A supernatural trip into the mysterious knot of nature where terror and vengeance, but also redemption can be found in the roots. Ballard meets Hammer horror
´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.
