|Bardskull, a powerful fusion of memoir and myth, is the record of three journeys made in the year before he turned fifty. This is not a book about myth or story. It is a sequence of incantations and a series of battles. For each of the three journeys, Martin walks alone into a forest in the heart of Dartmoor and waits.
This book can be read as a fable, as a memoir, as autofiction, as an attempt to undomesticate myth.
Says Martin: “I’m truly delighted to share news on this upcoming work I’ve embarked on with John Mitchinson and Unbound Books. This is proving the most remarkable journey. Now we need help to finish it.
“Your support to help us create this book would be fabulous – there’s all manner of rewards on offer – uncorrected proofs, an original page of manuscript, even Bardskull cider in an incendiary small batch!”
