The Last Unicorn is one of the great fantasy novels of the 20th Century.  Since its publication in 1968 it has never been out of print, with 6 million-plus copies sold around the world, and it has been translated into more than 20 languages. The animated movie, version released in 1982, has been seen by hundreds of millions of people, and after 25 years is still showing regularly on cable and satellite.
In 2005, author Peter S. Beagle finally returned to his classic characters—Shmendrick the Magician, Molly Grue, King Lir, and the unicorn herself – in a coda story called “Two Hearts.” Readers everywhere were thrilled, and “Two Hearts” went on to win the Hugo Award for Best Novelette of the Year.
This Deluxe Edition of The Last Unicorn brings the original classic tale and its extraordinary sequel together in one volume for the first time.
