Arthuriana is live!
Contributors include:

Please join us at Eye to the Telescope for a noble journey into the world of the Round Table! Issue 27, Arthuriana, January 2018, celebrates the legends that have been such a rich source of inspiration for so many. Responding to everything from modern Arthurian expressions to Celtic legends and medieval romances, from Victorian and Pre-Raphaelite revivals to folk songs, these speculative poems are delightful, funny, profound, and deeply human. Come spend time with Sir Gawain and the Lady of Shalott—Morgan le Fey and King Arthur's court—enchantresses and knights of gold—the hawthorn tree holding Merlin captive, and the cats of Camelot!
With so many variations, all share my enthusiasm for these tales that continue to enchant and haunt us. May the road rise up to meet you on your quest!
