Lord Dunsany is best known as a favourite of other writers - such as H.P. Lovecraft, who counted him second only to Edgar Allan Poe as an influence on his work.
Lovecraft readers will be interested to know that two ideas Lovecraft got from Dunsany were (1) an artificial pantheon of gods and other entities (Dunsany’s Pegana Mythos predates Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos) and (2) a cosmic vision of man as living on a tiny island of order amid a vast and chaotic universe.
