From a foreword by David Langford
In The Wood Beyond the World, a sea voyage separates the more fantastic realms from the hero Walter's mundane home town, though the land of the Wood sends visions even there -- of the land's witchy Mistress, her enslaved Maid, and a hideous, savagely energetic dwarf servitor. Walter defies all advice and reason, abandons his fellows, and sets off through mountains and wastes to the Wood where he can meet the mysterious three the stage is set for triangular games of love and power.
