Many, many years ago I was on a King Arthur reading kick. I researched until I could get my hands on any book about the topic, non-fiction and fiction. That research led me to two books called The Cross and Sword and The Sword is Forged by Evangeline Walton. Then I found her Mabinogian Tetralogy which is a retelling of Welsh Mythology. These were some of the best books I have ever read. (I also read her book Witch House.)
Miss Walton lived from 1907 - 1996 and I thought I had read everything she had written (minus some short stories).
I walked into the bookstore to find a present for someone and as I was browsing I spotted this!
Inside the book they had a link for Evangeline Walton and here is the information on She Walks in Darkness.
"...Tachyon Publications has just released Evangeline Walton’s novel , a kind of Gothic thriller written in the 1960s. Tachyon has done a splendid job packaging it, with an excellent cover by Thomas Canty, an introduction by Paul di Filippo, and blurbs by Tim Powers and Patricia McKillip. There is also a short afterword by me about the background of the manuscript."
A favorite author PLUS a Gothic thriller? Serendipitious to say the least!
