Dreamwalkers Part Two: A Young Adult Fantasy Paranormal Romance

Most SF and fantasy has a setting other than the here and now, so we're used to communicating unusual environments to our readers. Using historical settings involves two further considerations. How familiar is the reader with the historical era? If you're writing for an American audience, then it's reasonable to assume that your readers have a basic grasp of the D-Day invasion of Normandy, the 1930s Dust Bowl, and the Constitutional Convention of 1787 Lady Carliss and the Waters of Moorue (The Knights of Arrethtrae). Mankiewicz directed the all-star costly, opulent, four-hour version of 20th Century Fox's flop Cleopatra (1963) starring Elizabeth Taylor as the provocatively-costumed Egyptian Queen, Richard Burton (in his best epic appearance) as Marc Antony, and Rex Harrison as Julius Caesar. Taking five years to prepare and 10 months to shoot on a budget that grew to $44 million, the film nearly bankrupted Fox Studios King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table-Lb (Great Illustrated Classics (Abdo)). There are some more mature themes in this book so a parental preview may be necessary (no one I've given this book to hasn't wanted their kids to read it, but all were glad they had read it themselves!).

Pliny the Elder called that instrument "one of the wonders of the world." Peter concludes that Tom's death may have been a blessing, not a tragedy. In dying, he "had escaped all that" (261). Housman's poetry will recall the most famous lyric of, "To an Athlete Dying Young."

How can I discuss King Arthur without even mentioning his enchanting castle in his city Camelot, or was it really a castle? Many historians and archeologists alike, believe that the most probable location of the city of Camelot is South Cadbury in the United Kingdom. However, it most likely was not the enchanted city legend claims it to have once been. It was almost certainly an equipped town made of wood rather than a stone castle or fort Pagan's Vows: Book Three of the Pagan Chronicles.
