4.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Compilation of Fantasy Criticisms Nov. 3 2001
By "sir_grayhawk" - Published on Amazon.com
Edited by Schweitzer, this book contains 11 essays on as many "early" fantasy writers, including Lord Dunasny, James Branch Cabell, Mervyn Wall, John Collier, A. Merritt, E. R. Eddison, Algernon Blackwood, David Lindsay, L. Frank Baum, Henry Kuttner and H. Warner Munn. Anyone interested in these Pre-Tolkien fantasists and their works, or simply have had enough of the overly-dominant Tolkiensque flavor that shadows the genre today will do well to buy and read this book. As usual, this trade paperback published by Wildside Press has an very ugly cover, but it's the contents that matter.
