Phyllis Ann Karr The Idylls of the Queen


The arrangements for the dinner party were overseen by Queen Quenevere herself. She selected the apples with her own hands. And before the evening ended, a young knight lay dead…and Arthur's beloved, unfaithful queen stood branded as a murderess and condemned to death! <P> Phyllis Ann Karr has taken Celtic legend and given it a fresh new twist in this magical murder-mystery of knights and sorcery, romantic entanglements and courtly intrigues. This is a tale that explores the passions and motivations of the men and women who stride through the pages of Mallory's romance: Sir Kay, the sharp-tongued seneschal; Nimue, the elusive Lady of the Lake; Morgan le Fay, Merlin's complex nemesis; the tormented sons of Lot and Morgawse; and Mordred, Arthur's own bitter, terrified son! <P> "In The Idylls of the Queen, Phyllis Ann Karr takes an incident (the murder of Sir Patrise) from Thomas Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur and creates an intelligent, complex, and fascinating mystery novel perfect for fans of historical mysteries, of British legends, and of fantasy." – Cynthia Ward

Alfred Tennyson Idylls of the King


A cycle of twelve narrative poems, «Idylls of the King» retells the classic legends of King Arthur and his time. Based primarily on Malory's «Le Morte d'Arthur» and the classic epic poem «Mabinogion», «Idylls» is not just a copy of past works but rather an expansion of the legend, a competent and worthy addition to the genre of Arthurian literature. The twelve idylls respectively tell the stories of: The Coming of Arthur, Gareth and Lynette, The Marriage of Geraint, Geraint and Enid, Balin and Balan, Merlin and Vivien, Lancelot and Elaine, The Holy Grail, Pelleas and Ettare, The Last Tournament, Guinevere, and The Passing of Arthur.

Phyllis Ann Karr Inquisitor Dreams


Spanish Inquisitor Don Felipe considers himself a loyal servant of Holy Church. Despite his lifelong friendship with the Jewish Gamito, despite the courtly love for their Islamic playfellow's sister that inspired him to celibacy and the priesthood (not necessarily in that order). Despite his own secret sin, despite his own arrest and long imprisonment in midlife by the Inquisition he serves, despite his love for and private marriage with the barren Romany woman Pilar.<P> Why, then, these nightmares that recurrently trouble his sleep, in which his ancestress the heretic Raymonde and purported descendant the Pagan Rosemary guide him through terrible visions of the evil humans do to one another in the name of righteousness?

Lesley-Ann Jones Bohemian Rhapsody. The Definitive Biography of Freddie Mercury


The true story behind the Oscar-winning, Golden-Globe-winning film. 'Exactly the sort of tribute Mercury himself would have wanted' Spectator'No one has captured better than Lesley-Ann Jones the magical, enchanting dualism of Freddie Mercury' The Times 'Truly definitive, truly Freddie, an energetic, entertaining and essential account' Sir Tim Rice 'This book grabs you with its opening, then builds. Insight and anecdote in perfect harmony' Simon Napier-Bell 'At last a massive tribute to a massive talent' Steve Harley, Cockney Rebel This is the definitive biography of Freddie Mercury, written by award-winning rock journalist Lesley-Ann Jones, who toured widely with Queen and formed lasting friendships with the band. Now, having secured access to the remaining band members and those who were closest to Freddie from childhood to death, Lesley-Ann has written the most in-depth account of one of music's best loved and most complex figures. Meticulously researched, sympathetic, unsensationalised, the book focuses on the period in the 1980s when Queen began to fragment, before their Live Aid performance put them back in the frame. In her journey to understand the man behind the legend, Lesley-Ann Jones has travelled from London to Zanzibar to India. Packed with exclusive interviews and told with the invaluable perspective that the twenty years since Mercury's death presents, Bohemian Rhapsody is the most up-to-date portrait of a legendary man.

Lord Alfred Tennyson Idylls Of The King

Gustave Dore Doré's Illustrations for Idylls of the King


Like his contemporary, the English poet laureate Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Gustave Dor&#233; (1832&#8211;83) was highly regarded for his mastery of technique. One of the most prolific and successful book illustrators of the late nineteenth century, he provided a wealth of hauntingly beautiful illustrations for the first four parts of Idylls of the King, Tennyson's classic poetic treatment of the Arthurian legends. This volume contains meticulous reproductions of all 36 plates from rare English editions published in 1867&#8211;69.Like many of his other works, Dor&#233;'s illustrations for the Idylls possess great drama, detail, and power, overlaid with a melancholy, otherworldly mood. His masterly technique is abundantly evident in splendid, idealized scenes illustrating the romantic involvements of four lovely ladies: «the fair Elaine,» much enamored of Lancelot; Guinevere, Arthur's perfidious queen; Enid, the wife of Geraint, one of Arthur's knights; and the «wily Vivien,» a scheming beauty who attempts to seduce the wizard Merlin.Accompanied by synopses and appropriate quotations from Tennyson's poem, Dor&#233;'s illustrations bring these marvelous legends to vivid life.

