    This invaluable collection of Avram Davidson's resonant, witty short stories describes some incidents in the career of many-times-Doctor Engelbert Eszterhazy, loyal subject of the Triune Monarchy of Scythia- Pannonia-Transbalkania, located in a 19th-century Europe whose political landscape will be, after a little reflection, familiar to most fantasy listeners. Enquire with Doctor Eszterhazy into curious matters: the lurley, the old woman who lived with a bear, gingerbread men, dancing goats, and more.

    Story

    To describe the "plots" would be impossible. But Neil Gaiman in the preface refers to the interview process for a reader, and I can only rave at the excellent choice. He can Read!
    He can pronounce words correctly! Even foreign words! He can do intonations, semi-accents, and characterization. I am falling down in delight. And for this writing that is all absolutely necessary. Because Avram Davidson was a brilliant man, with an education seldom seen these days, and a very wry sense of humor/the ridiculous.
