"To the truly imaginative he is a talisman and a key unlocking rich storehouses of dreams." (H P Lovecraft)
Dreamworlds, magic; faerie - an entrancing collection from 'One of the greatest writers of this century' (Arthur C Clarke).
Of all the weavers of magic, there is none like Lord Dunsany. During his long lifetime he wrote more than 60 books including novels, plays, poetry collections and most memorably, innumerable exotic and fantastical short stories.
Here is the very best of Dunsany's extraordinarily evocative tales of Faerie, of dreamworlds and of magic. Considered a major influence on J R R Tolkien and Ursula Le Guin, these are some of the most beguiling fantasies in the English language, including the complete contents of Time and the Gods, The Book of Wonder, The Sword of Welleran and The Last Book of Wonder.
