Every now and then you hear about a labour of love, something that has taken year’s to come to fruition, something you’ve heard people talk about but never had a chance to see yourself. Well, that’s the case with Robert Hood’s new novel Fragments of a Broken Land: Valarl Undead. My dear pal Jack Dann read and raved about it years ago, describing it as “one of the strangest and most interesting visions to come out of the modern horror/fantasy genres”, and even published a section of it as stand-alone story in his classic Dreaming Again anthology.
Well, after too many years, it has just been published quietly by The Borgo Press in the United States. If you love dark fantasy, consider downloading a sample and checking it out.
