A reprint of this classic fantasy story, first published in 1965, illustrated with black and white line drawings by Charles Keeping.

Product Description:

An urban fantasy, read by Robert Powell

Review:

“A spellbinder. The secret of Garner’s magic is that it is stripped of whimsy… A beautiful work of poetic imagination, it deserves to become a classic of fantasy.”
The Listener

“Each detail, ordinary or sinister, establishes atmosphere, background or character exactly. Elidor is a remarkable book: intelligent, rich and terrifying.”
TLS

“An outstanding book.”
The Teacher

“Adventure of a staggering grandeur… beautiful, profound, disturbing. His myths and terrors seem to me immortal.”
The New Christian

“Ambitiously imagined and worked out with a hard economical tension. The climax, a peak after chapters of mounting terror, is brilliant.”
The New Statesman
