Fifteen years ago, the paperback publication of Knight Life heralded the debut of a major new talent on the science fiction and fantasy scene. Now, armed with more wit and wisdom than ever before, Peter David has reworked the novel dear to his heart-the story of New York City's most surprising candidate for mayor: Arthur Pendragon, Once and Future King.

"[David] knows how to spin a story." (Publishers Weekly)

"A darkly amusing fantasist." (Kirkus Reviews)

Baker & Taylor
Arthur Pendragon arrives in modern-day New York City with his friend Merlin the Magician and decides to run for mayor but Morgan Le Fey and Modred try to keep Arthur from reaching his goal, in an updated and expanded edition of the popular rendition of the Arthurian legend.

New York, New York: A new candidate for mayor has thrown his sword into the ring. Arthur - as in King Arthur - has reappeared after 1500 years to try and take over the helm of the new millennium's Camelot: New York City. A born leader, with good looks and charisma, Arthur is sure to give the current batch of candidates some tough competition for the spotlight - especially with the help of his close advisor, Merlin.
Yet, the Arthurian camp is no stranger to scandal. Unless Arthur can keep his sorceress of a half-sister, Morgan Le Fey, and his less-than-legitimate heir, her son Mordred, under control - and out of the gossip columns - he risks alienating a huge chunk of his constituency.
With more questions than answers surrounding his candidacy, expect Arthur to take to the streets of the five boroughs in a grassroots campaign for votes. It wouldn't be the first time that New Yorkers have thrown their support behind an outsider. And if Arthur can make it there, he can make it anywhere.
