An occasional posting
Ooh, Alan Garner, an essential part of my 70s childhood! Still love him actually - I got the 60s TV series on DVD for Christmas (I didn't see it then, being too young & not having a TV anyway), but someone recommended it to me - it's quite good, in a very faded summer of love, mystical way, but the book is far better. (I think you can find clips on Youtube if you are interested)
You have the same edition as I! Loved his books as a child. I re-read The Weirdstone of Brisingamen and The Moon of Gomrath (and sometimes Elidor) every few years. But this one not so often. Disturbing.
sounds like something critically missing from my early reading - i must seek them out!and i wonder if my niece and friend alice (aka owlice) who both have owls as their totem know about thee series???? must ask!
Another one to look for!
Thursbitch is quite a read, btw. Not for kids.
I'm scratching my head and had to go to amazon.com to look up this book. I apparently missed a whole bunch of books when I was growing up. They look scary! According to the Christian Science Monitor, this title deserves to be read and reread!
I was reading The Outsiders and That Was Then This Is Now and getting very frightened.
