From official release/information:
John Connolly taps into the nightmares of our childhood with his new novel The Book of Lost Things, released this month in hard cover by Hodder. I'm delighted to have a review of this release elsewhere in this issue by British fantasy author Juliet McKenna, who we're delighted to welcome to the review team here at SFRevu.
"'Once upon a time, there was a boy who lost his mother...' As twelve-year-old David takes refuge from his grief in the myths and fairy tales so beloved of his dead mother, he finds the real world and the fantasy world begin to blend. That is when bad things start to happen. That is when the Crooked Man comes. And, David is violently propelled into a land populated by heroes, wolves and monsters in his quest to find the legendary Book of Lost Things."
