Read full description of the books The Book of Wonder:Most fantasy enthusiasts consider Lord Dunsany one of the most significant forces in modern fantasy; his influences have been observed in the works of H.P. Lovecraft, L. Sprague de Camp, Fritz Leiber, Jack Vance & many other modern writers. The Book of Wonder is Dunsany at his peak. The stories here are a lush tapestry of language, conjuring images of people, places & things which cannot possibly exist, yet somehow ring true. They are, in short, full of wonder. Together with Dunsany's other major collections, A Dreamer's Tales & Tales of Three Hemispheres, they are a necessary part of any fantasy collection.
"Not only does any tale which crosshatches between this world & Faerie owe a Founder's Debt to Lord Dunsany, but the secondary world created by J.R.R. Tolkien--from which almost all fantasylands have devolved--also took shape & flower from Dunsany's example."--The Encyclopedia of Fantasy
The Bride of the Man Horse; Distressing Tale of Thangobrind the Jeweler; The House of the Sphinx; Probable Adventure of the Three Literary Men; The Injudiscious Prayers of Pombo the Idolater; The Loot of Bombasharna; Miss Cubbridge
