The Disappearing Dwarf was first published in 1983. It’s filled with Blaylock’s nearly trademarked bits of whimsy and characters driven by strange monomanias. If you have any love for Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in the Willows, or mouth-watering descriptions of all sorts of food and drink, then these books are for you. Sci-fi & Fantasy.

Comments to eBook The Disappearing Dwarf
Stanober
After many years and readings, I had to replace my paperback version. So I was delighted to see this as an ebook. This is a classic fantasy that ranks at the top along with Tolkein, Carroll, Lewis, and all the other great fabulists. Deceptively simple and enjoyable with a gentle, wry humor that laughs at all too common foibles. One more round with the proofreader would be nice though. There's just enough typos in the ebook version to throw off easy reading.

This book is the sequel to the 'Elfin Ship'. It has the Same bunch of zany and lovable characters as the first book, 'The Elfin Ship', plus a bunch more new characters who are just as zany and crazy. Very enjoyable to continue the adventures of Mr. Bing Cheeser, Dooley and company.

The Elfin Ship and The Disappearing Dwarf have been two of my all time favorite novels for as far back as I can remember. There are very few books that had me in stitches laughing myself stupid, and this one and The Elfin Ship are at the top of the list. The world Blaylock created, the characters, the insane situations and conversations paint a picture of a place I'd dearly love to inhabit. I re-read both novels every few years, and being able to get them both on Kindle has been wonderful, now I no longer have to worry about tattered pages, or losing them ever again.

Jonathon Bing, the Master Cheeser is at it again. Making cheese is important business but so is saving the world. Full of adventure, mystery, and humor, this sequal to the "Elfin Ship" is a must. You think of your children and future children when you read this. It can be hard enough to find, that I bought extra copies of the 2 books to save for my son at 5 years old. He will thank me for them someday. This book has true flavor and charm, very unlike the factory mass made fantasy that is available now. This book had me grinning from ear to ear while reading it.

These books are so delightfully written. They make you laugh out loud, cheer for the characters and regret when you finish the story

A whimsical and enjoyable adventure that is an easy read on a fall afternoon.
The Elfin Ship, and its equally enchanting sequel The Disappearing Dwarf, were easily James Blaylock's finest hour. Set in a parallel land of everyday magic, both of them center around Jonathan Bing, Master Cheesemaker of Twombly Town. Or just "Cheeser," for short.

Blaylock's special gift is to write tales of apparently goofy characters who seem at first glance to be out of touch with reality, but then slowly reveal their essential shrewdness. And by the time the books come to their end, all the seemingly disconnected plot and character threads come together magnificently, like the climax of a well-written symphony, displaying their underlying logic in an impressive way.

Sadly, after these two auspicious beginnings, Blaylock began to stray farther and farther from "pure" fantasy, appearing to prefer contemporary fantasies that are hard on the "contemporary" part and increasingly lighter on the "fantasy." He returned to the Twombly Town setting of the first two books for The Stone Giant (1989), but that was actually a sort of "prequel," giving us the background of the eccentric pirate Theophile Escargot. Three steampunk novels followed -- The Digging Leviathan, Homunculus and Lord Kelvin's Machine. All worthy books, but not up to the high standards set by The Disappearing Dwarf and The Elfin Ship.

His latter novels, from All The Bells On Earth to The Rainy Season, grow largely devoid of fantasy elements altogether. It's as though Blaylock has turned away from his fantastic roots, consciously or otherwise, to concentrate on contemporary fiction. If so, this is a real shame, since his Twombly Town books were fantasies like nothing before or since.

If you can find copies of The Elfin Ship and The Disappearing Dwarf, buy them. Better still, buy several copies, since they've been out of print for some years and were inexplicably never issued in hardcover. These two books represent a master fantasist at his best, before he turned his attentions to other -- and in my opinion, much lesser -- fields. You'll be reading them for years to come.
