Overview

One Of The Biggest Bargains In Fantasy! Here are three widely-acclaimed classic novels that offer hours of fantastic reading for lovers of fantasy. First you will thrill to James Stephens' The Crock of Gold. Here is a novel "steeped in Gaelic folklore and mythology ... with a cult following," according to the Readers Guide to Fantasy. Among the cast of enthralling characters you will meet in this unique fantasy adventure are the Grey Woman of Dun Gortin, the leprechauns of Gort na Cloca Mora, the god Pan, two Philosophers, the Sluaige Shee (or fairy host of Ireland), and some police. The Readers Guide hails it as "breathtaking … as stylized as a piece of Celtic gold; it's hard to imagine anyone reading it and not becoming a member of its cult." Next is the delightful, if pointed, fantasy Lady into Fox by David Garnett. H. G. Wells called it, "The most amazingly good story I have read in a long time. It is perfectly done." Joseph Conrad said, Lady into Fox "is flawless in style and exposition, altogether an accomplished piece of work." We think you will agree. Finally, if you loved the Lord of the Rings, you will love William Makepeace Thackeray's The Rose and the Ring, and its stout, delightful hero, Bulbo (shades of the hobbits!). In this funny, spellbinding classic a magic rose and ring which make those in the possession of them attractive, but complications arise when the fairy Blackstick uses her ebony wand to add "a little misfortune" to their lives. The resulting complications are the basis of this hilarious, unusual fantasy novel. Three great fantasy novels, over 750 pages in book form, for one low price!
