Product Description

"Not only does any tale which crosshatches between this world andFaerie owe a Founder's Debt to Lord Dunsany, but the secondary worldcreated by J.R.R. Tolkien--from which almost all fantasylands havedevolved--also took shape and flower from Dunsany?s example." --TheEncyclopedia of Fantasy

Most fantasy enthusiasts consider Lord Dunsany one of the mostsignificant forces in modern fantasy; his influences have been observedin the works of H.P. Lovecraft, L. Sprague de Camp, Fritz Leiber, JackVance, and many other modern writers. The Book of Wonder is Dunsany athis peak of his talent. The stories here are a lush tapestry oflanguage, conjuring images of people, places, and things which cannotpossibly exist, yet somehow ring true. They are, in short, full ofwonder. Together with Dunsany's other major collections, A Dreamer'sTales and Tales of Three Hemispheres, they are a necessary part of anyfantasy collection
