From the eerie to the magical by way of the deeply strange, this collection of short stories is a must for all fantasy fans.

Part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library; a series of stunning, cloth-bound, pocket-sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover.

Oscar Wilde’s The Happy Prince draws on the great fairy tale tradition. Elizabeth Gaskell’s The Old Nurse gives us a taste of the Gothic whilst H.P. Blavatsky journeys into the weird. The effects of war and loss are keenly felt by Arthur Machen in his moving story, The Bowmen. And in Victorian times, children’s writers such as Edith Nesbit spin the most charming fantastical tales in stories like The Dragon Tamers.

These amazing feats of imagination brilliantly showcase the many facets of fantasy writing.
