|A further novel of Britain, set during the Roman invasion before
Christianity has asserted itself. Our Henry Treece titles were
first time paperback publications in England and have not been
reprinted since. David Britton discovered Treece in the late 1950s. One of his intentions when setting up Savoy Books was to bring
Treece to the attention of the new fantasy buying public created
by the success of J R R Tolkien and Robert E Howard. Second in Henry Treece's Celtic Tetralogy.
Introduction by Michael Moorcock, stencil illustrations by James Cawthorn.
Cover art by Michael Heslop.
See also Treece's Notes on Perception and Vision in The Revenant Zone.
A few copies of this title are still available.
"Henry Treece has the rare gift of writing about the ancient world as if he was native to it."
