Phil Rickman / John Dee
Phil lives on the Welsh border where he writes and presents the book programme Phil the Shelf on BBC Radio Wales.


The Bones of Avalon is also a kind of prequel to Phil Rickman’s first Glastonbury novel, The Chalice.

Here’s Phil on what a bloody trial it was...

I never wanted to write an historical novel. I like contemporary situations, concise descriptions, and dialogue you can hear. John Dee, however, was tempting. Elizabeth I’s astrologer royal, adviser on the Hidden and occasional secret agent was regarded with suspicion in his day and has since been abused by some of the finest historians in the business. David Starkey is typical in considering him a con-man.
But I’ve always liked Dee and couldn’t believe nobody had yet made him the paranoid protagonist of a darkly atmospheric Tudor mystery.
So here it is, and I think it works. Dee’s the narrator. It’s 1560, he’s 32,
