Author's Notes - The Prince of Elfland and the Errant Hound by A.J. Hall
While Gondal, Angria and Gaaldine are creations of the Bronte children, this particular version of these countries owes rather more to the Marlows’ reinvention of Gondal and Angria in Antonia Forest’s Peter’s Room.
This is set during the two-year sojourn of Sherlock of Gaaldine in Gondal, during 1668-1670. It refers to the events of Gambit Declined. It may be helpful to refer to the website series information, especially the family trees of the Royal Families of Gondal and Gaaldine]for context.
