An outlandish energy source is found ’neath a Welsh lake, a local girl goes missing, and a foundling Scotsman is coming into his own.
No Mór the Glen is J.R.E. Thorn’s upcoming debut novel. It is an ambitious work-in-progress in the speculative fiction genre, due for completion in 2019. No Mór the Glen skilfully draws from Thorn’s enamour of man’s earliest, ancient, imaginings in order to recreate a resonant literary work for our time. It cuts across different centuries, and cultures, as the first instalment of a planned series.
Reminds me of R.S. Thomas… authentic, interesting and valid it has a lot of quirky/creative use of language and a really good flow and build-up of energy and tension and a nice quick sudden release at the end – brilliant.
