How Grim Was My Valley (Paperback)
Robert wakes up on the Welsh side of the Severn Bridge with no memory of who he is or how he got there. Determined to reclaim his identity, he embarks on an odyssey through the country of Wales, bearing witness to the stories both the people and the land itself feel moved to tell him. Every new tale brings him one step closer to learning the truth about himself.
John Llewellyn Probert has written a gripping romp of a book, a portmanteau novel steeped in the myths and secret tales of his native Wales. A compendium of the sinister that draws the reader inexorably forward, as we share in Robert's quest to discover the truth, wherever that may lead.
The novel features an introduction by master of horror Ramsey Campbell.
"Well done to it and its author He brings a feast of wonders and horrors and I'm just the greeter at the door. Welcome and be seated, if you aren't already. Here comes the first course, and before long you'll be replete with imagination." - Ramsey Campbell in his introduction.
How Grim Was My Valley features several full page internal illustrations by cover artist Elena Betti.
