        Albion s Dream appeared in 1990, Red Die nearly twenty years later and Shadowborne in 2012 Treetime, a kids book, came out in 1997 I spent the 1980s in Greece and have lived in Turkey for much of the last twenty years Before all that I was a Dorset lad, and apart from Treetime my books are set wholly or partly in Dorset There s been an element of exile in these long sojourns abroad and perhaps writing about the rivers and tracks and woodlands of the Black Vale as they were fifty or a hundred and fifty years ago is my way of keeping in touch with the loveliest of English counties, where my parents first met, in 1941 he a pilot based at Tarrant Rushton and she a radar operator based in Swanage Whether the story of them having first made contact on the wireless is truth or myth I ve never known.Albion s Dream was written at The Roundhouse, which we built ourselves, in northern Euboia The first version of Red Die was written in a cottage in the New Forest and rewritten in Ankara Then there was a London version, and another one written near Beckford s curious abbey in Wiltshire, and one or two , written at my present home in Anatolia.For a dozen years during the late nineties and early noughties I worked for the UN as a project consultant and am deeply grateful to that vast, cumbersome, irritating and irreplaceable organizaton for the opportunity to work in some of the most astonishingly beautiful places you can imagine Vietnam by the Chinese border, Uganda under the Mountains of the Moon and Nepal without cars.I hope that some of these places will find a way of cropping up in future writings.My books are distributed by the Sundial Press sundialpress , a small and friendly publishing house with a list where a handful of living authors are lucky enough to rub shoulders with the likes of Llewelyn Powys and AE Coppard Anyone contacting me via the website will get a proper reply, even if not at once.

    1. Before Harry Potter there was Albion's Dream. Not condescending, not at all dumbed down, this short novel is packed with meaning and excitement, and is enjoyable for adults and kids alike. Albion's Dream is a wonderful journey about a mystical game and the child who finds it. One read will leave you yearning for more. I have read it every year since I first discovered it at the public library, when I was a teenager, and I consistently find some new and deeper meaning in some subtle piece of pros [...]


    2. Pure nostalgio. I used to check this book out of the library all the time, so I was very happy to track down a copy years later - albeit in English and without the lovely pencil drawings I remembered. I like the magical realism of this book, coupled with the English mythology. I just kinda wish it included more about the game so I could play it myself!


    3. Although probably considered a juvenile fantasy,There is a mythic struggle between good and evil going on here. The board game Is complex and chilling. Now I have to find the other books.



    4. Lo estoy leyendo con mis primitas y les esta gustando mucho. Y a mi también, es un muy buen libro juvenil.Update: Pues a pesar de ser relativamente largo para ellas y el tiempo extra que toma leer en voz alta, lo terminamos rapido porque estaban muy emocionadas. Y con razón, porque es un gran libro que podría atrapar a jóvenes y adultos por igual.Tiene aventura, misterio, suspenso, momentos sobrenaturales y un muy buen protagonista. El juego de mesa que aparece en el libro es bastante creepy [...]


    5. A young adult novel with mythical themes. The main character finds an old family game, and begins to realize that it holds the power to alter reality. It's a suspenseful, well-paced story. My friend John pointed out one of the great things about this story. It has a good-vs-evil dynamic, but it remains rooted in a specific place (post-war Britain) and doesn't require a cosmic fate-of-the-universe scale to sustain its tension like so many others (Pullman, Tolkein). Well worth reading, and there a [...]


    6. There is a game which has been passed down through generations of a family. Playing this game alters reality so that the fate of certain pieces within the game affects the fate of certain pieces within life. This book inspired me hugely about making games when I was a teenager. I'm now rereading it to my daughter.


    7. Great story about the power and magic of myths set (where else?) in the idyllic English countryside. The writing is perfect for a children's novel - simple and accessible, but without condescension. Unlike so many of the books which populate its genre, Albion's Dream is neither overly simplistic nor grandiose. I'm not exactly sure what to make of the ending.




    8. My one regret about this book (which I've read several times over the years) was that it ended exactly as if it would be followed by a sequel, but Norman sadly never wrote anything else.
