INTRODUCTION

Strangers, gods and monsters

Strangers, gods and monsters are the central characters of my story. Theirfavourite haunts are those phantasmal boundaries where maps run out, ships slip moorings and navigators click their compasses shut. No man’s land. Land’s end. Out there, as the story goes, ‘where the wild things are’. These figures of Otherness occupy the frontier zone where reason falters and fantasies flourish.
