Recommended Reading: The Commons by Matthew Hughes

Fitzhenry & Whiteside, 2007

From the catalogue:
For 100,000 years, Old Earth’s Institute for Historical Inquiry has mapped the collective unconscious of the human race. They have encountered all the archetypal figures - the Wise Man and the Fool, the Destroyer and the Redeemer - the “usual suspects” that populate the myths and legends at the back of the human mind.

And now young Guth Bandar suspects the collective unconscious has become aware of itself. Worse, it has an agenda. And worst of all, it can force Bandar to go deep into the darkest forests of the mind, where the only escape from madness is death.

About the author:
Matthew Hughes’s work has appeared frequently in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, and numerous Year’s Best anthologies. His previous novels include Fool’s Errant and Black Brillion. He lives in British Columbia.
