Overview

Imaginings inaugurates an ambitious three-book series featuring the best stories that explore key imaginative concepts in the genre and their later literary permutations. The theme in this initial entry is the power of mythology in human life through the centuries. Authors include Robert Silverberg, whose "After the Myths Went Home" shows the disastrous results of a visit by Greek gods and goddesses to a future society; Algernon Blackwood, with "The Touch of Pan," about an elitist who discovers an alternate world of total honesty; and many more. Period illustrations show the reader how previous generations saw their imaginary worlds of dream and future, and entertaining introductions offer context. Contributors include Euripides, John Crowley, Oskar Kokoschka, Oliver Onions, Robert W. Chambers, and others.
