The fields that we know...

Finished reading "The King of Elfland's Daughter" by Lord Dunsany. I've heard that this man's other work is a little confusing and reading this, although not so, I can understand it. This fantasy work about the interaction of a small human village and it's nearby neighbour, Elfland is refreshingly unlike a lot of other mindless filler fantasy works churned out of the system much too often now. They are entertaining, yes, but this is truly interesting and thought-provoking. Even just the wording and style is enjoyable. Find this and read it.
