Welcome!


Welcome to the web site for Robert Holdstock, an award-winning fantasy and science fiction writer, who was best known for his Mythago Wood Cycle of books.

Robert Holdstock was born in Kent in 1948, and passed away in November 2009, just four months after the publication of Avilion, the long-awaited, and sadly final, return to Ryhope Wood.

Here you can read Rob’s biography, peruse his list of writings, along with the honours he garnered over the course of his career. The Gallery page features a number of photos of Rob over the years.

Personal reminiscences and memories of Rob are collected on the Tributes section of the web site.

Sarah and Rob

Rob is sadly-missed by his friends and fans, and especially Sarah Biggs, his partner and literary executor.

Three acres of the Woodland Trust’s Victory Wood, along with an oak tree and a bench, are dedicated to Rob Holdstock with love and affection from his family and friends. The details on how to visit this site is listed here.

In 2012 the British Fantasy Society recognised Robert Holdstock’s legacy by naming the ‘Best Fantasy Novel’ category after him. The first Robert Holdstock Award was announced at that year’s award ceremony. You can read the list of all the nominees and winners on this page.
