"Once there was a great classical tradition of rural British horror from MR James to The Wicker Man. Now Geoffrey Gudgion has revived the style, proving there's still nothing as creepy as the countryside." - Christopher Fowler, author of Hell Train and the Bryant & May mysteries --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
About the Author
Geoffrey Gudgion was the scholarship boy who was never bright enough to realise he’d have been happier as a writer than a businessman. Until, that is, he had a spectacular row with his boss and stepped off the corporate ladder. Prior to that epiphany, he made his first attempts at writing fiction during long deployments in the Royal Navy, and consistently failed to reconcile writing with being CEO of a technology company. Geoff likes his plots to have a strong sense of place that can be traced to his geography professor at Cambridge, who inspired his love of the English landscape and taught him to see traces of the distant past in the patterns of how we live today. No surprise, then, that Geoff’s first novel should be set in the 21st century but be grounded in the Dark Ages, and have at its heart an Anglo Saxon legend. Geoff lives with his wife in the Chiltern Hills between London and Oxford, and divides his time between writing and business consulting. He’s also a keen horseman and a very bad pianist. Both of these passions have been known to creep into his writing. Saxon’s Bane is his first novel.

Mr. Gudgion's attention to detail is astonishing. His love for English history and legend is obvious. I had to constantly remind myself that Saxon's Bane is the product of a writer who is new to the publishing world and not a much more well-known author. It is a towering achievement. I eagerly look forward to Mr. Gudgion's next foray as a fiction writer.
