AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The Road to Camelot is a collection of stories told by Australian fantasy writers based on the Arthurian legends.

Is hero or heroine born or made? Is someone good or evil from the start? What drives the destiny of those whose names have come down to us in legend?The people of Arthurian legend have never ceased to fascinate us. But what were they really like, as kids, before they knew their destiny? Fourteen of Australia's best writers of fantasy have imagined what it's like to be a child of destiny. Join Arthur, Guinevere, Merlin, Lancelot, Morgana and others as they set out on the road to Camelot (Libraries Australia).

'The heroes and heroines of Arthurian legend have never ceased to fascinate us. But what were they like before they knew their destiny?

As with Nix's other story, 'Under the Lake,' 'Heart's Desire' is also a take on the Lady of the Lake myth. Whereas the first portrays her as a somewhat psychopathic goddess who gives the dubious gift of Excaliber to mankind, the latter explores her relationship to Merlin and the reason behind why she entrapped him beneath the earth.
