The definitive edition of a cult classic by the legendary Diana Wynne Jones. Imagine that all fantasy novels--the ones featuring dragons, knights, wizards, and magic--are set in the same place. That place is called Fantasyland. The Tough Guide to Fantasyland is your travel guide, a handbook to everything you might find: Evil, the Dark Lord, Stew, Boots (but not Socks), and what passes for Economics and Ecology. Both a hilarious send-up of the cliches of the genre and an indispensable guide for writers, The Tough Guide to Fantasyland has been nearly impossible to find for years. Now this cult classic is back, and readers can experience Diana Wynne Jones at her very best: incisive, funny, and wildly imaginative. This is the definitive edition of The Tough Guide, featuring a new map, an entirely new design, and additional material written for it by Diana Wynne Jones.World Fantasy Award FinalistA Hugo Award Finalist (Nonfiction)Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Diana Wynne JonesPublisher: FirebirdPublished: 10/05/2006ISBN: 9780142407226Pages: 234Weight: 0.60lbsSize: 8.20h x 5.50w x 0.60dReview Citations: Voice of Youth Advocates 10/01/2006 pg. 348 - Recommended - Hard To BeatBulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 11/01/2006 pg. 154
