Apparently Robert Holdstock died yesteday, unexpectedly.
Back in 1984 he wrote Mythago Wood, which won various awards and gave a major boost to his career, which until then had mainly consisted of pseudonymous horror novels, but later it seemed like his publishers only really wanted sequels to it. Apart from his Merlin Codex trilogy, I think he only published one novel afterwards that wasn’t connected…
But Mythago Wood was a wonderful book, and a key fantasy work of the period, and although the sequels were never quite as good as the original, the series brought a breath of fresh air and good writing to the genre, which is often taken for granted now…

Transreal Fiction is a shop dedicated to selling science fiction, fantasy & related books, together with a limited selection of other merchandise.But really, it’s about books. Transreal Fiction opened in April 1997 in Cowgatehead and moved to it’s present location nearby in June 2011. The owner, Mike Calder, first sold sf & f books many years ago and has worked in the business either part- or full-time since. For years he also had a respectable job as well, but that’s another story…
The shop is named after the term coined by Rudy Rucker to describe his fiction and I thought it an apt name for a shop specialising in speculative fiction. And, in case you’re wondering, yes, Rudy Rucker was happy to allow me to use of the term as a name for my shop.
