"a variety of authors have created marvellous and menacing new monsters"

Inspired by eight historic sites that are in the care of English Heritage, a variety of authors have created marvellous and menacing new monsters. Fiona Mozley heads into the 'blinking wood' surrounding Carlisle Castle, where the leaves are like 'eyelids, fluttering, flickering'. In a wry, sly retelling of The Loathly Lady, King Arthur and Sir Gawain go on a quest to answer the question: 'What do women want?'
