Temple of Living Lore…

Maiden Castle


“Of course, once you have written one book,

the next one is easy…”


It was true that we still had things we wanted to say,

and some things which we had thought might make it into the first book

but didn’t, would naturally need to go into the next one…


As one fan later commented, “It has a different feel.”

Which it does.

And, although we were doing the same things,

the focus had shifted slightly, to incorporate that body

of lore, and legend, and tales, which exist, and have always existed

to show us the way to plot a meaningful course

through our Blessed Isle’s real history.


We did not realise it at the time

but it was merely the second phase

of a continuing three-fold process…



Stuart France & Sue Vincent

Unwittingly drawn into the mysterious and magical landscape of The Initiate, Don and Wen pondered the visual language of symbols, stumbling across revelations and realisations that would alter their perception of the age-old stories they thought they knew… tales that entwine across the tapestry of time.

A hilltop steeped in tragedy, a child whose eyes see too much… a Word-Weaver’s birth into darkness… strange forms shimmering on the edge of vision. They learned to walk the Living Land, listening to the whispers of Earth memory and the ghosts of the most ancient past. And from those tales, another line of communication opens as they explore the folklore, legends, and traditional tales handed down, from heart to heart, over the millennia.

As the two friends travel between the sacred sites of Albion, they discover stories that tell how the leys were made, the true origins of the hillforts, and the reason why Father Fish had breakfast in Slug Town.

Striding across this landscape of myth are the giants. From Cerne Abbas to the top of the Beanstalk, from Camelot to the Castle of Maidens, how and why is their presence stamped on the Living Lore of the land by their seven-league boots?

Join Don and Wen as the adventure continues, unravelling its mysteries and the magical relationship between Albion and its people.

  1. Catching up on these 🙂 The problem with Kindle is losing track of the ones I’ve downloaded (unfortunately it’s an out of sight out of mind thing, which I’m puzzled about because this seems to be unique between me and e-readers).
    The haiku book on the other hand is due in my physical mail box tomorrow — Yippee !!!
