A celebrated pioneer of fantasy fiction, the Irish writer and dramatist Lord Dunsany produced seminal works such as ‘The King of Elfland’s Daughter’, noted for their imaginative power and intellectual ingenuity. Dunsany achieved great fame and success with his early short stories and plays, conjuring mysterious kingdoms of fairies and gods in richly coloured prose, while promoting a characteristic element of the macabre. This comprehensive eBook presents Dunsany’s collected works, with numerous illustrations, many rare novels, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 2)
