He is not dead; but there are worse things than death... When his father goes missing on the mystical isle of aea, Amphion knows something must be done. Convinced that the island's mistress-the vindictive and temperamental goddess CircE-will spare his father's life, Amphion sets off on a bold rescue mission. Accompanied only by his wise pet snake-dragon Simo, the young man insists he and his father will be able to outwit the enchantress. But only CircE of the Braided Hair knows what awaits them in her private island menagerie... "The book should be perused on a lazy summer day, preferably...on the shores of some sunny lake, or at least, if this is all that is available, in a hammock slung in some retired spot." -The Saturday Review, 1926 Eden Phillpotts was born in India in 1862, but hailed from the United Kingdom from his early childhood forward. Known as a prolific young adult and mystery novelist, he penned about 250 works in his lifetime, including The Farmer's Wife, a comic play which Alfred Hitchcock later directed as a silent film. Later in his career, he explored his modern philosophy in a wealth of fantasy and early science-fiction novels.
