"[Dunsany's] rich language, his cosmic point of view, his remote dream-worlds, and his exquisite sense of the fantastic, all appeal to me more than anything else in modern literature."--American author H. P. LovecraftOne of English literature's most original talents, Irish writer Edward J. M. D. Plunkett, the eighteenth Baron of Dunsany, created many of the best fantastic tales in the language. This collection of 33 stories includes all of the tales from two of his finest collections, including "The Three Sailors' Gambit," "The House of the Sphinx," "The Wonderful Window," "The Bad Old Woman in Black," "The Watch-Tower," "The Three Infernal Jokes," "The Secret of the Sea," and 26 other literary gems.

During his lifetime, he published more than eighty books, as well as hundreds of short stories andnbsp;several successful plays. Dunsany, most noted for his writing of fantasy, influenced such writers as H. P. Lovecraft, Arthur C. Clarke, Neil Gaiman, and many others
