The First Last Unicorn and Other Beginnings

The First Last Unicorn and Other Beginnings Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Featuring previously unpublished and uncollected treasures from much-beloved fantasy icon Peter S. Beagle, this collection is a rare treat, particularly for fans of The Last Unicorn.

A romp through the filing cabinet of Peter S. Beagles imagination, The First Last Unicorn is an unexpected glimpse into the curios, curiosities, and capstones of his later fiction. Included is a novella-length adventure of The Last Unicorn, in which she bands together with a duo of ambivalent demons to seek out her lost brethren. There are additional chapters from Beagles first novel, A Fine and Private Place; from an unpublished novel, Mirror Kingdoms; and even snippets from his childhood and teenage years. Correspondence, running commentary, and interviews with Beagle give delightful insight into his creative process.

This lovingly curated volume is a hoard of unexpected riches to surprise and delight readers young and old.
