Synopsis

The Arthurian epic that began in Mad Merlin continues in Lancelot du Lethe, the story of the greatest knight, paramour, and traitor the Round Table has ever known.

The story of Lancelot is one of striving for perfection only to fall short due to the sins of the flesh. But in Lancelot du Lethe the knight is only partially of the mortal realm. He and Guinevere share a mystical bond of which Arthur cannot be a part, for they are both of the bloodline of the fey, immortally destined to be betrothed. This ensuing war of loyalties and love threatens the uneasy peace not just mortal realm but of the entire netherworld of the multipantheons of gods as well.

Drawing from Joseph Campbell, and from sources both historical and literary, this is a new take on the story of Camelot's most famous knight, told as only the author of Mad Merlin can.

Lancelot's capture by the Four Queens, his rescue of Guinevere from Meleagaunce and other familiar adventures are intermixed with a mishmash of Roman, Celtic and Christian mythology, loosely glued together by a paramysticism reminiscent of Bradley's The Mists of Avalon.

When Merlin first sees the newborn Lancelot he knows that the infant will one day destroy all that King Arthur accomplished at Mount Badon and Camelot.
