The Prophecies of Merlin" Second Edition first printed by Badius in of one of the most important documents of Anglo-Norman literature. The fact that thereafter the Arthurian cycle was mediated primarily through the mid-fifteenth-century Morte d'Arthur of Sir Thomas Malory should not detract from the position of Geoffrey of Monmouth as its great originator.

The figure of King Leir[Lear] seems to have been Geoffrey's original creation. And arguably the most successful. Indeed, Tatlock described the Leir story along with the vogue of Arthur as Geoffrey's greatest contribution to the world. Shakespeare's play is based on various accounts of the semi-legendary Celtic figure. King Leir of Britain. Shakespeare's most immediate source was probably Raphael Holinshed's Chronicles. Holinshed himself found the story in the much earlier Historia Regum Britanniae by Geoffrey of Monmouth. Geoffrey's Historia makes Britain's foundation contiguous with classical myth.

John Joseph Merlin

In our country, One Hundred Years of Solitude is a book that, more than any other, gives young writers the permission and the courage to stray from the path of strict realism and Gordon Lish-style minimalism to which creative writing graduate programs all over the country seem so determined to steer them. The year , it must be noted, only brought us a very few good novels of the type, but this spike downward seems to be temporary, as I've already received several good Tolkienesque novels to review for the year On the whole, the lines drawn by publishers, bookstore managers, and critics between mainstream fiction and genre fiction continue to get blurrier every year, and I long for a day when all these books sit side by side on a shelf marked Fiction.

Modern bookselling being what it is, however, books are still organized and sold by category labels, leading a group of writers from the fantasy and science fiction genres to come up with a label of their own: interstitial fiction. Here's a brief excerpt from the somewhat but not entirely tongue-in-cheek Interstitial Arts Manifesto : Perhaps you've had this experience. You read a book, go to a gallery opening, attend a concert. You come out exhilarated, excited, enthralled. Pressed, you can find analogies. A book is a "magic realist Victorian biography in the guise of a mystery novel.

It is art that is hard to pigeonhole, hard to describe in one simple sentence, art that lies in the interstices, between the cracks of recognized genres. It is Interstitial Art. Our society likes to divide its arts into tidy categories. When we walk into a bookstore, we rarely see all the newly written novels sitting side-by-side. Instead, they are divided into categories, subcategories, and genres.

There's a special section for novels containing crimes and mysteries; a special section for books by women, by gay and by black authors Of course, labels can be useful. Such labels enable merchants and marketers to treat creation as Product, to be sold and marketed in mass quantities. For consumers, labels mean we have to spend less of our precious time distinguishing one created work from another. Genre label equals recognizable product, with clearly defined parameters and narrowly allowable variations within each one.

For artists working in forms that fall between the genre cracks, too often these labels are arbitrary and ill-fitting. As Interstitial Artists, we believe that fine art can be made within any genre, and from even the most unlikely of materials and their combinations , provided it is done with skill and style. A Mexican-American woman writes her autobiography as a magic realist tale that includes both poems and recipes House of Houses by Pat Mora.

An American jazz composer finds classical Indian musicians who will play his tunes and improvise their own Antigravity by Warren Senders. Carlos Nakai. A British-Portuguesepainter draws on traditional fairy-tale images to create a perverse, sensual, feminist dialogue Paula Rego. A comic book weaves together myth and gender, history, literature, and complex illustration Neil Gaiman's The Sandman. A "folksinger" incorporates Sufi prayer and Scottish pipes in a meditation on mortality Loreena McKennitt.

How do you label it all? What do you call it? We call it Interstitial Art: a label for art that can't be labeled, a definition for work that can't be defined.

For other good discussions and observations on the state of the contemporary fantasy and horror fields, I recommend the archives of the Event Horizon web site, www.

Brown in Locus magazine. Having taken a general look at the state of fantasy publishing in , let's turn to the books that were published last year and some recommended titles broken down by type those pesky labels again. As usual, I won't claim to have read every magical, mythical, or surrealist work published in this country and abroad in , but I made a darn good stab at it.

Here are the best books I found among the five-hundred-odd books we received for review gathered by my hard-working assistant editors, Richard and Mardelle Kunz. We think there were some real gems among them, and we hope that you'll agree. In the strongest area of fantasy fiction was, hands down, in Young Adult books. In recognition of the strong contribution made by YA writers to our field in , you'll find seven of the best YA fantasy titles listed among this year's Top Twenty, recommended to readers of all ages.

