A full-length novel about a young King Arthur. No Lancelot or Bedwyr, but there will be characters with similar names. I hope the novel is good, but I can guarantee the culture, technology, and names will be perfectly accurate.
Who are your favorite authors and why?
Arthur C. Clarke; because he was so amazingly creative and had such an excellent grounding in technology and science. Frank Herbert; his vision of humanity's possible futures and his thoughts on ecology were astonishing. Isaac Asimov; he created an entire universe spanning thousands of years with dozens of different characters and story arcs that intermingle - good model. J.R.R. Tolkien; with an excellent grounding in mythology he made his own universe. Marijas Gimbutas; quite a vision of our past. Joseph Campbell; an understanding of our common psyche so deep that I learn from him every time I read a new book.
