In this our ancient tradition of tale-spinning, readers are blessed with a treasure trove of truly sacred places.
Places that have transcended the bonds of space and time to live eternally as legend -- in the stories told by the old and in the dreams that rise, unbidden, in the hearts of the young. Magic places where human and faery meet in friendly rivalry; where wizardry still holds sway over dry science; where romance not only lives but flourishes, clothed in the long robes of the imagination.
One such place is Camelot.
In this superb collection of unforgettable stories, the multitalented artist/writer Janny Wurts, one of today's best-selling fantasy authors, takes the reader to a very special and deeply familiar Camelot that is both deeply familiar, as well as down byways which themselves are delightfully strange. She tells of the Eld Tree that is the link to the fey world, and of the terrible price that must be paid for cutting it; of the suburban children who find and bury an alien; of the elvenkind that emulate the wolf to protect themselves from man; of the horses that rose, and still rise, from the sea.
Here are myriad wonders, all rendered with an artist's eye and a writer's voice. Janny Wurts' many fans will be delighted to discover that she has included her popular tales of the space pirate MacKenzie James. And new and old readers alike will be moved by the title story, in which a dying boy's impossible last wish -- to see with his own eyes the Court of King Arthur -- comes magnificently true.
That Way Lies Camelot is a book that proves what Wurts' legions of readers already know: The worlds of fantasy will live on as long as there are sorcerers such as Janny Wurts, with the vision and the skill to bring them to life in the minds of each new generation of readers.
"Janny Wurts brings an artist's eye for detail and mood to the field of fantasy writing."
--Robert Lynn Asprin
"A gifted creator of wonder."
--Raymond E. Feist
