AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This is an invitation. New lands are being created. Memory, now and the future are pouring onto the internet. Reality is splintering into shards of mirror and a casual, congenial bear is showing up at people's houses. If you've had a bad day at school, he'll take you back to where it all went wrong. Or he may invite you to the woods - a place of myth, transgression and discovery, where outcasts can start again - but with grave consequences.'

'In the first of the trilogy, "The Fag from Zagreb", Jeremy, comes home at twilight to find the house empty except for the Apocalypse Bear preparing his after school snack. In the second, "Back to the Cafeteria", Sonya is trying to make sense of her failed marriage by returning to adolescence and unpicking the high school holy trinity of popularity, cool and beauty. "Into the Woods" brings the two characters together under the benign malevolence of the Apocalypse Bear.'
