Book Details

For over half a century, Richard Matheson has enthralled and terrified readers with such timeless classics as I Am Legend, The Incredible Shrinking Man, Duel, Somewhere in Time, and What Dreams May Come. Now the Grand Master returns with a bewitching tale of erotic suspense and enchantment….

1918. A young American soldier recently wounded in the Great War, Alex White comes to Gatford to escape his troubled past. The pastoral English village seems the perfect spot to heal his wounded body and soul. True, the neighboring woods are said to be haunted by capricious, even malevolent, spirits, but surely those are just old wives' tales.

Aren't they?

A frightening encounter in the forest leads him into the arms of Magda Variel, an alluring red-haired widow rumored to be a witch. She warns him to steer clear of the wood and the perilous faerie kingdom it borders, but Alex cannot help himself. Drawn to its verdant mysteries, he finds love, danger…and wonders that will forever change his view of the world.

In The News

“[A] bittersweet blend of fantasy and romantic suspense.” —Publishers Weekly

“A vital, witty, frightening, erotic and intelligent page-turner about the follies of youth, deeply immersed in an arcane world that lurks beneath the safe, definable surfaces of the everyday.” —Fangoria

“Matheson himself is a literary faerie of sorts, his trick being his ability to coax off a story's familiar pathway to take us deep and deeper into his world until we accept what we instinctively reject. Those open to such imaginings couldn't ask for a better guide.” —Associated Press
