"The single most beautiful, solid, unearthly, and unjustifiably forgotten novel of the twentieth century …a little golden miracle of a book
." — Neil Gaiman
Lud-in-the-Mist is a flourishing town and the capital of the Free State of Dorimare, located at the confluence of two rivers, the Dapple and the Dawl. Bordering to the west and said to flow from the Dapple is Fairyland. Dorimare law has banished Fairyland inhabitants and forbidden all fairy things, but someone is smuggling fairy fruit into the state, causing addiction, fits of delusion, and possibly murder. Despite being one of the first books published in the fantasy genre, Lud-in-the-Mist
has received surprisingly little attention. Hope Mirrlees's 1926 novel is an enchanting narrative intertwined with folklore and the magical realm of the fairy folk, mysterious intrigue, and rural superstitions. A delightful discovery for lovers of fantasy.
