An influential fantasy writer and a key figure in the Irish literary renaissance, Edward J. M. D. Plunkett, the eighteenth Baron Dunsany (1878-1957) produced a trove of gems of the imagination. The 12 stories here are some of his best. They will take you on a remarkable journey to places that sometimes seem soft and pleasant, sometimes bleak and ominous — but always surprising.
Ten magnificent illustrations by S. H. Simes, perfectly reflecting Dunsany’s mood, accompany
such inventive tales as "The Highwayman," "In the Twilight," "The Ghosts," "The Lord of Cities," "The Doom of La Traviata," and the title piece. A delight for lovers of fantasy, the volume will enchant readers of folk tales and science fiction as well.
Unabridged republication of the edition published by George Allen & Sons, London, 1908.
