"What George MacDonald does best is fantasy--fantasy that hovers between the allegorical and the mythopoeic. And this, in my opinion, he does better than any man." - C S Lewis
About the Author
George MacDonald (1824-1905) was a great nineteenth-century innovator of modern fantasy, whose works influenced C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, and Charles Williams. ""I do not write for children,"" MacDonald once said, ""but for the childlike, whether of five, or fifty, or seventy-five.""
