Phantastes: A Faerie Romance for Men and Women is a fantasy novel by Scottish writer George MacDonald, first published in London in 1858. It was later reprinted in paperback by Ballantine Books as the fourteenth volume of the Ballantine Adult Fantasy series in April 1970. The story centres on the character Anodos ("pathless", or "ascent" in Greek) and takes its inspiration from German Romanticism, particularly Novalis.

1905 George MacDonald was born on December 10, 1824 in Huntley, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. MacDonald is perhaps best known for his fantasy children's books, although he wrote fantasy books for adults as well. He attended University in Aberdeen in 1840 and then went on to Highbury College in 1848 where he studied to be a Congregational Minister, receiving his M. A. His first appointment was in Arundel, but he was forced to resign form the position in 1853.

Only 13 left in stock (more on the way). At first it was hard to get into because for a while the story seems to wander aimlessly. MacDonald describes Fairy Land beautifully, but I just didn't see any plot to connect the seemingly random events. Also, it was sometimes a chore to get through the long sections of poetry (as I'm not a big fan of poetry).

Before you read Tolkein, before you think of CS Lewis - read this book first. This is the master that inspired the masters.
I bought this because I read that it was an inspiration for C.S. Lewis. If you are a Lewis-phile, it may be worth reading. From the person I gave the book to, I'm told it's not as good as Lewis' writing though, but for me it was purchased as a gift mostly for the insight it might provide into the literary giant Clive Staples Lewis, author of "God in the Dock," "The Screwtape Letters," "The Chronicles of Narnia" series and "Mere [read: "Simply] Christianity."
