Clive on First Tales

"These two stories represent the two essential structures of fantastique literature. The Wood on the Hill is about an incursion of unearthly elements into an approximation of our world. The Candle in the Cloud is about a journey taken by people from our world into another reality. Yin and Yang, if you like. Forces pulling in opposing directions but to achieve the same end: Revelation."
