(From the publisher):
Magic - that particular magic known as adult fantasy - has always fascinated mankind and continues to do so as the enchanted and enchanting stories in this volume prove.
For these are works by writers like William Morris, Lord Dunsany, E.R. Eddison, H.P. Lovecraft, L. Sprage de Camp, J.R.R. Tolkien, Jack Vance - and many more.
A fit contemporary companion volume to the pride of ancient writers in "Dragons, Elves and Heroes."
Edited and with an introduction and notes by Lin Carter.
