I love some of Dunsany's stories. (L. Sprague de Camp discovered his name is pronounced Dun-sane-e. Who knew?) The best of them are great, but I find about five Dunsany books have been sitting on my "to read" shelf for more than ten years. Still, I'll probably buy the new one.

Hello admin,

I remember years ago talking to a bookseller about Dunsany and he very properly corrected my pronunciation of Dunsany in no uncertain terms. It's funny, in some ways at least pre internet days we read in an isolated bubble and made assumptions about how words and names were meant to sound without hearing anyone else use them! I do hope you can purchase a copy, they're some great stories and the press could certainly use the support. Each sale helps fund the next book so hopefully it's self sustaining.
