Deep within the wildwood lies a place of myth and mystery, from which few return, and of those few, none remain unchanged.

Ryhope Wood may look like a three-mile-square fenced-in wood in rural Herefordshire on the outside, but inside, it is a primeval, intricate labyrinth of trees, impossibly huge, unforgettable ... and stronger than time itself.

Stephen Huxley has already lost his father to the mysteries of Ryhope Wood. On his return from the Second World War, he finds his brother, Christopher, is also in thrall to the mysterious wood, wherein lies a realm where mythic archetypes grow flesh and blood, where love and beauty haunt your dreams, and in promises of freedom lies the sanctuary of insanity ...

'Blimey, what a book! Genuine classic of mythological fiction.' Goodreads reviewer, ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

'An imaginative masterpiece has broken the boundaries of fantasy genre. In Mythagowood Myths manifest from characters's unfathomable desires. The mysterious forest which the protagonists are obsessed with is an original concept of legends, it rooted in subconscious mind arouses overwhelming power of human minds'. Goodreads reviewer, ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

'To attempt to write a straightforward synopsis of Mythago Wood itself is almost to lose the very essence of the novel, to break away from the ethereal feeling which transcends the book.' Goodreads reviewer, ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

'I've seldomly read a book that is so rich and enthralling in its descriptions and really draws me into the mythical woods, where time flows differently, where your subconscious can conjure up archetypes and these can infringe upon your very real life outside of the forest.' Goodreads reviewer, ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
