Edward John Moreton Drax Plunkett, 18th Baron of Dunsany, published 'Gods of Pegana' in 1905, to immediate success and acclaim. In the years that have followed, it has been a shaping power of the fantasy genre, influencing Lovecraft, Tolkien, Lewis, Le Guin, Pratchett and many others.
The Gods of Pegana is a marvellous invented pantheon and mythology, attributed to the inhabitants of an undiscovered, idyllic island, giving the history of the world from creation to the end, when the ship of Yoharneth-Lahai departs along the river of silence.
It is not the tales alone which give the book its lasting charm and force: The illustrations by Sidney Sime are beautiful and haunting in the extreme.
Discover for yourself the effect that this wonderful book has had on generations of readers and writers of fantasy.
