The right edition of the right book,
By A Customer
This review is from: Lud-In-The-Mist (Paperback)
Another fine book in the admirable line of Fantasy Masterworks - marred by the bizarre mis-ordering of the contents in its Dunsany omnibus, but that's another book. Even the introduction (by Neil Gaiman) is unusually intelligent, and far less self-indulgent than is now the norm for literary introductions.
Intelligent, spiky, witty, and with an extraordinary line in dislocating supernatural terror.
Very good, very odd, and even now quite unlike almost anything in English; just possibly slightly more like John Crowley's "Little, Big: or, the Fairies' Parliament" than it is like anything else, but that says more for its excellence than for its specific character. Buy, read.