It's the story of a boy who finds a broken man with tattered wings huddled in the garden shed. Michael shares this strange and troubling secret only with his new friend, Mina, while his sister lies in the hospital and life crumbles around his family. Skellig , which won England's Whitbread Award, is a rare and beautiful book, full of art, owls, natural history, and the poetry of William Blake.

Tamsin by Peter S. Beagle Roc : One of our field's best writers turns his hand to YA fiction in this suspenseful tale of ghosts, faeries, and medieval history, set on a ramshackle English farm. Beagle does a fine job of bringing modern and Jacobean characters together, mixed with large dollops of British folklore, in a tale that hinges on the bloody history of the Monmouth rebellion in Dorset, in the time of King James II. The Folk Keeper by Franny Billingsley Atheneum : This atmospheric YA novel is told through the voice of young Corin Stonewall, a fiercely independent orphan who has cut off her long, uncanny silver hair and disguised herself as a boy in order to become a keeper of the "Folk" dangerous subterranean creatures who will despoil the land and livestock if not kept regularly appeased.

A dying man's bequest takes Corin away from her underground world to the halls of a vast seaside estate. Here she comes face to face with a past full of secrets, tragedy, and magic. The narrative voice here is an uncommon one, and the imaginary world convincing, even though we see only a corner of it. Billingsley uses standard folklore ingredients, including a wealth of selkie seal-people legends, but she cooks them up into a highly original, memorable story.

The Rainy Season by James P. Blaylock Ace : Blaylock's chilling ghost tale is set in the author's usual territory of southern California, combining modern and nineteenth-century characters in a taut psychological drama. Phil Ainsworth, photographer and widower, is the sole guardian of a young orphaned niece, who comes to live with him in the rambling old house he inherited from his mother.

Unlike so many supernatural stories, which get bogged down by their special effects, Blaylock uses the magical elements to explore characters and their relationships. The Rainy Season is yet another gem from the man Library Journal correctly called "one of the most distinctive contributors to American magic realism.

This reckless, destructive part of himself dominated his troubled youth hustling on the streets of Boston and his subsequent years in New York City addicted to drugs, drink, power, anything that would bring another rush. Kevin's Shadow isn't just a metaphor, however, it's a doppelganger with a life of its own.

In order to confront it, he must also confront the dark years of the past and his brutal life story. This is a novel about coming of age the hard way, and the things we do to survive. Minions of the Moon shows this World Fantasy Award-winning author at the top of his form, recommended for fans of dark fantasy of the Neil Gaiman or Jonathan Carroll sort. Enchantment by Orson Scott Card Del Rey : The latest novel from this multi-award-winning author is a unique adult retelling of the Sleeping Beauty legend, set in a Carpathian forest and linking the ninth and twentieth centuries.

Now a grown man, he is haunted by vivid memories of the old country, particularly one from his last days there, when he stumbled into a clearing in a forest where a woman lay fast asleep. Ivan returns to Russiaeventually and finds the clearing once more. This time he kisses his princess awake and follows her back into time. Enchantment is a bewitching book from a writer who can spin even lesser materials into gold. Here he has all of Russian folklore and history to work with, and the result is pure magic.

For some Carroll fans, it's the best one yet; for others and I'm among them , the ending disappoints. Nonetheless, Carroll is one of the most consistently original authors in the dark fantasy field. His skill at character study alone makes this a Top Twenty book not to mention his habit of tossing off breathtakingly insightful metaphors every other page , whatever your opinion of the plot.

Then Carroll pulls out all the stops. The King of Shadows is a smaller tale, a beautifully crafted YA time-travel novel about a young American actor who travels to England with a boys' theater troupe and finds himself transported back to Shakespeare's time. This book works on three levels at once: as a fantasy tale, as an impeccably researched historical novel about life at the old Globe Theater, and as a deeply moving psychological story exploring the nature of death, loss, eternity, and art.

If you can finish the last page with a dry eye, you're a better man than I. The Birchbark House by Louise Erdrich Hyperion Press : The winner of last year's World Fantasy Award for The Antelope Wife is back with another warm-hearted tale infused with Native American myth and history, this time written for young readers, but ageless in its appeal.

