This is an omnibus edition of three novels by James Branch Cabell (rhymes with rabble). These are adult fantasy novels that seemed shocking when they were first published in the early 20th century, but seem tame by today's standards. Still, the work of Cabell influenced many of the best authors of fantasy and science fiction including Neil Gaiman, Robert A. Heinlein and Fritz Leiber. This volume includes the following:
Jurgen: A Comedy of Justice
Figures of Earth
The Rivet in Grandfather's Neck
James Branch Cabell (1879-1958) wrote fantasy, and while he's not as well-known to readers these days, his work inspired various authors including Robert A. Heinlein, Neil Gaiman, James Blish, Fritz Leiber, and others. Interesting tidbit, in 1901, Cabell was a suspect in a murder investigation.
