Our first release, The Princess and the Goblin and The Princess and Curdie is a compilation of two intriguing short novels by the Victorian writer George MacDonald. A huge influence on C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, G.K. Chesterton and later fantasy authors, these books combine fantastical storylines with suprisingly radical ideas for their time. The stories feature a young princess, an invading horde of goblins, a poetic miner and a white-haired, shape-shifting woman who might hold the key to the universe.
I saw the bright shadow coming out of the book and resting there, transforming all common things and yet itself unchanged.
