new book alert
- Amazon has just sent me an announcement of:
"Fantasy, Myth and the Measure of Truth: Tales of Pullman, Lewis, Tolkien,
MacDonald and Hoffman" by William Gray.
That's Hoffman as in E.T.A. "Tales of" Hoffmann. (The cover has the
spelling right even if the Amazon listing doesn't.) Seems to be an
exploration of the 19th-century fairy-tale roots of modern fantasy;
especially considering his choice of three 20th-century authors, it could be
of interest to many here.
