Overview

For offering this new edition of my father's Phantastes, my reasons are three. The first is to rescue the work from an edition illustrated without the author's sanction, and so unsuitably that all lovers of the book must have experienced some real grief in turning its pages.

Meet the Author

George MacDonald (1824–1905) is well known for writing fantasy and fairy tales that have inspired notable authors such as J. R. R. Tolkien, W. H. Auden, Madeleine L’Engle, G. K. Chesterton, Elizabeth Yates, Mark Twain and C. S. Lewis. The Scottish author once served as pastor of Trinity Congregational Church, Arundel, and later was also engaged in ministerial work in Manchester. He eventually settled in London and taught at the University of London, and lectured successfully in the United States during 1872–1873. MacDonald was also editor of Good Words for the Young for a time.
