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.

"You must fetch me a bottle of Carasoyn," says she, haughtily. "And what is that?" asks the boy Colin, pleased that he has won the favor of the Queen of the Fairies, even if by accident. "Why, it's the kind of wine that makes people happy!" The lonely Colin has grown up by his own wits -- and they have served him well so far! But this Queen is out to fool the boy . . . and can even the best human wits suffice in such a contest?
