Time and the Gods

Time and the Gods

Dreamworlds, magic; faerie – an entrancing collection from One of the greatest writers of this century’ Arthur C Clarke

Of all the weavers of magic, there is none like Lord Dunsany. During his long lifetime he wrote more than sixty books including novels, plays, poetry collections most memorably, innumerable exotic and fantastical short stories.

Here is the very best of Dunsany’s extraordinarily evocative tales of Faerie, of dreamworlds and of magic. Considered a major influence on J R R Tolkien and Ursula Le Guin, these are some of the most beguiling fantasies in the English language, including the complete contents of Time and the Gods, The Book of Wonder, The Sword of Welleran, The Gods of Pegana and The Last Book of Wonder.

Reviews

To the truly imaginative he is a talisman and a key unlocking rich storehouses of dreams
H P Lovecraft
Lord Dunsany's work is immensely significant as well as enjoyable even today
Katharine Kerr
One of the greatest writers of this century
Arthur C Clarke
It's not simply the beauty of the language, the astute eye for character, the hint of humor, or even the spell of legendry and wonder, but Dunsany's unique combination of all of the above. Even read today, with all the fantasy novels I've read, his work remains fresh and exuberant
Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction
A delicate ear for speech rhythms and a brilliantly exact imagination
Ursula K Le Guin
No amount of mere description can convey more than a fraction of Lord Dunsany's pervasive charm
H P Lovecraft
