What are your favorite versions of the Arthurian legend? My personal fave is TH White's Once and Future King . A distant second is Arthur Rex by Thomas Berger. There are so many great 'spin-offs' too. I'd love to hear about all of them!

One of my favorties that I am reading now is a trilogy by Mary Stewart. It is quite good. I also like the Mists of Avalon.

Yes! I've read the Stewart books... that set includes The Hollow Hills, doesn't it? I've read Mists, also, but I can't recall specifics of it. Stephen Lawhead had an interesting serial going too, the Pendragon Trilogy, or some such title. Thanks for your reply, Romeo!

Yes it does include the Hallow Hills. Yes I am a fan of Lawhead, I just finished reading Bnzyntinum it is an esqusite book and I would much like to find and read his Pendragon Cycle I think it is called.
