A potent collection of darkling ecstasies and transmutations. The novella 'Orphans on Granite Tides' is one of the most compelling and weird evocations of mystic lore I've read.

“Literature is what you write when you think you should be saying something. Writing begins when you’d rather be doing anything else: and you’ve just done it.”
Kenneth Patchen, The Journal of Albion Moonlight

“I have told the story of the great plague-summer; as an artist I could have wished that there had been more structure and design to it – as a man, that there had been less of the kind there was.”
