The whole world knows and loves this book. It is the magical epic of King Arthur and his shining Camelot; of Merlin and Owl and Guinevere; of beasts who talk and men who fly, of wizardry and war. It is the book of all things lost and wonderful and sad. It is the fantasy masterpiece by which all others are judged.

In 1938 he published The Sword in the Stone, the first volume in what would become his epic retelling of Arthurian legends, The Once and Future King. Neil Gaiman (series introduction) is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than twenty books for readers of all ages, including American Gods, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, The Graveyard Book, Coraline, and the Sandman series of graphic novels. He is Professor in the Arts at Bard College.


I have laughed at [White s] great Arthurian novel and cried over it and loved it all my life. Ursula K. Le Guin I have read [this] book more times than any other in my library. Lev Grossman, #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of the Magicians Trilogy Intense and rich . . . Full of insights, scenes, and flourishes that are really quite astonishing. Jane Smiley, <i>The Guardian</i>
