This week  Simon Spanton looks back at the masterpiece that is Mythago Wood

Rob Holdstock died on this day in 2009. It was, of course, far too soon and a massive loss to his family and friends. But we also lost one of this country’s finest fantasists. Our Friday Reads blog today really couldn’t be for any book other than Rob’s masterpiece, Mythago Wood.
