Alfred DunsanyISBN: 014243776X; 9780142437766;
Book Description 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.
