The Cult of Relics is a new novel by Alan M. Kent (author of Proper Job, Charlie Curnow! and Electric Pastyland), presented in a bilingual format, with a Cornish-language translation, Devocyon dhe Greryow, by Nicholas Williams. The story is set in Western Britain in the mid-1990s just after the Gulf War, and tells of three extraordinary people: of the New-Age Traveller Jude Fox, of the American photojournalist Eddie Hopkins, and of the Cornish-born archaeologist Robert Bolitho.

The three characters discover a set of connections between them, stretching back to the early seventeenth century. Kent's intriguing story weaves together their disparate lives with that of the mysterious "Stranger", whose preservation of a curious holy relic becomes a focus for their collective need for communion and hope.
