Book Description

Fantasy is today's fastest-growing fictional genre. David Pringle, author of the highly praised "Science Fiction: The 100 Best Novels and Imaginary People: A Who's Who of Modern Fictional Characters", has written a much-needed, lively and authoritative guide to the top 100 English-language fantasy novels published since 1945. It is a book which will stimulate new interest in these modern masterpieces as well as appealing to all dedicated fans of the fantastic in literature. The selection is a wide one, embracing stories of supernatural horror, heroic fantasy or 'fabulation' (tales set in a real but subtly distorted world) - all of them dealing with the marvellous, the magical or the otherworldly. Jacket illustration shows "The Temptation of St. Anthony" by Max Ernst (1945)
