James Branch Cabell – US version

$ 1.99

The mid-twentieth century American author James Branch Cabell made a significant contribution to the development of fantasy fiction. Famous exponents of the genre such as ‘Jurgen’ and ‘The Silver Stallion’ are noted for their satirical and mannered style, sexual symbolism and for exploring a unique philosophy of life. His landmark series of books, entitled ‘Biography of the Life of Manuel’, are set in the imaginary medieval province of Poictesme, offering the reader an escape from real life, while employing a sceptical view of human experience. This comprehensive eBook presents Cabell’s collected works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
