From the Inside Flap:

In 1918 a young American soldier wounded in World War I comes to Gatford to escape his troubled past. The pastoral English village seems the perfect spot to heal his wounded body and soul. The neighboring woods are said to be haunted by capricious, even malevolent spirits, but Alex White considers these old wives' tales. Or are they? A frightening encounter in the forest leads Alex into the arms of Magda, an alluring red-haired widow rumored to be a witch. She warns Alex to steer clear of the wood and the perilous faerie kingdom it borders, but Alex cannot help himself. Drawn to the woods he finds love, danger and wonders that will forever change him. And, he will face the wrath of Magda for not heeding her advice.Other Kingdoms is a new genre-defying novel by Richard Matheson. Published by TOR in April 2011 as a mass market paperback, this Gauntlet Press signed limited edition contains the first unedited draft of the novel. Included are numerous deleted scenes, found here in their entirety, including what could very well be one of the most graphic scenes of violence he has ever written. This unedited version also includes references Matheson makes to a stroke he experienced while writing the novel, which were also left out of the TOR edition.
