Description


During the beginning of the 20th century, Lord Dunsany was considered one of the greatest and most imaginative authors of fantasy fiction alive. Edward John Plunkett, by his actual name, the Baron of Dunsany remains one of the classics of modern fantasy literature, his greatest work remaining The King of Elfland’s Daughter, and Plunkett himself being the inspiration for numerous skilled authors that came after him, including giants such as H.P. Lovecraft, J.R.R. Tolkien and Arthur C. Clarke.

The Book of Wonders is Lord Dunsany’s fifth collection of beautifully written fantasy stories that he wrote, each more enchanting and diverse than the one before. Ranging from whimsical to intense and even mythological tales, Dunsany’s stories are extremely varied, some of them humorous, while others are chilling enough to be reminiscent of Edgar Allen Poe.

In this amazing book, you’ll find many fascinating characters from various legends and myths that are portrayed in a unique and elegant the author. You’ll come face to face with sphinxes, centaurs, feuding idols and even a way by magical window. You will also find stories like “The Coronation of Mr. Thomas Shap” where Mr. Shap tries to escape his unfulfilling life through the strange world of dreams, or “How Nuth Would Have Practiced His Art Upon the Gnoles” – the tale of a master thief and his exciting adventures.

There is never a dull moment with Lord Dunsany’s tales that will immerse you in a world of wonder where suddenly everything is possible!

The humor, overall demeanor and style of some of these stories will be reminiscent of even some of the newer fantasy novels and tales you may have read. A true classic, Dunsany was a visionary of his time and an author who redefined the world of fantasy literature for generations to come, these extremely short fourteen tales being a testament to his remarkable skill and rich imagination.
