’ll start with what I detest the most: the dull yet offensive plot. Ryhope Woods is full of mythological creatures, familiar heroes such as Robin Hood, and Hercules, but also mythological creatures that existed before written memory. His love for the nature goddess seems coerced by her magical animal magnetism and not a real relationship, so it was hard to care about them being together. I don't have the book in front of me, but its only a short period of time before he starts muttering about 'forever.

Several interviews at international conventions had pointed out that my characters existed on a diet of nuts, berries, squirrels and tree fungus. Two weeks after Christian hiked into the woods, Steven finds a woman's body buried under the chicken huts. I love working with the mix and match of different legends, and The Hollowing, of all my work, is probably the richest and most complex novel in this way.The whole "am I becoming a myth myself" aspect of the main character's part of the story was awesome and there was level of straight up cool-ness in everything going on that I rarely find in my reading these days. Despite it's slow pace it was never a dull book because in those slow parts atmosphere is being created, characters developed and world more shaped out. Strange people and creatures have been sighted, and the wood seems to have a life - or several of them - of its own.
