The tales of Lord Dunsany are masterpieces of science fiction and fantasy. They reflect the author's keen sense of the humor and irony--with the proverbial twinkle in his eye--and with a keen appreciation of the ultimate futility of most human longings. "The Last Book of Wonder" is a magnificent collection of stories written as the world raged in The War to End All Wars, the First WWI. It is Dunsany at his peak. The stories are a lush tapestry of language, of images of people, places, and things that cannot exist, yet are familiar. They are as full of wonder as they are unforgettable. These stories are a necessary part of any fantasy collection.
