Book Review: King of Elfland's Daughter by Lord Dunsany

This is an early fantasy about the tiny town of Erl that wants to be famous and sends the son of their ruler over the boarder of Elfland to find a wife. It is at times tragic, at times funny but always imaginative. I can see many modern fantasies have been strongly influenced by this book, including Stardust, by Neil Gaimen. A good read. I give it 8/10
