Collected Folk Tales

"This is a book to wonder at" Nicholas Tucker
The Independent

"There is something of the national treasure about Alan Garner. He has been writing excellent books for more than 50 years...He was, I suspect, the first person to write what now we would describe as urban fantasies. His prose at its best (and it is pretty much always at its best) seems inevitable, and pushes reviewers into using similes that compare it to rocks and gorges and unchanging natural formations." Neil Gaiman
The Guardian
