From The Guardian: Game of Thrones effect fires up reissues of ‘lost’ fantasy fiction classics.
It is a lyrical, beautiful fantasy story about a mythical beast who sets out on a quest into a world that no longer believes in her to find out if she is truly the last of her kind.
Published in 1968, The Last Unicorn by Peter S Beagle spawned an animated movie 40 years ago and is a cherished novel that appeals to children and adults alike. But it’s not surprising if you haven’t heard of it. It hasn’t been published in the UK for half a century.
This week it is finally being reissued, the latest in a string of classic fantasy novels to find a new audience thanks to the prevalence of the genre on TV and the big screen.
With the Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon hitting Sky Atlantic on Monday, Netflix offering a bonus episode of its world-conquering series The Sandman, and Lord of the Rings forerunner The Rings of Power streaming on Amazon Prime Video from 2 September, fantasy fans have never had it so good.
