The Moon Of Gomrath: Alan Garner [Mar. 23rd, 2012|09:29 am]
Tony Grist
More artistry, less control. The fairytale wizard Cadellin- proponent of an etiolated, nicely-mannered "High Magic"- is pushed aside by an eruption of creatures from a deeper layer of myth. Garner has read more, understands less and has the confidence to drop the reins on his imagination and let it gallop away. The Wild Hunt rides. He will spend the rest of his career dealing with the forces he has raised.  "The Old Magic was free for ever, and the Moon was new."

The only Alan Garner book I have ever read is The Owl Service. I read it so long ago that I can barely remember it, but I remember I enjoyed it and that it was quite odd.

The Owl Service is the one where he sort of breaks the mould. I need to re-read it.
