Irish Masters of Fantasy(1979)
(The Wondersmith and Other Macabre Tales)
An anthology of stories edited by Peter Tremayne
Readers of fantasy have always been aware of the Celtic influences on the development of fantasy literature. Irish writers, in particular, have had the most proffound effect on fantasy writing and especially on the macabre fantasy tale. In fact six of the giants of fantasy writing are Irish, and it is their work that is represented in this anthology: Charles R Maturin, Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, Fitzjames O'Brien, Bram Stoker, M.P. Shiel, and Lord Dunsay.
