Cold Spring Press Presents: Seekers of Dreams - Xoanon @ 23:14 PST
Seekers of Dreams SEEKERS OF DREAMS, edited by Douglas A. Anderson. Cold Spring Press, trade paperback, $14.00, 1-59360-048-8. Original compilation. Cover by Daniel Govar. A collection of twenty stories, one play and one poem which exemplifies the diversity of fantasy, in style and in form. Authors represented include Jonathan Carroll, Lord Dunsany, Peter S. Beagle, Clark Ashton Smith, Clemence Housman, and L. Frank Baum. The Baum is a short story version of his famous novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, never before reprinted. Two of the stories will delight Tolkien fans-Andy Duncan's wicked "Senator Bilbo," which takes the real life, racist, diminutive Mississippi Senator Theodore Bilbo (1877-1947) and drops him into a town rather like Hobbiton, and Verlyn's Flieger's "Green Hill Country", published here for the first time, an exploration of oral tradition and how that might affect retellings of The Lord of the Rings.
