I have never seen this book before, and I love, love, love the cover. There are 17 illustrations inside by James Cagle. Some of the stories are ones I've never seen before:
Cross Purposes - George MacDonald
Darkness Box - Ursula K LeGuin
The Unholy Grail - Fritz Leiber
The Troll - T.H. White
Lila the Werewolf - Peter Beagle
The Crowd - Ray Bradbury
The Brown Hand - Arthur Conan Doyle
There are 17 stories in total in this collection. They are the same editors of The Fantastic Imagination (1977), and The Fantastic Imagination 2 (1978), exhibiting the best of fantasy writing for 100 years, both of which I own and have only partially read. Hmm, maybe I should add these to the fantasy challenge portion......
Actually, I exclaimed over all the books I found today. Madame Bovary! The Day of the Triffids! Jack Kerouac! The Count of Monte Cristo! The Giant Squid book, which I am going to read while I read Moby Dick! We, the classic Soviet science fiction novel! And the Colin Dexter book The Way Through the Woods which Margaret at BooksPlease just reviewed and I don't own among my Morse mysteries. And it was half-price day too, so I can still hunt for Green Mars and feel virtuous in this first week of January.
Now to update my challenge list page......
I love finding books second-hand, especially the hard-to-find and out of print books.
