In The Before Times, There Was Uther

Standard

This picture could be a young Uther. The Romans were gone, Constantine 11 was king. but there were wars among the various tribes, each challenging the other. In those days, it was a magical time, but the reality of the battles for power were made even more fierce with the arrival of the Saxons. They wanted land and tried to take it. One can only speculate on the events of the Dark Ages. It remains hidden, secrets left behind to those who wonder. Imagine the possible stories that could come from such a time. This is what I love, the mystery of it all. To me, it’s provocative.

Merlyn Lives In A Novel, A King In Time

Standard

Read it in Chapter 37 of A King In Time.

Merlyn takes a walk in the snow to investigate the dark forces that are shadowing him and those he holds most dear. He has an encounter with magic fire set loose by an old adversary that leaves a changed Merlyn to return to Pendragon Castle.

“His beard singed nearly off leaving only wisps of hair, turned up at the ends, on either side of his face. His eyebrows also pointed up at his temples like little horns, and in like fashion the very hair on top of his head stood up in a shortened version of what it had been.”

His response to the stares he got when he returned caused him to draw himself up and mumble in his indignant way: “Well? What is it? Can’t a man go for an early morning stroll without everyone peering into his business?

The Green Knight

Standard

“The Green Knight is a late 14th-century Middle English chivalric romance. It is one of the best known Arthurian stories, with its plot combining two types of folklore motifs, the beheading game and the exchange of winnings.

It describes how Sir Gawain, a knight of King Arthur’s Round Table, accepts a challenge from a mysterious “Green Knight” who challenges any knight to strike him with his axe if he will take a return blow in a year and a day. Gawain accepts and beheads him with his blow, at which the Green Knight stands up, picks up his head and reminds Gawain of the appointed time. In his struggles to keep his bargain Gawain demonstrates chivalry and loyalty until his honour is called into question by a test involving Lady Bertilak, the lady of the Green Knight’s castle.”

The Enduring Story Of Arthur The King

Standard

There is a reason why the legend of King Arthur has endured for centuries. Would that any story written by todays authors last for centuries and become so loved. The romance of the legend so captured me as a child that it fostered a passion to learn more about those times. Stories telling of the good fortune of the land to possess a king, so blessed with the attributes of a great leader.

A King In Time – Battle Scenes

Standard

I thought writing a battle scene would be a real challenge. Once I brought all the followers of King Arthur to the high ground, where he waited for the members of an alliance to strengthen his army, the Saxons showed up with wild barbaric shouts and with blood in their eyes. This was not before the King’s archers, with their longbows, pulled and their arrows flew into the Saxon camp at dawn.

Charging over their dead brothers, using them as an assist to get to the high ground to do battle, it began. Shortly, the alliance members arrived just in time to overpower the Saxons and send them away at a crippled run.

There is more, much more. But, that was the scene and all that followed laid out to show the power of an army led by a beloved leader.
