Day One Hundred Seventy-Seven: "A Pretty Quarrel" by Lord Dunsany


A Battle between dwarves and demi-gods. Thank goodness this story was a short one. It's a shame that an Anglo-Irish writer like this doesn't give me more to talk about...I had such high hopes after reading his wikipedia bio as follows:

Edward John Moreton Drax Plunkett, 18th Baron of Dunsany (24 July 1878–25 October 1957), was an Anglo-Irish writer and dramatist, notable for his work in fantasy published under the name Lord Dunsany. More than eighty books of his work were published, and his oeuvre includes hundreds of short stories, as well as successful plays, novels and essays. Born to one of the oldest titles in the Irish peerage, he lived much of his life at perhaps Ireland’s longest-inhabited home, Dunsany Castle near Tara, received an honourary doctorate from Trinity College, and died in Dublin.

For what it's worth, a link to the story online can be found here:
