    Well Space Pilgrims I think we've done it I think we have finally found me a favorite John Blackburn novel It doesn't have uite the gonzo gusto of Bury Him Darkly's ending It doesn't have uite the terror of Our Lady of Pain's bleakness It has a similar sort of rural mystery plot including some straight rehash moments such as a ship crash as Children of Night but isn't uite as ballsy with its cleverness But still for that lack of gonzo for that lack of over the top for that lack of smug cleverness we have what might be one of the best John Blackburn novels to just pick up hand to someone else and say Read this It is balanced than many of the others It's kooky science is still kooky but somehowplausible? That's not the right word but that's the first one that comes to mind It feels like a Proto Phil Rickman book with it's Welsh countryside and its old legends and its new disasters only 14 the size of a Rickman novel and with a tighter cast of characters It skirts the folk horror designation and probably should be considered an early ish example of that but with some science horror and political espionage elements tossed in Sure I twigged the surprise twist at least most of it somewhere around the 13 mark and then spent the next half of the book increasingly frustrated for I felt like it had been too telegraphed but was still being treated like a Deep Mysterytm This might be simply because I've now read something like 14 of Blackburn's total output in under a year so I have learned his cadences I suspect it's a bit too easy though Doesn't matter It is still clever and I like the idea that it sort of provides an escape room with many clues on the table from fairly early on Blackburn usually holds a few back until towards the end So here we have the story about a man who suffers the same nightmare over and over and his self defenestration an epidemic of unknown cause a popular model of airplane with a uniue and annoying sounding exhaust system an archaeological team made up of amateurs looking for a pre Gael civilization some lord and lady of the manor drama a retired judge who was writing a peculiar book but who got horribly murdered before he could finish it a suspected Nazi war criminal running a factory and a Welsh village afraid of what an old legend might mean if its true There's a subplot involving a youth hostel and another involving a miscarriage that are flavor than important each ties into the plot but each could have been dropped There's the sense of stalling after all the cards are played maybe the 23s mark though like I said you could guess most of it well before that In other words there's some fluff where true bloat is rare in Blackburn but none of it is offensively fluffy and feels like world building for the most part It's good Great even Shame it's so generally overlooked Valancourt hasn't touched it yet and it is generally overshadowed by the standards such as The Scent of New Mown Hay and Devil Daddy

    What do a factory run by a former Nazi polluting the waters off Northern Ireland sonic chem trails Russian industrial shenanigans AND a brooding ominous mountain in Wales have in common?John Blackburn does an admirable job spinning a tale that ties these threads together This has been my favorite title in Centipede Press Blackburn series
