Product description

Amazon Review

Time and the Gods collects in one volume the short stories of Lord Dunsany, some of the most influential fantasies ever written, affecting. Among others, the works of James Branc Cabell, HP Lovecraft, Fritz Leiber, Michael Swanwick and Jack Vance. In these stories we find out what lies beyond the edge of the world and what happened to the jeweller Thangobrind there; champions return from beyond the grave to save a city lost in its dreams and a young warrior goes up against the sorcerer who inhabits the Fortress Unvanquishable Save for the sword Sacnoth. Dunsany's stories have the jewelled perfection of dreams and the sly malicious wit of after dinner conversation; his surreal imagination is as capable of sending a pirate ship trekking across the Sahara as it is of having a man sell his soul for three deadly jokes. These are stories in which time is the enemy and the gods as much victims of it as humanity, in which the tragedy of dreamers is that eventually they must wake. This is a definitive collection of work which has been unavailable for many years; it is one of the essential books in any fantasy collection. --Roz Kaveney
