Here Lies Arthur
Myrddin is a renowned bard; a conman, a traveller and a teller of tales. His sidekick Gwyna is just a small mouse of a girl but with Myrddin's transforming power she becomes a warrior, a spy or a goddess. Maybe Myrddin's magic is powerful enough to turn a warband leader into the greatest hero of all time?
This is a miniature masterpiece; at once a sparkling and emotionally engaging reimagining of how the legend of King Arthur might really have been created, a clever historical detective fiction and a superbly crafted tale about the immense power of story.
