The Arched Doorway declares that “The Treasury of the Fantastic is just that, a comprehensive collection of fantastical literature from throughout the many years covering the romanticism era to the early twentieth century.”
This collection contains many of the essentials, the well-known stories we’ve all read or heard reference to growing up, to ones that have fallen into the dark clutches of obscurity. With the great diversity of these tales, readers are sure to feel the stirrings of familiarity, of nostalgia, and of wonder. Readers of both classical and fantasy literature will feel right at home within these pages. I personally loved most of the tales, though there were of course some that I struggled through; with forty-four stories in this collection, there’s bound to be something for everyone.
