The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is a big read. The story of the time of King Arthur, as told from the point of view of the women of the time. It’s a familiar tale, but told with more depth and dimension than I’d experienced in any earlier telling.
There are cycles in the book in which I want to strangle pretty much every single character, but they are far and few between. If you’re interested in Arthurian legends, druids, pagans, post-Roman Christianity, and/or long form fiction, I recommend this book.

This is a text conversation with a friend of mine:
Me: On plane, 30 minute delay
Paul: Flap harder then
Me: FLAPPING MY F***ING HEART OUT IS IT WORKING
Me: GUY IN SEAT NEXT TO ME IS GETTING PISSED
Me: I MIGHT HAVE BROKEN HIS NOSE MAKE SACRIFICES F***ER IM TRYING TO GET US IN THE AIR
Later, on IRC:
Paul: HOW ARE YOUR ARMS DUDE
Me: SO F***ING TIRED AND COVERED IN THAT GUY’S BLOOD
Me: HE WAS SO PISSY ABOUT IT OMG
Paul: WHAT A JERK
Paul: NOT A TEAM PLAYER
Good day, gentlepeople of all persuasions! I bring to you a novella filled to bursting with craziness, including in no particular order: a magical evil gun, a witch, alcohol, vampires, involuntary dimension hopping, alcohol, a missing elevator, using a bus as a getaway car, notable eye pigment shifts, alcohol, a pool hall, and Adam.
Did I mention booze? There’s some of that in there.
What No Eye Has Seen is available now at most of the major ebook retailers. So go ahead and make with the clicky-clicky, and give your eyeballs and your brainmeats a treat!
Remember that Dave Reynolds guy? The one who did the artwork for Two Vampires? Yeah, he did it again…
