Do you know which Arthurian legend books are best with Arthur and Morgana? I've only read The Mists of Avalon, and The Road to Avalon, so far.
I think those two are the best ones! But these are pretty good too:
- Firelord (Parke Godwin): This is a really well written book and it has both Guinevere/Arthur and Arthur/Morgana. I admit I preferred the Guinevere/Arthur side but the love story between Morgana and Arthur is interesting too.
- Bedivere Book One: The king’s right hand (Wayne Wise): This is only on smashword/amazon as ebook and there are not the sequels yet, but it is good to be read as an only book too. It’s about Bedivere and he is the narrator and during the novel he meets various character, among them Morgana and he sees the love between Morgana and Arthur grow.
- Morgana (Michel Rio) (and the rest of the trilogy: Merlin, Arthur). This has the inconvenience of being only in French or in Italian.
Thanks for the recommendation!
I only saw Lou Reed once, at the Syria Mosque in Pittsburgh on the Mistrial tour. My then girlfriend broke up with me that night and two days later The Cramps didn’t show up for a show I went to.
Thanks for posting this!
For the third interview I asked Wayne Wise and he kindly said yes! You probably know that recently I’ve read Wise’s arthurian novel Bedivere Book One: The King’s Right Hand and I loved it and its originality. I found the courage to ask Wayne Wise some questions about his arthurian novel (and, egoistically, when we would be able to read the sequel) and these are his answers!
I’d really like to thank Wayne Wise for his kindness and disponibility for this little email interview. And I’d like to remember you that you can find his website and his novels on http://www.wayne-wise.com/, while at this page (or on smashwords) you can find informations on how to buy his Bedivere Book One: The King’s Right Hand. Seriously, it doesn’t cost much and it is a very deserving arthurian novel!
WARNING: My questions and the answers may contain minor spoilers.
Here’s a great review of my Arthurian novel Bedivere: The King’s Right Hand. Thanks for the kind words!
I miss 20 pages to the end but I wanted to write something about it immediately because I am really loving this novel but unfortunately it’s not very known. You can find it here.
The novel is the first of a trilogy (I suppose) which I hope will continue soon. It is about Bediere who is narrator and protagonist. In the story an old Bedivere, post Camlann, decides to write down his memories of Arthur and Camelot.
One of the things Ioved a lot of this way of narration was how Bediere often compared reality to the legend, talking about what people say happened and what really happened. Sometimes the narrator doesn’t remember everything, being Bedivere quite old, and trust the legends or what his friends told him (for example in a point, he says “Tristan said that… it seems strange to me and I didn’t rememeber it, so I asked Tristan what he said. But we all know that Tristan is a liar” or something like this). The book narrates from Bedivere’s childhood, alongside his best friend Arthur, Arthur’s adoptive brother Kay and Ector to Arthur as king, in his first years of kingship.
I would absolutely recommend this book to everyone. Of course there were things I didn’t like, for example how sometimes the characters talked in a bit unrealistic way just to give information to the reader, but generically speaking it’s a good book.
So I met Cherie Currie last week in San Francisco. Here’s my blog about her show (and about a bunch of other music stuff as well).
Friday was a beautiful night for books.
Thanks to everyone who helped make the Little Book Fair a success.
Here are some photos in case ya missed it.
Saw Joan Jett at Mountain Fest in Morgantown West Virginia last night. I met her briefly, long enough to shake hands, say Hi and Thanks!
