Description

A Brief History of Gnolls: Anthropophagy and Emeralds from Wales to Wisconsin and Beyond traces the history of the title fantasy creatures in literature and gaming, from when they were first introduced nearly a century ago up through the present. This revised and expanded second edition of the book includes the 1951 Margaret St. Clair (aka Idris Seabright) short story “The Man Who Sold Rope to the Gnoles.”

Features of this unique and entertaining volume also include two quasi-academic essays by writer Paul Haynie that examine the literary history of Gnolls; the 1912 Lord Dunsany short story “How Nuth Would Have Practiced His Art Upon the Gnoles,” the first literary work to introduce the creatures in question; and illustrations by fantasy artists Jon Kaufman, Eugenia de León, Sharon Daugherty, and Sidney Sime.
