The Newcastle Forgotten Fantasy Library


Demon

"THE NEWCASTLE FORGOTTEN FANTASY LIBRARY: is a new series of adult fantasy classics, long neglected in the mists of time, resurrected for the delight of a new generation of fantasy fans by the editors of FORGOTTEN FANTASY magazine. It is our hope to bring to light once again some of the finest imaginative fiction of the past in attractive, durable editions for today's readers." Edited by R. Reginald and Douglas Menville.

The preceding statement comes from the back cover of the first title in the library, THE GLITTERING PLAIN. An ad in the back pages of ERIC BRIGHTEYES provides this additional information: "a new series of 26 adult fantasy classics". The selection of titles would be of special interest to William Morris and Rider Haggard fans as these two authors dominate the library, but there are obsure names represented as well.

NOTE: Only 24 titles were ever released in the Forgotten Fantasy Library. This has been confirmed by series co-editor Robert Reginald.
