About this title


Arthurian legend collides with Main Street, USA, in Gene Wolfe's classic fantasy adventure. Castleview, Illinois, got its name from occasional sightings of a phantom castle on stormy nights--a place where the barrier between past and present is weak and strange things happen.

From Library Journal:

An unexplained murder, a house with many secrets, and a phantom castle that haunts the midwestern town of Castleview lead Will Shields and his family across the borders of reality into a world inhabited by beings out of legend. Wolfe's ( There Are Doors, LJ 11/15/88) deceptively simply prose masks a wealth of complexity in his latest real-world fantasy. Recommended.
