The two novels are such a thoughtful and skillful rethinking of that portion of the Camelot story that they were nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. The ruling king is stranded temporarily in contemporary New York City, while Castle Perilous is infested by a horde of blue demons.

Kersh amuses himself by naming two of the witnesses Herbert George and Rebecca West, an obvious reference to H. There’s the last baseball games my grandfather would see before he passed away, and there’s the news around the time of his passing that my mother got diagnosed with cancer, and there’s the weeks I spent this past semester in something like depression, and there’s the first draft I wrote after weeks of not writing — wherein a jean jacket I bought reminded me of Roger, a poet/teacher/friend, who passed away a few years ago & the memory that Roger introduced me to craft beer in the first place.

What if I want to write creative nonfiction in poetry form? MacDonald’s short fantasies are in much the same vein as his novels. “The Golden Key” (1867) is another story of travel through dreams, and “The Giant’s Heart” (1863) is a fairy tale with a particularly nasty giant. “The History of Photogen and Nycteris” and “The Light Princess” are among his best.
