Time and the Gods - Lord Dunsany Another classic fantasy book which had a lot of influence on [a:J.R.R. Tolkien|656983|J.R.R. Tolkien|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1329870573p2/656983.jpg] thus on the whole fantasy genre. The dated style makes is quite hard to read (thus only 2 stars instead of 3). It is a collection of short stories related to early days of gods and their creation and later, relationship between people and gods (mostly done with prophets being the interpreters of gods' will. The book is curious for historical value, if nothing else.
