A writer who influenced prior generations of writers, themselves now influential, who isn't well known in his own right at this point.

This is an omnibus of two small books of short stories, many only a few pages long. The best are mysterious little glimpses, small slices of a larger unknown. Some others fall rather flat, and there are parts of Dunsany's worldview that don't age particularly well.

Still, it's an easy read, and even if it's a mixed bag it's worth it for the better moments.
