Now, terrible news from the north suggests that someone or some thing is once again preying upon the northern lands, threatening to once again darken the lives of those whose forebears still remember the horrific past. Now, a small, motley band faces a daunting challenge. Led by a brave warrior and a visionary priest, they have finally reached the land to the north. They have seen wonders and endured terrifying experiences, barely escaping from a dizzying series of perils, magical and otherwise. But the direst perils lie before them as they approach the evil that has risen again, its dread power terrorizing and enslaving all who oppose it. Finally, the Wanderer, fated to face the ultimate test, will confront his destiny. A world and its trembling masses await the outcome''

''many generations ago was destroyed the arctic stronghold of Drauglir. Five hundred years later, rumours spread of the evil demigod's second coming, with terrible consequences for the world of Lindormyn. In the remote northern town of Nordwas a ramshackle group is assembled by the ambitious warrior Nibulus, under the guidance of a mage-priest, to set off on the long and perilous journey back to Melhus to ensure that Drauglir is properly despatched this time round. This quest includes two foreign mercenaries, three bickering priests, a young esquire ...and, last but not least, Bolldhe the unsociable 'wanderer'. Their eventful progress through a desolate terrain embroils them regularly with a wide array of races, creatures, giants and sorcerers - and with terrifying adventures which will affect each of them differently''

The figure at the heart of Talking Man -- who does not talk -- seems at the story's beginning to be nothing more than a bemusedly eccentric rural Kentuckian with a knack for repairing motors; as the novel develops into a quest west and then north across a USA more and more radically transformed the further the search proceeds, the talking man takes on qualities of Trickster and Redeemer, and eventually seems to contain the world's reality in his hands. The tale closes back home, but home is now an American South changed magically into a clement Utopia'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

''author of many novels whose ambience of horror derives from a calculated use of material from several genres, including sf: he tended to use themes from espionage and thriller fiction to buttress and ultimately provide explanations for tales whose effects were fundamentally gothic horror and fantasy. Ex-Nazis often cropped up in these books, and even in later stories, like THE FACE OF THE LION (1976), which again (characteristically) deals with abominable disease, loathsome though by now rather elderly SS officers make their dutiful bows'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

Young adult sf novel.

''aliens are among us and they are going to save us from ourselves. Whether we like it or not. Only gradually revealing this familiar premise, Terence Blacker weaves a deliciously mysterious and suspenseful story about Thomas Wisdom, who - like Adam in Robert Cormier's classic I Am the Cheese and Jonas in Lois Lowry's The Giver - begins to notice little hints that there is a secret at the heart of his perfect family and ends by uncovering a worldwide conspiracy. Unlike Adam's mental-hospital prison and Jonah's regimented society, Thomas's world is ordinary and comfortable, and life with his nice parents and kind big sister is excellent. Except he has begun to wonder if his too perfect family might be concealing something. ''They're CIA agents!'' concludes his outrageously geeky friend Gip, and proves it by finding a transmitter in the toilet tank and a mysterious page of numbers hidden in Thomas's father's computer files. Thomas is skeptical, until he goes with his family on holiday to California and has a strange quasi-religious experience in the desert that shakes up his ideas about what's going on. And then another revelation about himself shocks him to the core. But Thomas, unlike Adam, has free will in the situation. Who are these beings who call themselves ''angels''- his so-called father, mother, sister, other people in his life, even the dog? And how can Thomas fight against this pervasive niceness with its overbearing plans for humanity?''

Richards Press: London. 1947.
Fifth printing.
Hardcover.
First published in 1908, collects five stories of Blackwood's sychic detective: ''a sometimes overtalkative character who resembles Stoker's Van Helsing, Le Fanu's Dr. Hesselius, and especially Hodgson's Dr. Carnacki'' (Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 3-32).

''(1869-1951) UK writer and broadcaster, a leading exponent of supernatural fiction in the early 20th century; now best remembered for his ghost stories, in his day he was recognized also for his pantheistic fantasies and his books for children. Most of his fiction was derived from personal or mystical experience. AB's knowledge of occultism came from several years as an active member of the Golden Dawn (to which he was introduced by W.B. Yeats), prior to which he had studied Eastern wisdoms (he was a Buddhist in early life) and Theosophy. But his greatest inspiration - he said - came from a proximity to nature which imbued him with an enhanced consciousness, heightening his awareness of preternatural existence. His third book, JOHN SILENCE, PHYSICIAN EXTRAORDINARY (1908), was his most successful, and the income from it allowed him to become a full-time writer. It introduced the eponymous Occult Detective, and both popularized and gave credentials to that theme. John Silence was a doctor of the spirit who had studied for years to master the paranormal. The stories are mostly about possession, of either person or place. One series story omitted from the collection, ''A Victim of Higher Space'' (1914 Occult Review), was included in Day and Night Stories (1917); it showed his interest in other dimensions'' (Mike Ashley/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).
