Editorial Reviews

Review

“By turns comic, elegiac, sexy, romantic, melancholy, and downright chilling, Wylding Hall sweeps us along from swinging London to the terrifying gates of Faerie and into the present—where all spells must be paid for.” —Ellen Kushner, World Fantasy Award–winning author of Swordspoint

“For fans of ’70s Folk-Rock . . . Fairport [Convention] in a parallel gothic horror universe, with a touch of Nick Drake thrown in. Skillfully written and well-researched novella from Elizabeth Hand.” —Richard Thompson, guitarist and songwriter
 
“[Wylding Hall] is not a novel of thrills and puzzles, but a lengthy spell itself. . . . Hand is an expert at building mood and atmosphere in ways that you don’t realize until you feel it around you.” —SF Signal
 
“[A] luminous evocation of a period and place . . . The novella gains a strange power apart from its rather restrained supernatural manifestations, a power driven by the sense of lost dreams that has always driven Hand’s best fiction.” —Locus
 
“Somewhere up in rock ’n’ roll heaven, Janis Joplin, Brian Jones, Nick Drake and Sandy Denny are all tossing back their drinks, passing a spliff, and recounting how much they enjoyed reading Elizabeth Hand’s shimmering new supernatural novel, Wylding Hall. . . . By turns melancholic and joyous, dark and incandescent, this always-surprising tale is full of heart, music and wonder.” —Paul Di Filippo, author of The Steampunk Trilogy
 
Wylding Hall is a true surreal phantasmagoria, with music and all the accoutrements of the world of rock-and-roll set off by a wonderful admixture of the gothic supernatural. Treat it like the most exciting getaway in a truly enchanting setting.”  —Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, author of Hôtel Transylvania

About the Author

Elizabeth Hand flunked out of college a couple of years after seeing Patti Smith perform and became involved in the nascent punk scenes in DC and New York. From 1979 to 1986 she worked at the Smithsonian Institution's National Air & Space Museum. She was eventually readmitted to university to study cultural anthropology and received her BA. She is the author of many novels, including Winterlong, Waking the Moon, Glimmering, Mortal Love, Illyria, and Radiant Days, as well as three collections of stories, including the recent Saffron and Brimstone. Her fiction has received the Nebula, World Fantasy, Mythopeoic, Tiptree, and International Horror Guild Awards, and her novels have been chosen as notable books by both the New York Times and the Washington Post. She has also been awarded a Maine Arts Commission Fellowship. A regular contributor to the Washington Post Book World and the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, she lives with her family on the coast of Maine.
