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.
Personal reminiscences and memories of Rob are collected on the Tributes section of the web site.
Rob is sadly-missed by his friends and fans, and especially Sarah Biggs, his partner and literary executor.
