A Scottish author who breaks all the rules of fantasy writing with a bravura sense of place and dislocation. No wizards or spells or quests are to be found in his mesmerizing series The Book of All Hours, the 2nd volume of which, INK rewrites history through a drunken maze while taking the reader  through a landslide journey into wonder.   Lovereading view... When reality is written on skin, only blood will do as ink’ The second book in the groundbreaking literary fantasy series that began with Vellum, which was one of the most astonishing SF novels of 2005. Challenging is not a strong enough word for this harrowing second book in the Book of All Hours trilogy; the complexity of the writing is a direct reflection of the protagonists' predicaments. Requires focus and undisturbed windows of reading opportunity (e.g. flight to Oz or similar) to indulge and appreciate fully the brilliance of the tale and its parallels to our own place in the firmament.
