JOURNEYS BEYOND ADVICE by Rhys Hughes
Originally published by Sarob Press in 2002, and now re-published in 2014 by Gloomy Seahorse Press, a new book to me that I have just purchased direct from the printer.
My previous real-time reviews of Rhys Hughes works are linked from HERE.
Quoted on the back cover:
“Thank you so much for the novella ‘The World Beyond the Stairwell’ in Journeys Beyond Advice. It has given me such great pleasure, even though the light here is quite dim. How wonderful to read a story that is unabashedly a tip of the hat/ homage, and yet truly original, funny and yet serious. And sprinkled with the additional pleasures of meeting up with so many amazing beasties. This, to my mind, was one of the best novellas of 2002. I hope it gets on award ballots.” – JEFF VANDERMEER
“‘The World Beyond the Stairwell’ may well be the finest tribute (with love) to William Hope Hodgson ever written.” – JOHN CLUTE
MY REVIEW WILL SOON START IN THE COMMENT STREAM BELOW AS AND WHEN I HAPPEN TO READ IT:-
