Lord Dunsany

Kindle (US version), Kindle, ePub (US version), ePub

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. For the first time in publishing history, this comprehensive eBook presents Dunsany’s complete fictional works, with numerous illustrations, many rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
