A Collection of Original Arthurian Stories
edited by Jane Yolen
Is there a proper way to school a future king? A mystery about Sir Gawain and the Green Knight we have yet to discover? Another explanation for the Sword in the Stone? And will King Arthur return? Or has he?
Arthur, Gawain, Mordred. The names and tales of Camelot ring through the centuries as clear and as true as when they were first uttered. They have captivated readers and listeners, regaled them with heroism, romance, and daring.
Now, for all those who go on loving Camelot, Jane Yolen has gathered ten enchanting new stories by preeminent contemporary fantasy storytellers, masters of the craft such as Anne McCaffrey, Diana Paxson, Terry Pratchett, and Nancy Springer. Woven together with wit and charm, and accompanied by full-color illustrations by Winslow Pels, the tales in this anthology create a powerful classic for readers of all ages in our own day.
Jane Yolen discovered Camelot and the legends of King Arthur at the age of eight and has been hooked ever since. She is the prize-winning author of more than 150 books, including Owl Moon, winner of the 1988 Caldecott Medal, What Rhymes with Moon?, and most recently, Old Dame Counterpane, all for Philomel. Ms. Yolen lives with her husband, David Stemple, in a farmhouse in Hatfield, Massachusetts, and in Scotland during the summer, close by the castles and fortresses, just like her beloved King Arthur.
Winslow Pels received a Bachelor's of Science in Fine Art from Skidmore College. In addition to creating television and movie posters, Ms. Pels has illustrated many children's books, including Noble-Hearted Kate by Marianna Mayer, Stone Soup, by Ann McGovern, and The Magic Fish, by Freya Littledale. Camelot is her first book with Philomel. Ms. Pels and her husband live on a small farm in rural Pennsylvania.
