The first annotated edition of the Irish master of fantasy, "who imagined colors, ceremonies and incredible processions that never passed before the eyes of Edgar Allan Poe or of De Quincey" (W. B. Yeats). Lord Dunsany has gained a cult following for his influence on modern fantasy literature, including such authors as J. R. R. Tolkien and H. P. Lovecraft. This unique collection of short stories ranges over five decades, including the entire Gods of Pegana and such notable works as "Idle Days on the Yann" as well as several about the garrulous traveler Joseph Jorkens and the outrageous murder tale "The Two Bottles of Relish." Throughout, the stories are united by Dunsany's cosmic vision, his impeccable and mellifluous prose, and his distinctively Irish sense of whimsy.

About the Author

Baron Dunsany was born in London in 1878, the scion of an Anglo-Irish family that could trace its ancestry to the twelfth century. During his life Dunsany distinguished himself as both an author and a dramatist, he once had five plays running concurrently on Broadway, and is now recognised as a leading figure in the development of modern fantasy literature. His works include The Book of Wonder (1912), Plays of Gods and Men (1917) and The Curse of the Wise Woman (1933). S.T. Joshi is a freelance writer and editor who has previously edited Penguin Classics editions of The Thing on the Doorstep and Other Weird Stories (2001) and Ancient Sorceries and Other Strange Stories (2002). Amongst his other published titles are Lord Dunsany: Master of the Anglo-Irish Imagination (1995) and The Modern Weird Tale (2001). He currently lives in Seattle, Washington.

Reviews

"No one has ever approached [Dunsany's] skill in suggesting, so flawlessly and with such economy of means, that the world is not exactly as we suppose." "Dunsany's best stories remain unique: nobody else has ever been able to capture his visions....S.T. Joshi, a biographer of Dunsany and an expert in the Weird, has given us an excellent introduction and notes." --Ursula K. Le Guin, Los Angeles Times Book Review "Dunsany''s best stories remain unique: nobody else has ever been able to capture his visions....S.T. Joshi, a biographer of Dunsany and an expert in the Weird, has given us an excellent introduction and notes." --Ursula K. Le Guin, Los Angeles Times Book Review
