The Works of Lord Dunsany

We are proud to present an online collection featuring nearly all of the major works by the great fantasy writer Lord Dunsany. Lord Dunsany had great influence on the works of H.P. Lovecraft and many other writers. For those who are unfamiliar with his works, here is an excerpt from The Hoard of the Gibbelins:
The Gibbelins
The Gibbelins eat, as is well known, nothing less good than man. Their evil tower is joined to Terra Cognita, to the lands we know, by a bridge. Their hoard is beyond reason; avarice has no use for it; they have a separate cellar for emeralds and a separate cellar for sapphires; they have filled a hole with gold and dig it up when they need it. And the only use that is known for their ridiculous wealth is to attract to their larder a continual supply of food. In times of famine they have even been known to scatter rubies abroad, a little trail of them to some city of Man, and sure enough their larders would soon be full again.
