Sleepless Knights by Mark H. Williams

What kept King Arthur up at night?

I bet people have been wondering about this all these centuries. After all, defining a nation, revolutionizing social culture, conquering the world, defending against cuckoldry, protecting your kingdom against your evil witch sister, and defeating usurpers on the field of battle can take a lot out of a guy. 398 more words

Brenton Dickieson reblogged this on A Pilgrim in Narnia and commented:

Have you considered spending some time expanding your reading this winter? Have you wanted to dig further into classic SF and authors like C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien? This could be an engaging and inexpensive opportunity. I don't know of another experiment like the Mythgard Institute at Signum University. The entire community of teachers, writers, techs, managers, and students are committed to providing a platform where curious students of all ages and backgrounds can explore the kinds of books that are rooted in big ideas. These books--these authors, really--are the shapers of worlds, the "speculative cosmographers" that effect us today: Middle Earth, Narnia, Westeros, Avalon and wonderlands and Martian landscapes of all kinds. I have the privilege of working with Sørina Higgins (of the Oddest Inkling blog) and Doug Anderson, a leading Tolkien scholar. Check out this list of readings and consider jumping in this semester!
