DEDICATED

with deep gratitude to those few, known to me
or unknown, who have cared for either of my
former books, "The Gods of Pegana," "Time
and the Gods
"

 

 
I am indebted to the editor of the Saturday Review for permission to republish here two stories, "In the Twilight" and "The Lord of Cities," which originally appeared in his Review.

My thanks are also due to the editors of The Celtic Christmas, The Neolith, and The Shanachie, in which papers have appeared "The Fall of Babbulkund," "The Highwaymen," "The Hurricane," "On the Dry Land," "The Doom of La Traviata," and "The Whirlpool."
