She was magical, beautiful beyond belief -- and completely alone...
The unicorn had lived since before memory in a forest where death could touch nothing. Maidens who caught a glimpse of her glory were blessed by enchantment they would never forget. But outside her wondrous realm, dark whispers and rumours carried a message she could not ignore: "Unicorns are gone from the world."
Aided by a bumbling magician and an indomitable spinster, she set out to learn the truth. but she feared even her immortal wisdom meant nothing in a world where a mad king's curse and terror incarnate lived only to stalk the last unicorn to her doom...

Peter S. Beagle was born in 1939 and raised in the Bronx, where he grew up surrounded by the arts and education: both his parents were teachers, three of his uncles were world-renowned gallery painters, and his immigrant grandfather was a respected writer, in Hebrew, of Jewish fiction and folktales. As a child Peter used to sit by himself in the stairwell of the apartment building he lived in, staring at the mailboxes across the way and making up stories to entertain himself. Today, thanks to classics like THE LAST UNICORN, A FINE AND PRIVATE PLACE, and "Two Hearts," he is a living icon of fantasy fiction.
In addition to eight novels and over one hundred pieces of short fiction, Peter has written many teleplays and screenplays (including the animated versions of THE LORD OF THE RINGS and THE LAST UNICORN); six nonfiction books (among them the classic travel memoir I SEE BY MY OUTFIT); the libretto for one opera; and more than seventy published poems and songs. He currently makes his home in Oakland, California.
On his birthday in 2013 Peter and Conlan Press launched a screening tour of THE LAST UNICORN film that has so far put on more than 300 screenings in the United States, Canada, Germany, and Austria, and which will appear in several thousand different theaters around the world by the end of 2016.
