New Alan Garner book!!!

Despite my recent shift to ebooks, I think I am going to have to buy the third part of the Weirdstone trilogy in hardback. I really really hope I won't be disappointed.

I was a huge Garner fan in my teens. I'd never imagined that you could write a fantasy story about the grotty place where I lived, but he did it with Elidor. I lived more or less in the area they were pulling down. Not my actual house, but there were streets and streets of derelict houses within a just a short walk.

For part of my Ranger Guide Challenge, I went to explore as many of the places in Weirdstone and Moon of Gomrath as I could and wrote about them. I keep meaning to go back to Alderley, but haven't got a round tuit yet.
