Chesterton's fantasies reflect his overall philosophy of life, proclaiming the need for wonder in the face of the world of fact. His view of reality penetrates to the roots of these fruitful fantasies, which simultaneously hide and reveal truth: "The Disadvantage of Having Two Heads," a cautionary tale about a young giant-killer; "The Wild Goose Chase," a search for the elusive goals that make life worth living; and "Half-Hours in Hades," an amusing handbook of demonology. Colorfully illustrated poems include "Stilton and Milton," a witty meditation on the relative appeal and durability of cheese and literature. A perfect introduction for readers unacquainted with Chesterton as well as a treat for long-time aficionados, this new edition features an Afterword by Martin Gardner, a leading authority on the author
