About the author

Malcolm McNeill was born in England and grew up in Scotland. The Beginning Woods is his first book.

"McNeill has created a fabulous universe packed full of wonder and terror. The Beginning Woods has earned its place on a shelf with Gormenghast and The Princess Bride. I loved every word and was envious of quite a few. It opened my eyes wide and quickened my heart. A modern classic: rich, funny and terrifying." —Eoin Colfer, New York Times bestselling author of Artemis Fowl

"Highly original and beguiling début that promises magic, terror and the dark menace of fairytales" —The Bookseller

“Complex, playful, philosophical, with mysterious vanishings and censorship of dreams.” –Imogen Russel-Williams, The Guardian

"A dazzling and beguiling tale . . . A mesmerizing new voice, and a book that deserves to vanish off the bookshop shelves." —Herald (Scotland)
