A unicorn, a haphazard wizard, and a spunky scullery woman journey to the dreaded kingdom of Haggaard, an evil ruler who, with the help of a bull-shaped demon, imprisons all the unicorns of the world. This is one of the great fantasy novels of the 20th century. Since its publication in 1968 it has never been out of print, with six million-plus copies sold around the world, and it has been translated into more than 20 languages.
For 19 years, Jonathan Rebeck has hidden from the world within the confines of the Bronx’s enormous Yorkchester Cemetery, making an abandoned mausoleum his secret home. His life is not an empty one. He can speak with the newly dead - as they pass from life to wherever spirits truly go - providing comfort, an ear, understanding, and even the occasional game of chess.
"A Witty & Romantic Psychological Urban Ghost Story"
Seasonally-themed fantasy stories by Peter S. Beagle, all set during his teen years growing up in the Bronx (1950-1954). Each story advances one season and one year at a time, from spring ("The Stickball Witch") to summer ("Mr. McCaslin") to autumn ("The Rock in the Park") to winter ("Marty and the Messenger"), then finally concluding with "The Fifth Season," a beautifully moving story that ties past and future together in a single night.
