Read full description of the books Tales of War: Expanded Edition:""Tales of War"" is a melancholy, atypical, and occasionally surprising book by the author of The Gods of Pegana and The King of Elfland's Daughter. It was written for a political rather than artistic purpose, but because it was painfully inspired from life (and death) and because it is written by a great writer, it is far more than just a curio. It also crosses more than once into the fantastic realm, which is partly why it is of interest to readers of Dunsany's classic fantasy works. This special expanded edition adds a pair of previously uncollected war-related stories from the same time period: ""One More Tale"" and ""La Dernire Mobilisation," plus a new introduction written especially for this volume by Dunsany scholar Darrell Schweitzer.

More than eighty books of his work were published, and his oeuvre includes hundreds of short stories, as well as successful plays, novels and essays. Born to one of the oldest titles in the Irish peerage, he lived much of his life at perhaps Ireland's longest-inhabited home, Dunsany Castle near Tara, received an honourary doctorate from Trinity College, and died in Dublin.
