An inspiration to many for his style and prose, Lord Dunsany was a pioneer for fantasy fiction, inspiring such famous writers as H. P. Lovecraft, J. R. R. Tolkien, and Neil Gaiman to name a few. Over sixty years since its first publication, The Strange Journeys of Colonel Polders is now once again available to readers.
In this classic fantasy, a no-nonsense British officer, having offended an Indian swami in his club, finds his spirit lodged into a successful of animal bodies. Some of the animals the officer’s spirit enters are a cat, goat, eel, fox, and many others. In his fantastic style, Dunsany captures the exact sentiments of each animal, making it believable that the office has, in fact, taken them as his own.
Out of print for over sixty years, The Strange Journeys of Colonel Polders is a fantastic tale that takes you to the core of fantasy writing and shows the skill of Lord Dunsany that many writers hold in the absolute highest regard. A lost classic, The Strange Journeys of Colonel Polders is finally available for readers of the beloved fantasy genre.
