This is that most unusual of things ... a philosophical and spiritual novel, a katabasis and nekyia, venturing into the Land of the Dead, into the accursed world, into Capernaum. This is an exploration of Pandemonium, the city of all the demons. This is a journey to the magical Mistletoe world of Doggerland, the once and future realm. It is a Red Book, a chronicle of a descent into madness. It dispenses with many novelistic conventions in order to reach the heart of darkness.The Mistletoe Murders is a psychological and philosophical murder mystery drawing upon the great Arthurian tales, cast in a Nietzschean light.Heaven is on the far side of hell. To get there, you must travel through your nightmares. You must confront the profoundest archetypes. Those we have chosen are those of the world of King Arthur.Come and meet Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot, Merlin, Nimue, the Black Knight, the Green Knight, Mordred, the Fisher King, and many others. Venture into Camelot and the Grail Castle and find the Holy Grail. But you must endure the Wasteland - the end of hope - before you have any prospect of encountering the Grail.You must travel through the barren land to lift the curse that has brought universal misery. Only the hero can succeed. Only the hero can confront and overcome the physical and spiritual wounds that are infecting everything.All heroes must cross the threshold. They must leave the ordinary world and travel to the extraordinary world, where they will risk it all. They must leave this world for the Otherworld.What price will you pay? Would you risk it all to win it all? This is not a whodunnit, whatdunnit or howdunnit. It's a whydunnit. It's food for the brain. As Sherlock Holmes said, "I cannot live without brain-work. What else is there to live for?"
