    This early seventies collection reprints all of Dunsany's first short story collection, "The Gods of Pegana," and two or three stories from each of his subsequent short story books. Beautifully written, oddly whimsical, and when he writes about the outdoors it has the feel of someone who's spent a lot of time outdoors. That said, the stories may not be to everyone's taste; some of the Gods stuff is just descriptions of the Gods and their ways, without a real plot or a protagonist.

They work for me even so, but YMMV.

    The language in this book is rich and evocative and, for me, an enjoyable read. Reminding me of Kubla Khan by Coleridge. But also of the Narnia series and Lord of the Rings. Quite the fantasy, I'm glad I stumbled on it. The language in this book is rich and evocative and, for me, an enjoyable read. Reminding me of Kubla Khan by Coleridge.

    it's a bit mixed. the gods of pegana is really cool but a lot of the other stories aren't so good, you can tell he was still getting his style down. some of them are kinda funny though. the poetry isn't very good, and the play was sort of cool i guess although idk anything about plays. it's a bit mixed. the gods of pegana is really cool but a lot of the other stories aren't so good, you can tell he was still getting his style down. some of them are kinda funny though. the poetry isn't very good, and the play was sort of cool i guess although idk anything about plays.
