Product Description

A Dreamer's Tales

Here are more tales of the exotic and the wonderful, by the greatest fantasist of the Twentieth Century. Lord Dunsany (rhymes with "rainy") ranged long distances beyond the fields we know, into the lands of Dream, returning with reports that are fantastic, sparkling, and very enjoyable. Here are jeweled cities and ruined ones, sailors and kings of Thebes, quiet rivers and the cold surface of the Moon. Herein are the stories of the tribe that invented first a weapon and then a god; of the city that, stone by stone, went mad; of the man who disovered the secret of the universe and remembered some of it...

Dunsany's prose, always scintillant yet always sharply focused, has influenced the work of fantasy writers during his life and after. His name has become an adjective. His work has become a standard. It will delight the reader over and over again.

Originally published in 1910, long out of print, A Dreamer's Tales contains sixteen examples of the high strange art of Dunsanian short fantasy.

The cover for this edition is by fantasy legend Tim Kirk.
