Read full description of the books Merlin's Wood:Robert Holdstock was a great writer and his Mythago Woods Cycle of books are fantastic. His Merlin books are not on that level in our opinion but still good. Merlin’s Wood is sort of a bridge between these two series of books, being the story of Merlin’s efforts to escape the captivity by the enchantress Vivien to whom legend tells us he fell prey. It is a beautiful and poetic book, even while essentially tragic in nature. With this novel came four short stories that are all also very good especially the Bone Forest, which is part of the Mythago Woods Cycle. These are very pagan stories. Whether they take place in the distant past or the present, Holdstock had a way of evoking the atmosphere of our pagan ancestors and their lives and beliefs. His pagan version of the Lord’s Prayer at the end of the story The Spirit-Echo’s Promise is interesting in and of itself. Highly recommended.
