Robert Holdstock (1948-2009)

UK ed, with great Alan Lee cover
It's hard to believe that Robert Holdstock passed away ten years ago today, on November 29th, 2009.  I loved most of his Mythago Wood series, but especially liked the second volume, Lavondyss, which I thought the finest fantasy novel published in the 1980s.  In honor of his memory, I'm re-reading one of his great short stories,"The Ragthorn" (with Garry Kilworth). If you've never read Holdstock, give that story a try.
