Magic and adventure from the golden age of Arthurian legend, The Merlin Chronicles is a superb collection of stories by some of fantasy's bestselling writers. Enter into the darker realms of the age of the Knights of the Round Table, times when magic held sway, when Merlin and the old ways struggled and vied with Arthur's heroic new world - times previously explored in Mike Ashley's The Pendragon Chronicles and The Camelot Chronicles. In this volume you will find: Jane Yolen on Merlin's youth and coming of age; Marion Zimmer Bradley on Nimue, Merlin's lover and doom; Charles de Lint on Merlin's influence through the centuries; Darrell Schweitzer on the legends of Merlin birth; plus Tanith Lee, Peter Tremayne, Phyllis Ann Karr and Jennifer Roberson, among many other writers represented here. There are brand-new stories specially written for this collection, rare gems for the Arthurian scholar and a detailed introduction by Mike Ashley on the mystery and magic of Merlin and his world.
