About the Author

Eric Rücker Eddison (1882-1945) so loved the William Morris and George Webbe Dasent translations of the Old Norse sagas that he taught himself to read Old Icelandic. He studied classics at Trinity College and went on to write five novels--including the fantasy classic, The Worm Ouroboros.

Paul Edmund Thomas is a literary scholar who has focused most of his work on E. R. Eddison and J. R. R. Tolkien.

Reviews

"In a word, Eddison's books are works, first and foremost, of art. And they are irreplaceable."--C. S. Lewis
"The greatest and most convincing writer of invented worlds that I have read."--J. R. R. Tolkien
"The archaic manner . . . you have to do it perfectly. It's a high wire: one slip spoils all. The man who did it perfectly was, of course, Eddison. If you love language for its own sake, he is irresistible."--Ursula K. Le Guin
