Let the trumpets sound and the heraldry begin! The world of King Arthur, of enchantment and chivalry, of knights and fair damsels, has been magically brought to life in this magnificent collection of contemporary stories by some of the world’s most famous and distinguished authors. But readers beware. For underneath the idyllic climes of Camelot, the mystical gallantry of Arthur and his brace Knights of the Round Table, and the beauty of his Queen Guinevere, lies a world that is not all peace and light. As these eighteen magical stories illustrate, King Arthur and the era of Camelot are the stuff of legends, but they also contain bloodthirsty greed, lust, and complicated politics. Join many of the finest writers of fantasy and literature in a spellbinding journey to this medieval Arthurian world in Vera Chapman’s “Belle Dame, Sans Merci,” a tale that centers around Arthur’s elder half-sisters before his birth; Peter Tremayne’s “The Oath of the Saxon,” which magnificently translates an old Welsh legend that preordained Arthur’s eventual down-fall; Don Wilcox’s “Blueflow,” which tells of the ever-darkening romance between Guinevere and Lancelot. Step into the romantic realm of P.G. Wodehouse’s magical tale of “Sor Agravaine;” Elizabeth Stuart Phelps’s delves into the famous queen’s fascinating personality; John T. Aquino’s “The Sad Wizard,” in which Merlin the magician attempts to resurrect Camelot in Elizabethan England; and more. Offered here are brand new stories written especially for this collection by Keith Taylor, Phyllis Ann Karr, Don Tremayne. In addition, this unusual and provocative collection contains an in-depth guide to Arthurian names and characters, for armchair scholars and first-time fans alike. So join the long gone world of castles and knights, pageantry and princesses, and return, once more, to the magic and romance known as Camelot.
