A collection of eight fantasy stories set in a land in what we would now call a parallel universe, an idyllic land of kings and castles, plagued by giants and deathly shadows, which bear hallmarks of some of Oscar Wilde's short stories and, contemporaneously, like some of Neil Gaiman's novels.

Sometimes it is given to us to see it in dreams. This Country is the Land Under the Sunset. This is the story of that Country, and what happened when evil came to abide there.
