The Bone Forest

by Robert Holdstock
Release date: 1991
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, short stories

World Fantasy Award nominee 1992.

A collection of eight short stories set in a mystical wood features a snow woman, a scientist succumbing to an age-old madness, roaming demons, conjurers working their pagan magic, and more.

In the novella ‘The Bone Forest’ which forms the centrepiece of this outstanding collection, Holdstock goes back to the events preceding Mythago Wood. It is 1935, and two scientists, George Huxley and Edward Wynne-Jones, are attempting to map the wood and analyse the curious manifestations which they have christened ‘mythagos’. At the same time, Huxley’s obsession with his work threatens to alienate him from his family, and in particular his son Steven.
