Fantasy Masterworks Spotlight: Little, Big

A magical, funny, eloquent, unforgettable fantasy about a house filled with enchantment and the strange folk who inhabit it. We are delighted to present this new edition of John Crowley’s World Fantasy Award-winning novel, with a new introduction by Graham Sleight.

Edgewood is many houses, all put inside each other, or across each other. It’s filled with and surrounded by mystery and enchantment: the further in you go, the bigger it gets.

Smoky Barnable, who has fallen in love with Daily Alice Drinkwater, comes to Edgewood, her family home, where he finds himself drawn into a world of magical strangeness.

Crowley’s work has a special alchemy – mixing the world we know with an imagined world which seems more true and real. Little, Big is eloquent, sensual, funny and unforgettable, a true Fantasy Masterwork.

N.B. The eBook edition will follow at the end of March.

You can find more of John Crowley’s work via his Author page on the Gateway website, and read about him in his entry in The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction.
