    Summary

    The Book of Wonder (1912) is an amazing collection of fourteen tales by one of the pioneers and masters of the fantasy genre Lord Dunsany. Strangeness and humor abound in these delightful stories that were influential to many writers including H.P. Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith and Fritz Leiber among others.-Erik

    - Book of Wonder and reader

    This is a charming set of short fantasy stories. My only complaint is that they are each so short I felt I had just gotten into them when they were done. The reader is awesome and has the perfect tone and reading style for this genre.

    - Disagree with "thecrwth"

    Out of all the narrators, this guy reads better than most. He should read more works from Dunsany.
