Dunsany, through a great deal of little details, about the locations, characters and events, many obviously seen or experienced himself in his extensive travels, makes the tales, at least on the surface, quite believable.
There are occasional glimpses of the prose that graced Dunsany's early fantasies, but generally the language is reportorial and simple, and the incidences of nasty comeuppances of his earlier tales are far fewer.
