Lord Dunsany (24 July 1878 – 25 October 1957) was a London-born Anglo-Irish writer and dramatist notable for his work in fantasy. He was influenced by Algernon Swinburne, who wrote the line "Time and the Gods are at strife" in his 1866 poem "Hymn to Proserpine", as well as by the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen. In turn, Dunsany's influence was felt by H. P. Lovecraft and Ursula K. Le Guin. Arthur C. Clarke corresponded with Dunsany between 1944 and 1956. Those letters are collected in the book Arthur C. Clarke & Lord Dunsany: A Correspondence. Time and the Gods, a series of short stories written in a myth-like style, was first published in 1906. (Summary from Wikipedia)

A very interesting, very different kind of book. No real story to speak of but lots of interesting stories told in the myths and creation Legends. Not for everyone, but if you love world building it might just be for you The narration is done by volunteers (thank you, volunteers) and so can be a little hit and miss. None are terrible, but some have trouble with pronunciations, flubs, redone lines and other small errors that might turn some people off. But some are great and perfect for the role. The guy from Finland brought me there.
