Arthurian Subgenre


Arthurian tales have been around since the Roman Empire began to fall. They are found in both Fantasy and Science Fiction genres. The hero is destined to lead his or her people out of the darkness and into peace and prosperity. The plots twist with loyalty betrayed, hearts broken, honorable deaths and deeds of the most chivalrous nature. Brotherhood of the elite is tantamount to such tales.

Arthurian novels always have an underlying sense of divine faith in doing the right thing no matter the cost. This faith can be religious, political, social, or technological.
These books, if well-written, should leave the reader with the sense that the story does not end with the last page; Arthur will return when the world needs her or him again.
