THE MAHARAJAH AND OTHER STORIES BY T.H. WHITE
Edited by Kurth Sprague
Here for the pleasure of young and old alike is a special collection of enchantments from the author of The Once and Future King. T. H. White once again works his incomparable wizardry in these sixteen stories— some never before published—and the result is a hypnotizing concoction of the fantastic, the fabulous and the frightening!
Only the acknowledged master of magic could create a totally rational universe in which werewolves seduce the living into chases to the death, in which clergymen organists in a remote country church serenade the dead in nocturnal concerts, in which cannibal trolls reside in hotel rooms and the god Pan conducts tours for boys of the natural wonders around them, and in which noblemen become spaniels and imaginary brats drive their would-be parents to bestial acts of destruction.
Ranging from the fourteenth century to the present, from the lush and lethal palaces of evil maharajahs to the verdant English countryside where mythical creatures dance circles around stuffy aristocrats, from the sunny sorcery of love to the dark and violent powers of hate—here is en-thralling fantasy as only T. H. White can conjure it. The Maharajah and Other Stories will cast its spell over every reader and convince us of the presence of magic in all our lives.
T. H. White (1906-1964) was educated at Cambridge and taught for several years in the 1930s before devoting himself to writing. He is perhaps best known for his four books on the Arthurian legends, published together in 1958 as The Once and Future King.
