    Dreamworlds, magic; faerie - an entrancing collection from 'One of the greatest writers of this century' (Arthur C Clarke).

    Of all the weavers of magic, there is none like Lord Dunsany. During his long lifetime he wrote more than 60 books including novels, plays, poetry collections and most memorably, innumerable exotic and fantastical short stories.

    Here is the very best of Dunsany's extraordinarily evocative tales of Faerie, of dreamworlds and of magic. Considered a major influence on J R R Tolkien and Ursula Le Guin, these are some of the most beguiling fantasies in the English language, including the complete contents of Time and the Gods, The Book of Wonder, The Sword of Welleran and The Last Book of Wonder.

    "To the truly imaginative he is a talisman and a key unlocking rich storehouses of dreams." (H P Lovecraft)

    Some hits, few misses

    Lord Dunsany's contribution to fantasy as we know it is indisputably priceless and I often felt that this story or that must have been the inspiration for other works I know. On its own, though, this collection has some hits and a few misses.
    It's exciting to think about it as (I think) the first (or at least one of the first) attempts at writing a fictional mythology and it does a good job at it too, but at some points it feels a bit tedious. Surprisingly, it's actually the less mythology-related works that are better. It has been a good read (listen) but I can't say I wasn't slightly relieved to start a new audiobook after that one.

    While both performers read very clearly, Emma Powell's narration, which is full of well-fitting pathos, is FAR superior to David Thorpe's ever oddly-bemused narration. I'd prefer it if more of the stories, if not all, were read by her.

    A final note about the editing - not a good job. Here and there some tracks were broken and the entire final part of the book which is a collection of many short stories is edited (or unedited) as one single chunk of uninterrupted audio.