Little Frog is the sole survivor of her tribe's disastrous first contact with Europeans. Taken in by an Ojibway family on Madeline Island in Lake Superior, Little Frog and the reader are gently drawn into Ojibway culture over the course of four seasons. The book is illustrated with delicate black and white drawings by the author. The protagonist is Cley, the physiognomist of the previous book, who has turned his back on his former calling. The Well-Built City has fallen. Cley's allies are building a new society in the ruins. But the tyrannical Drachton Below has unleashed a plague of never-ending sleep, and Cley must find the antidote, journeying into the landscape and "memory palace" of Drachton Below's mind.

Ford's story the middle volume of a trilogy is toldin hypnotically beautiful prose, making fascinating use of Renaissance ideas about the nature of memory. It's the story of an elephant named Young Mud, adopted into the She-S clan when her own is decimated by ivory hunters and drought in the sub-Sahara.

When this clan, too, is nearly wiped out, the survivors set off on a cross-continental quest to find the legendary White Bone, in hope that this will lead them to the Safe Place away from us humans. Much more than just "the Watership Down of elephants," this is a mystical tale of epic proportions that brings the African landscape vividly to life. The White Bone is a remarkable achievement, a rousing good read, and a painful one. The book's nomination for several major awards comes as no surprise.

Black Light by Elizabeth Hand HarperCollins : Hand's sixth novel is related to Waking the Moon and other "Kamensic" stories , a modern mythic tale that falls in the shadow realm between fantasy and horror. Seventeen-year-old Charlotte Moylan is the precocious daughter of actors who were once involved with the film director Axel Kern, a Warhol-like figure who lords it over the seedier side of the New York art world. Charlotte has been raised in Kamensic Village, an upstate town with more than its share of dark pagan mysteries.

Kern maintains a mansion there but hasn't set foot in it for years. Now he's coming back to throw the mother of all Halloween parties, to which the Moylans are invited. Thus the stage is set for a sensual, diabolical novel chock full of Hand's usual preoccupations: old gods in this case, Dionysis and Ariadne , pagan rites in the contemporary world, artists and their acolytes, sinister secret societies, witches, warlocks, and mystics.

Black Light is ingeniously plotted, suspenseful, and skillfully written. When the two pair up to seek Edmund's missing past, adventure and peril are in store. If Nina Hoffman isn't yet as well known as Alice Hoffman or de Lint, novels like this one indicate that it's only a matter of time. It's a clever resetting of the Cinderella story in a market town in seventeenth-century Holland. Maguire tells most of the tale through the eyes of Iris, a plain, intelligent child whose mother marries a tulip merchant possessed of a strange and beautiful daughter.

The other stepsister is the oxlike, gentle Ruth, apparently retarded. Maguire beautifully evokes the world of Dutch burghers, painters, and tulipspeculators as he explores the nature of beauty, art, and the stories we tell about our lives. One day a coffin washes ashore, with a perfectly preserved dead sailor inside. This sets off a long chain of events involving a mysterious shape-shifting spirit, an elf in amber, a lighthouse keeper, a mute girl, a parlor maid and her false lover, an Inuit child, and an old woman in a tower by the sea.

Part fairy tale, part historical novel of the Louis de Bernieres variety, it's a splendid book, laced with wit, compassion, and Rilke's poetry. Her latest is a collaboration with Richard Tchen, focusing on "Rumplestiltskin" this time. It's the story of Tommaso Arista, son of two famous chefs in a magical Florence in which cooking is inextricably bound with politics and sorcery.

This one's a delight, pure fun, and comes complete with recipes. The Orpheus myth is at the center of this extravagant book about the undying love between a supernaturally gifted Indian musician and a strong-willed half-Indian diva as seen through the eyes of another one of her lovers, a world-renowned photographer. Set in a universe parallel to our own, Rushdie plays fast and loose with history, celebrity iconography, and popular culture in a book in which the language is as intoxicating as the breathless, globe-trotting plot. Rushdie has become a writer so good that it's almost frightening.

It tells an unhappy tale about three very unlucky children. Even though they are charming and clever, the Baudelaire siblings lead lives filled with misery and woe. In this short bookalone, the three youngsters encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune, and cold porridge for breakfast. It is an exceedingly unpleasant book, and wickedly funny. The Intuitionist by Colson Whitehead Anchor : Whitehead's interstitial novel could be called mystery, science fiction, fantasy, alternate history, or all of the above.

