Synopsis

A WONDER FILLED TREASURY OF DUNSANY'S BEST BOOKS! Here, in one inexpensive eBook are five full-length books by this legendary master of fantasy and terror, the man H. P. Lovecraft modeled his work by. Now is your chance to read his best-loved works, The Book of Wonder, A Dreamer's Tales, Fifty-One Tales, The Gods of Pegana, and the Sword of Welleran and Other Stories. The Reader's Guide to Fantasy hails Lord Dunsany (1897-1957) for his "ornate, art-nouveau fantasy--of mythical worlds. His were the first set in wholly created mythical worlds and paved the way for Tolkeihn's Middle Earth. The Reader's Guide calls his work "of concise elegance--bejeweled with all the exotica of the East. "Typical are 'The Hoard of the Gibbelins," in which it is told how the Gibbelins, "who eat nothing less good than man," protect their hoard of wealth from an epitomal hero, and 'The Distressing Tale of Thangobrind the Jewller,' the hero of whom has an encounter with Hlo Hlo, the spider idol." Both are included in this low priced eBook edition. Over 200 pages in hardcover!
