This is a book like no other: a magical tapestry of folk tales, woven together to build a world that is as strange yet familiar as a half-remembered dream. It is an old world, a world of enchanted corn dollies and wild dances in poppy fields, a world of tricksters, lovers and fools. Through this world, Greychild must journey in search of his mother: from the village of Brunt Boggart, down the treacherous Pedlar Man's track, all the way to distant Arleccra, a city of treasures and temptation. If you follow him, a part of you will never come back.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Utterly wonderful... Now that I've stepped into Brunt Boggart, I know that part of me will never leave it." -- Kevin Crossley-Holland, author of The Arthur Trilogy

"David Greygoose conjures a rich, primordial dreamtime... A wonderful excavation of the story traditions that our ancestors huddled around for warmth, and highly recommended." -- Alan Moore, author of V for Vendetta and Watchmen

"Conjures a magical, poetic world of tricksters and enchantments in the mossy hollows of an ancient village." -- Observer

"It tastes fabulously medieval, it smells uncanny, it looks like the roots of half-forgotten herbs, and it sounds like verbs of thunder and earth." -- Jay Griffiths, author of Wild: An Elemental Journey

"[A] many faceted, finely crafted and genuinely enjoyable book... a piece of work that can be enjoyed equally by aficionados of fantasy, of folk horror and of fairy tale and folklore." -- Moof Magazine

"A marvellous collection of dream-like stories, all delightfully odd and many distinctly sinister... A book to be savoured." -- Nudge Books

"A strange and beautiful book." -- The School Librarian

“Brunt Boggart”

Once upon a time there was a village. It wasn’t a big village, nor was it a small village. It wasn’t an important village, but then again, in the grand scheme of things, it wasn’t an unimportant village either. In... More