It takes place in an unnamed, high-rise city much like Manhattan with nineteenth century, twentieth century, and near-future elements , and is the story of Lila Mae Watson, the city's first black, female elevator inspector. When an elevator comes crashing down soon after Watson inspected and certified it, she smells a rat somewhere in the old boys' network of the Department of Elevator Inspectors. In the guise of a stylish noir thriller, Whitehead skewers race and gender issues, riffs on history past and the future, and all the while tells a damn good tale. Highly recommended. The Shadow of Ararat by Thomas Harlan Tor is a sweeping, epic-length novel set in an alternate version of the seventh-century, in which the Roman Empire still stands.

Brimming with myth, magic, well-researched historical speculation, cleverly plotted military strategies, and a far-flung cast of vivid characters, this is Must Reading for anyone who likes muscular adventure fantasy written with intelligence and panache. Rhapsody by Elizabeth Haydon Tor is a superior quest-type fantasy about an excourtesan and her companions on the run from magical forces. There are flourishes reminiscent of Angela Carter and Isaac Bashevis Singer in this unusual magic realist tale, which follows four generations of women from Eastern Europe to America.

Other noteworthy debuts: The Angle Quickest for Flight by Steven Kotler Four Walls Eight Windows Press is a contemporary quest novel about the search for an ancient manuscript believed to contain Jesus's own words by a runaway boy in Santa Fe, a semi-retired smuggler, a sinister Catholic mystic, and an albino Rastafarian rock climber. It's an uneven book with distinct first-novel flaws, but also erudite and uncommon. This murder mystery is set in an alternate version of our own world where pagan magic is real and its practitioners are in conflict with Christian and other religious groups.

The book is fast-paced and enjoyable, if not particularly original, and most notable for the well-advertised fact that the author is fourteen years old. James P. Here are four more books that I strongly recommend, by three of the fantasy field's best authors and one talented newcomer: Dark Cities Underground by Lisa Goldstein Tor is an intriguing book that ought to be longer, packed so full of characters human and inhuman , ideas, and convoluted plot twists that at pages it whizzes by with the speed of the subway trains at its heart.

Jeremy Jones is running from disturbing memories of his childhood, as well as from the fame of his mother's children's books set in a land called Neverwas , tales secretly drawn from young Jeremy's own experiences in a magical world below his childhood home. An ancient spirit the diarist's "dark sister" is subsequently released in a deft and highly suspenseful tale in which the magical elements are used to chronicle the breakdown of a marriage. It's the story of fifteen-year-old Kaspian Aaby, the embittered son of a religious zealot, who strays away from a camp for troubled teens into a strange Otherworld full of sinister leprechauns and then reappears, inexplicably, four days later and sixty miles away.

The magical elements here are stranger, and not as well integrated, as in the previous novel, but the portrait of adolescent Kaspian and his battle with the whole exasperating adult world is truly first rate. This year, by comparison, it has been slim pickings. In addition, here are three reprints that should be on every fantasy lover's shelf, two by an early master of the field and one by a modern master: The King of Elfland's Daughter and The Charwoman's Shadow by Lord Dunsany Del Rey have been released in handsome trade paperback editions with new introductions by Neil Gaiman and Peter Beagle.

These Irish novels date from the s and yet remain utterly fresh, demonstrating why Dunsany has strongly influenced generations of fantasists ever since. Patricia A. I highly recommend this lyrical tale of riddles, harpists, wizards, and wolves if you've somehow missed it. If you're looking for adventure fantasy that won't insult your intelligence, I can recommend the following: Dragonshadow by Barbara Hambly Del Rey is the sequel to Dragonsbane , one of Hambly's early books, but can easily be read alone.

This talented author subverts the usual fantasy plot by giving us a heroine who is married, middle-aged, and still fighting to save the Winterlands from dragons and worse. Hambly's in top form here in a book combining skillful character studies with a rousing good plot. It's a well-crafted series about sentient ships, intrigue, and magic on the high seas, aptly dubbed "Patrick O'Brian for fantasy readers. It's the second book in Bishop's lush, unusual "Black Jewels" trilogy. Traitor's Moon by Lynn Flewelling Bantam is the third book in the "Nightrunner" series, a page-turner distinguished by Flewelling's careful world-building and well-drawn characters.

