Synopsis

Famed Anglo-Irish author, Lord Dunsany (1878-1957), was a short story writer, playwright, poet, essayist and autobiographer whose works earned him notoriety as one of the most significant contributors to the modern fantasy genre. His short stories, especially, were widely popular with audiences who enjoyed his formulated mythologies, his examination of the nature of time and human existence, and his satiric, and often anti-industrial, views on the relationship of humanity to nature. This twenty-nine-story edition contains A Dreamer's Tales (1910), one of Dunsany's earliest and best-known works, which is full of exotic and fantastic realms, creatures and lavish descriptions of the endless wonders that characterized Dunsany's work. Also included in this collection: Blagdaross, Where the Tides Ebb and Flow, Bethmoora, Poor Old Bill, The Hashish Man, and The Day of the Poll and other tales, many set in the Land of Dreams and other fantasy worlds.
