'A writer of fierce and vivid imagination. The Tangle, like Holdstock's classic Mythago Wood and Catlin's The Voorh, taps the deep resonances of the wild wood in the English soul, revering even the stones as living minds, possessed of souls and ancient memories. Visceral stuff from this promising new star of dark fantasy' Michael Moorcock

Justin Robertson's debut novel is a trans- dimensional trip into the mysterious knot of nature; a journey into the 'brilliant darkness' where the timeless divine spirit of the 'Tangle' weaves its spell and all mankind's hubris is rendered insignificant by the radically non-human force of phantom ecology. Salvation, revelation and a terrible reckoning dwell in the ancient roots ...

A time travelling account of what occurs when unknowable frontiers are breached and humanity finds itself, once again, lost in the woods, THE TANGLE invites us into a grotesque world of eco-horror, echoing with the spirit of writers such as Saki, Ballard, M R James, Ursula Le Guin, Brian Catling and Thomas Ligotti.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A fine debut from a writer of fierce and vivid imagination. The Tangle, like Holdstock's classic Mythago Wood and Catlin's The Voorh, taps the deep resonances of the wild wood in the English soul, revering even the stones as living minds, possessed of souls and ancient memories. Visceral stuff from this promising new star of dark fantasy -- Michael Moorcock
'Mind-bending . . . a cross between HG Wells and HP Lovecraft . . . this creepy puzzler feels thrillingly unkempt * Metro *

Veteran DJ and dance music producer Justin Robertson's debut novel is a psychedelic trip into a pandimensional heart of darkness...a wildly ambitious book; a heady mix of pulp horror, nature writing gone feral, "phantom ecology" and ruminations on the cycle of life and death. Sometimes it feels like a bizarro mash-up of Jeff Noon and Robert Macfarlane...certainly one of the more adventurous debuts you'll read this year.

* SFX Magazine *
A massive headf*ck of a novel, a true tangle, a chthonic entity and a classic of New Weird Fiction * David Keenan *
A bold, ambitious and thrilling sci-fi folk horror that explores the ease with which deep ecology strips away all that remains of your humanity * John Higgs *
Fiercely animistic. [The Tangle is] a book that vitally brings eco-horror from the future pages of sci-fi back to the present. * English Heretic blog *
The Tangle is the kind of horror-SF hybrid our neurotic age deserves: grotesque as a Hogarth engraving, violent as a comic, and deeply disconcerting * The Times *
