From A (A Bao A Qu) to Z (Zaratan) an imaginary bestiary. This is an inventory of curious & fabulous creatures compiled by a great South American writer. Few readers will want, or be able, to resist this modern bestiary. For in a world where 'floating islands are invariably Krakens,' we must beware of the basilicok which 'sleeth folk by the venom of his sighte'; & we mus at least be aware of the thirty-six Lamed Wufniks & of the vegeratble Lamb of Tartary.
