Five full-length books by this legendary master of fantasy and terror!
Lord Dunsany is the man H. P. Lovecraft modeled his work on. Here's 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 praises 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 Tolkien's Middle Earth. The Reader's Guide describes his work as "of concise elegance. 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 comprehensive eBook edition. Over 2,000 pages in hardcover!
