Many are the tales that have been written of Elfland. Surely few have realized the cold, calculating halfword with as much sympathy and reality as this book. Indeed, if Sir Bela were not such a doughty knight himself, one might suspect him of kinship with those impersonal, clever, fay, powerful and careless immortals who people the twilight world of elves. Something there certainly is of elven richness and perverse humor, an antic way of looking at the world, an excitement that pervades and illuminate the prose of Poul Anderson.
This paperback book is in good condition with a spine crease and rubbing, and some cover wear.
