I have just finished a great book, The Stone Tide ; a heady mix of fiction and CNF, by the guy that runs Unofficial Britain . The writing is sharp and witty and takes the reader on a dark, crazy journey to the end of the world, centred on a move to a tumbledown house in Hastings.
I think you should read it. Gareth has written an excellent book about grief and loss.
It is available from Influx Press.
