by Peter S. Beagle
“Verdict: For fantasy fans, Beagle should be a staple.”
An unusual duo patrols a county full of mythological beasts and ornery locals. A familiar youngster from the world of The Last Unicorn is gifted in magic but terrible at spell-casting. A seemingly incorruptible judge meets his match in a mysterious thief who steals his heart. Two old friends discover that the Overneath goes anywhere, including locations better left unvisited.
Lyrical, witty, and insightful, THE OVERNEATH is Peter S. Beagle’s much-anticipated return to the short form. In these uniquely beautiful and wholly original tales Beagle once again proves himself a master of the imagination.
“[Beagle] continues to produce exceptional work and The Overneath, an enchanting collection of short stories which—fans won’t be surprised to hear—also includes one or two new tales about unicorns, will only consolidate his legend even further. This anthology is a triumph. 10/10 stars.”