Alfred Tennyson Idylls of the King


A cycle of twelve narrative poems, “Idylls of the King” is Alfred Tennyson’s classic 19th century retelling of Arthurian legend. Linked by their common focus, these poems relate the stories of King Arthur’s ascent to power, quest to create a perfect kingdom, and his eventual defeat. Included in this epic work are the stories of Arthur’s love for Guinevere, their marriage, and her betrayal. Much of the work is also devoted to the exploits of the knights of the round table as well as the involvement of the wizard Merlin. Tennyson relied heavily on previous Arthurian works including Sir Thomas Malory’s “Le Morte d’Arthur”, which was first published in 1485, and the “Mabinogion”, one of the earliest prose stories of Britain, one based on older oral traditions, written during the 12th century. However, “Idylls of the King” is not merely a retelling of the same stories of these previous works, but rather an expansion of the legend and an effort to bring the concerns and values of Victorian England to these timeless tales. Tennyson’s poems are a complex, beautiful, and thoughtful addition to the genre of Arthurian literature. This edition includes a biographical afterword.

Phyllis Ann Karr The Bloody Herring


A Fantasy Historical Romance of the First Decade of Papa's Pride, by Clea Ortiz Newcome—but actually a Gilbert & Sullivan Fantasy in Space Opera Framework, by Phyllis Ann Karr! <P> Some have told me that the events of Ship Years 8 and 9 were far too terrible to use as underpinning for a light fantasy romance, and one that in any case can appeal chiefly to the hundred or so avid Savoyards in the ship's population. My response is that light treatment has been among humanity's most effective defense mechanisms for dealing with disaster, probably since our race became recognizably human back in Old Earth's paleolithic; and that Savoy enthusiasm is as precious in Papa's Pride as any other artifact of our Old Earth heritage.<P> In any case, these things lie more than half a century in our own past, and if half a century does not make them fair game for historical fantasy, what does? Is the past not the past, whether ten or ten thousand years ago, whether back on Old Earth or out here in our great colony starship of twenty-four pylons revolving around a vast central core?<P> While retaining the names of such entities as the Antique Terra Theater, which had not yet split into the Order-sponsored Old Earth Company and the committee-sponsored Players to the Stars, with their respective screenplay arms Universal Aspirations and Pride Productions, I have fictionalized the names and other aspects of individuals actually involved in Chuck Wang's crime – the worst ever perpetrated and, we hope, ever to be perpetrated in Papa's Pride. I have added some completely fictional people to the cast, omitted many historical figures entirely, and somewhat condensed, even rearranged, certain of the events. There were never any deliberate murders connected with Wang's outrage, at least as far as we know. Shipnet will make it very easy for interested readers to collate my tale with as much as we have of the truth.

Phyllis Ann Karr The Deathguards


The Timelines Keep Trying to Realign! Our neighboring timeline also had its 20th-century warfare. But Act II of their Last Great War, 1939-1945, lined up somewhat differently, with Russia, India, Spain, and Japan versus England, France, Germany, and the Reformed States of America. Now, in the decade following the War, the small university town of Hodag Crossing in the state of Minnemagantic, along with the rest of the world, is hunting down deathguards – the war criminals of Stalin's Eugenics Farms and India's Kali Camps. These include the college years of Clement Czarny, who has learned that all a vampire like him has to do to function in a world filled with crosses, sunlight, and the rest of it, is live like a saint. Meaning that, as a vampire, he must forgive. <P>Everything. <P>Whether it's a would-be Van Helsing who wanted to stake Clement himself, or a deathguard who helped kill millions.<P> Everything.<P> Even if it costs his own romance. And maybe that's what makes vampires unfit to live among normal, honest, righteous people.

Phyllis Tickle Hungry Spring and Ordinary Song


"I think that Phyllis was a poet first and foremost, before anything else. Here she has attentively gathered all of the poems she wished to preserve from the last half century. A handful of them were written in the last few years. This book should surprise a lot of people. Its honesty leaves me breathless." —Jon M. Sweeney, editor of Phyllis Tickle: Essential Spiritual Writings (Orbis), and author of the biography, Phyllis Tickle(forthcoming)
"Fierce-minded, Phyllis Tickle's poems place us in the most central of human concerns, namely the lifelong search for rest, fellowship, peace, and grace. Her best poems—"The Cranes," for instance—teach us that we, too, are only «migratory,» moving from one place to another and that there has always been a voice «like manna…/Come from another land/To say,/‘This way! This way!'» Her poems, like her whole life, heeded that voice, inviting us all to follow. " —Jeff Hardin, author of Notes for a Praise Book and Restoring the Narrative
"Phyllis Tickle uses words as Vermeer used paint; both bring a unique light to their work. The page became a canvas, and master writer Phyllis Tickle's pen brushed her life, family, and friends, then framed them in a sense of place. Hungry Spring and Ordinary Song reaches from the bottom of her soul to the top of her heart and mind. Phyllis never holds anything back. This book is a masterpiece that will hang in our memory galleries forever." —Margaret Britton Vaughn, Poet Laureate of Tennessee
Phyllis Tickle (1934-2015) was a writer, poet, book publisher, and journalist. She was the founding religion editor at Publishers Weekly and a leading voice in the Emerging Christianity movement. She was also the author of nearly forty books including The Divine Hours series and The Great Emergence. The mother of seven children, for 38 years she lived with her husband, Sam, on The Farm in Lucy, TN.
