All the Books Set in Glastonbury

From  Vicki Steward’s  blog Normal For Glastonbury: Life in the Oddest Town in England, a list of all the novels set in Glastonbury.

There some Phil Rickman titles there that I had missed, possibly because they were categorized as YA and published under a different name.

Marion Zimmer Bradley, of course, Faye Weldon, and lots of others. And the heavyweight, John Cowper Powys’ A Glastonbury Romance. Unlike Vicki Steward, I  have read it. It is odd and complex, but so was he.

  1. Can’t remember the reason why, but I remember reading John Cowper Powys’ A Glastonbury Romance years ago. One of the strangest books I’ve ever read and I’ve read a lot of strange books. 🙂

    • You know, after reading your 2014 post about A Glastonbury Romance, I may just go back and reread it again. It was very complex and confusing to me and maybe it’s the complexity that’s confusing me, although I thought his ending was strange. Anyhow. Thanks for reminding me about this book.
