Mythago Wood is a fantasy novel written by Robert Holdstock that was published in the United Kingdom in 1984.

The full-length novel retained the same name and was subsequently released, beginning a series of novels referred to collectively as the "Mythago Wood cycle" or "Ryhope Wood series".

Famous quotes containing the word wood:

    It is remarkable what a value is still put upon wood even in this age and in this new country, a value more permanent and universal than that of gold. After all our discoveries and inventions no man will go by a pile of wood. It is as precious to us as it was to our Saxon and Norman ancestors. If they made their bows of it, we make our gun-stocks of it.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
