About the Author: George MacDonald

George MacDonald was a Scottish author, poet, and Christian minister.

Known particularly for his poignant fairy tales and fantasy novels, George MacDonald inspired many authors, such as G.K. Chesterton, W. H. Auden, J.R.R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, and Madeleine L'Engle. Lewis that wrote that he regarded MacDonald as his "master": "Picking up a copy of Phantastes one day at a train-station bookstall, I began to read. A few hours later," said Lewis, "I knew that I had crossed a great frontier." G. K. Chesterton cited The Princess and the Goblin as a book that had "made a difference to my whole existence."

Elizabeth Yates wrote of Sir Gibbie, "It moved me the way books did when, as a child, the great gates of literature began to open and first encounters with noble thoughts and utterances were unspeakably thrilling."

Even Mark Twain, who initially disliked MacDonald, became friends with him, and there is some evidence that Twain was influenced by MacDonald.

George MacDonald was a pioneering figure in the field of fantasy literature and the mentor of fellow writer Lewis Carroll. His writings have been cited as a major literary influence by many notable authors. C. S. Lewis wrote that he regarded MacDonald as his "master": "Picking up a copy of Phantastes one day at a train-station bookstall, I began to read. A few hours later," said Lewis, "I knew that I had crossed a great frontier." G. K. Chesterton cited The Princess and the Goblin as a book that had "made a difference to my whole existence." WILL THIS YOUNG POET AMOUNT TO NOTHING? His Aunt Ann certainly thinks so. "Walter is a drain on your finances!" she states self-righteously. But Richard Colman, a farmer, doesn't think so. He loves his son, Walter Colman the young poet, and supports his ambition. Walter is his link to his dead wife. And besides . . . However Richard Colman's finances fail and the young poet must fend for himself. At first Walter finds some success -- but he meets the seductive Lufa and endures trouble. Should he return to the simple life of father, farmland and childhood friend Molly -- and his love of God Himself? Find out in this heartfelt parable of faith and art by the nineteenth century Scottish Christian master!
