       Additional Information  
     
      James Branch Cabell (1879-1956) is best known for his tales of the imaginary land of Poictesme, where chivalry and galantry live on. All of Cabell's works from before 1930 were assembled into the grand "Biography of the Life of Manuel," the supposed redeemer of the land of Poictesme, and they form a series which follows Manuel and his descendants through the centuries.
    Cabell has been a favorite author of many famous writers, ranging from Lin Carter to Robert A. Heinlein.
