Short Story Review: "The Peddler's Tale, or Isobel's Revenge" by Caitlin R. Kiernan

2 of 5 stars.

Drawing from Lovecraft’s mythos which includes realms disinterested from that of humans and Earth, this tale centers on an Underrealm of ghouls of half-ghouls. 234 more words

Vivien: The Lady of the Lake


“For Merlin, overtalked and overworn,

Had yielded, told her all the charm, and slept”

(Alfred Lord Tennyson)

Most Arthurian legends feature Merlin’s love-interest, Vivien.  She usually appears as The Lady of the Lake and ruler of Avalon, but sometimes she is described by other names such as Nimue – Niviane – the daughter of a vavasor named Dionas – a princess of Northumberland – or the Queen of Sicily.   405 more words
