Ansible, really?

Holdstock definitely deserved the honor. The Ryhope Wood series is phenomenal and it's such a tragedy that he's no longer with us. Truly an underrated talent. Criminally so on this side of the pond.

Hear hear for Conrad Williams.

One is a fantastically grim post -apocalyptic horror novel.

It is very well written, the prose is spare. lean and haunting, and in particular the strength of the novel rests with the extremely well drawn cast of characters.

It is also truly horrific in places with the last thirty pages of the novel among some of the most disturbing horror fiction I have ever read.

It lingered long in the mind after I had finished.

You should check it out.

Also Robert Holdstock's Mythago Wood cycle is just plain magical and enchanting and well worth your time. What more could one ask for from a series of books about a magical, enchanted wood?? World Fantasy is a smaller place following his death last year.
