All the Tales Pertaining to the Fabulous Realm of Pegana, by Lord Dunsany

"... Dunsany has influenced me more than anyone else except Poe—his rich language, his cosmic point of view, his remote dream-world, & his exquisite sense of the fantastic, all appeal to me more than anything else in mordern literature. My first encounter with him ... gave an immense impetus to my writing; perhaps the greatest it has ever had."

—H.P. Lovecraft, letter to Clark Ashton Smith, 1923.

" And if thou sighest for any memory of earth because thou hearest unforgotten voices, then will the gods send messengers on wings to soothe thee in Pegana, saying to them: 'There one sigheth who hath remembered Earth' and they shall make Pegana more seductive for thee still, and they shall take thee by the hand and whisper in thine ear till the old voices are forgot."

—Lord Dunsany, The Gods Of Pegana.

Lord Dunsany's dream-like short stories were an important basis not only for HP Lovecraft's Dreamlands stories, but also for his entire mythos of supernatural entities. Now for the first time ever, all of Dunsany's Pegana series is collected in one place.

The Complete Pegana contains the entire contents of Dunsany's first two collections, "The Gods of Pegana" and "Time and the Gods", as well as his final Pegana trilogy, "Beyond the Fields We Know".

"Dunsany reigns, along with Tolkien, Peake, and Cabell, as one of the true giants of twentieth-century fantasy... He has been an important model for a variety of writers, including H.P. Lovecraft, Fritz Leiber, Ursula LeGuin, [and] Clark Ashton Smith."

—Darrell Schweitzer, Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
