The Arthurian legend as it has never been told before . . .

The myth of King Arthur has been told countless ways since the sixth century, always combining action, adventure, romance, and tragedy. In Arthur Rex, Thomas Berger updates the legend in irreverent fashion, forever changing King Arthur and his Round Table. In Berger’s medieval England, the damsel in distress is never what she appears to be. Merlin is a wizard of a completely different stripe. Classic heroes and villains are vividly reimagined, breathing fresh life into a familiar story. Powerful, emotional, and at times laugh-out-loud funny, Arthur Rex is an unforgettable tribute to one of the most celebrated tales of all time. This ebook features an all-new introduction by Thomas Berger, as well as an illustrated biography of the author including rare images and never-before-seen documents from his personal collection.

Berger's Arthurian cycle is not a put-on—at least not entirely so; Chaucer might have found it ""bitwixen ernest and game."" Like Who Is Teddy Villanova? and Little Big Man, it stands certain valorous traditions on their heads while implicitly acknowledging their continued power to move us.
