Book: Beyond the fields we know

Author: Lord Dunsany

Details: Collection (c) 1972; material originally published 1906 – 1929; Pub 1972 Pan / Ballantine; Edited by Lin Carter; ISBN 0 345 09744 0

Verdict: Beyond the fields we know is original and contains some really stunning language.

Reasons for reading it: rysmiel quoted a really lovely sentence from Lord Dunsany at one point, and mentioned that he frequently does things like that with language, which seemed a very good reason to read him.

How it came into my hands: I picked it up when I was bookshopping in America last year; it's a bit of a random collection but I understand that anything by Dunsany is pretty hard to find, so I nabbed it anyway.
