Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By C. A. GARDNER on December 8, 2005
Format: Paperback
These stories were a delightful excursion into the Arthurian mythos, exploring the possibilities, characters, and settings surrounding the legend's end. The stories include some really creative interpretations, strong characterization, and are steeped in the flavor of medieval tales--worthy successors to the original legends. There are moments of pure poetry, as well as plenty of adventure and even humor.
