This collection of the de Camps' work, singly and in collaboration with each other, was assembled in honor of their appearance as joint Guests of Honor at X-Con, June 1981 in Milwaukee.

It is a selection of short stories, verse, non-fiction, and excerpts drawn from almost every facet of the de Camps' diverse writings -- fantasy, science fiction, children's stories; poems fabulous, romantic, and pragmatic; notes on prehistory, the evolution of weaponry, and the development of imaginative fiction, the origins of engineering; of Atlantis, Conan, and magic.

This literary feast includes several new pieces, such as Catherine's "Should Your Child Read Science Fiction?" Others range from "The Coming of the Engineers" (LSdeC) to "Windfall" (CCdeC) to "Eudoric's Unicorn" (LSdeC).

Also included are extended introductory remarks about Sprague and Catherine de Camp by Robert A. Heinlein, Lin Carter, Isaac Asimov, Poul Anderson, Andrew Offutt, Patricia Jackson, and George Scithers. The de Camps have passed on since this book was published, and Advent is proud to have it in print as a memorial to them both.

With a color photograph of the de Camps as frontispiece, and black-and-white illustrations by C. H. Burnett.

Also note that some hardback copies are still available direct from the publisher.