Aramaya by Jane Routley Avon follows her previous books, Mage Heart and Fire Angels, in an engaging series about the struggles of a young mage in a magical world. There's nothing startlingly new here, but Routley brings fresh life to her tale with vivid descriptions and a gift for well-structured plots. Company of Glass by Valery Leith Bantam is the first book of the "Everien" trilogy, set in an intriguing landscape where reality slips and shifts underfoot.

Though in many ways a standard swords-and-sorcery tale, the book is vigorous and well written. Lynn Ace , a groundbreaking novel that won the World Fantasy Award. Historical Fantasy and Alternate History was a good year for magical books based on real or alternate history, including the Beagle, Cooper, Erdrich, Roessner, and Whitehead novels in the Top Twenty list. In , a bomb exploded in a Cuban opera house while the great Enrico Caruso was performing in Aida ; fearing a plot by the Sicilian Mafia, Caruso fled into the streets of Havana and disappeared.

Montero takes these true historical facts and weaves them into a magical novel speculating on what may have occurred during the period of Caruso's disappearance, creating a darkly atmospheric tale of love and adventure involving opera, Chinese folklore, and the mystical, secretive Afro-Caribbean religion of Santeria. At pages, Montero's novel is a short one but packs a punch. Benjamin's Gift by Michael Golding Warner is a winsome novel about an obscenely wealthy man in early twentieth-century Manhattan, the orphan boy he adopts born with the ability to teleport , and the jazz-playing housekeeper they both love.

The tale follows its three protagonists from the s to the s, watching them change, and the world change around them, as Benjamin comes to terms with his strange gift. Ahab's Wife by Sena Jeter Naslund Morrow is a beautiful novel looking at the mores of early nineteenth-century America through the eyes of the wife of the seafaring hero of Melville's Moby-Dick. Naslund has created an extraordinary tale, adventurous, vigorous, and thought-provoking. Nevermore by Harold Schechter Pocket is an odd but engaging alternate history novel in which Davy Crockett and Edgar Allan Poe team up to fight crime, a fantasy spun on the slim fact that these two American heroes did indeed once meet.

A Calculus of Angels by J. Gregory Keyes Del Rey , the sequel to Newton's Cannon , is an entertaining alternate history tale about Sir Isaac Newton and his young apprentice Ben Franklin, set in a version of the eighteenth century after an asteroid has destroyed much of Europe where alchemy works. Saint Fire by Tanith Lee Overlook , book two in the "Secret Books of Venus" quartet, is set in a lush, darkly sensuous version of eighteenth-century Venice. Each book in the quartet is inspired by one of the four elements of alchemy.

Here, Lee conjures fire with a magical version of the Joan of Arc legend. Against the Tide of Years by S. Stirling Penguin is the sequel to Island in the Sea of Time , an inventive time-travel story about contemporary folk from Nantucket Island who are stranded in the Bronze Age past. Also of note: Del Rey has just reprinted one of the best alternate history novels of the past twenty years: The Drawing of the Dark by Tim Powers, about the Fisher King, an Irish mercenary, and the art of brewing beer in sixteenth-century Vienna.

Mythic Fiction This category includes novels inspired by myths, ancient epics, fairy tales, folklore, and folk ballads. Divakaruni's second novel contains no overt magic or fantasy unlike her first, The Mistress of Spices but it's saturated with the Indian fairy tales beloved by its two protagonists, who are cousins, "sisters of the heart," growing up in a strict traditional household in modern Bombay.

There's deep magic at the core of this book, and I can't recommend it too strongly. Other recommendations: Enchanted Night by Steven Millhauser Crown is a page novella published in a slim hardcover edition. Kafka's Curse by Achmat Dangor Pantheon is a poetic, passionate book about life in post-apartheid South Africa, mixing magic realism and fairy-tale imagery with the gripping story of an extended, mixed-race family as they deal with lives, and a country, in the process of transformation.

This heartrending novel begins in a small Mexican village during the Mexican Revolution, intertwining a multigeneration saga with the legend of Amacuepantle. Madame Fate by Marcia Douglas Soho Press tells the story of Jamaica from God's creation of the island to the present, as seen through the eyes of generations of women with a magical connection to the land and its spirits.
