Tales of Three Hemispheres-Other Influencers of H.P. Lovecraft

Within Lord Dunsany’s Tales of Three Hemispheres there are three interlocking stories: Idle Days on the Yann, A Shop in Go by Street, and The Avenger of Perdondaris1 . All three of these tales told of a land of dream. Lovecraft took off on this concept, but in Lovecraft’s series of stories Dunsany’s land of dreams changed to Dreamlands.

1Perdondaris was a famous city in Lord Dunsany’s Idle Days On the Yann that presumably had been destroyed by some army or creature.
