Read full description of the books The Hashish Man and Other Stories:Out of the 25 stories I liked these: Charon, The Three Sailors' Gambit, The Hashish Man, and The Secret of the Sea. Dunsany is exquisite in his descriptions of imaginary places, and he can conjure up an atmosphere of mystery and anticipation and eeriness in just a few words. I found his style refreshing and lyrical. This particular collection is not big on plot, however, and I felt like I was being teased - drawn in completely, but ultimately left unsatisfied. I only picked this book up because "The King of Elfland's Daughter" was not available when I was at the library - so I'm hoping Dunsany proves more satisfactory in his novels.

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.
