Wylding Hall

'“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'
