Overview

New and uncollected short fiction from the beloved author of The Last Unicorn .

An odd team patrols a countyfull of mythological beasts only slightly more problematic than the locals. A familiar youngster from the world of The Last Unicorn is gifted in magic but terrible at spell-casting. Aseemingly incorruptible judge meets his match in a mysterious thief who steals his heart.

Lyrical, witty, and heartbreaking, The Overneath is Peter S. Beagle's much-anticipated return to the short form.In these uniquely beautiful and wholly originaltales, Beagle once again proves himself a master of the imagination.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Praise for Peter S. Beagle

“[Beagle] has been compared, not unreasonably, with Lewis Carroll and J. R. R. Tolkien, but he stands squarely—and triumphantly—on his own feet.”
The Saturday Review

“One of my favorite writers.”
—Madeleine L’Engle, author of A Wrinkle in Time

“Peter S. Beagle illuminates with his own particular magic such commonplace matters as ghosts, unicorns, and werewolves. For years a loving readership has consulted him as an expert on those hearts’ reasons that reason does not know.”
—Ursula K. Le Guin, author of A Wizard of Earthsea

“Peter S. Beagle is (in no particular order) a wonderful writer, a fine human being, and a bandit prince out to steal readers’ hearts.”
—Tad Williams, author of The Dragonbone Chair

“Peter S. Beagle is the magician we all apprenticed ourselves to.”
—Lisa Goldstein, author of The Red Magician

“Peter S. Beagle would be one of the century’s great writers in any arena he chose; we readers must feel blessed that Beagle picked fantasy as a homeland.”
—Edward Bryant, author of Cinnabar

[STARRED REVIEW] “[A] charming, lyrical tale of unicorns and love . . . Beagle’s kindly fable shows how a man who seems to have nothing can really have everything—with just a touch of magic.”
Publishers Weekly (on In Calabria)

“A novella about love in a world of hardship, loss, magic, and recovery. Beagle’s unicorns have never been more bewitching, impossible, and genuine. I cherished every page.”
—Gregory Maguire, author of Wicked and After Alice (on In Calabria)

A Lilac Wolf and Stuff Review **Thank you, NetGalley, for the digital copy!** You know, a lot of people look at me funny when I mention The Last Unicorn, but it was a life changing movie when I was a kid. And when I found out this is the guy who wrote it...I was all in. I haven't read The Last Unicorn yet, but he wrote the book AND the screenplay! This was awesome writing! The fantastical stories he has in his head. And he creates characters that you care about, even in the shortest time. Shoot, there was one story that I really didn't care for and I still had to finish it to find out what happened. If you have followed me at all, you know I'm not a huge short story fan. But this was a complete winner! And going forward, I am going to have to investigate this author.
