More than 1,500 years after his disappearance into the mists of Avalon, King Arthur has returned. This time, he's prepared to rule the Camelot of a new millennium: New York City. Handsome, charismatic Arthur Penn is running for mayor on a platform of common sense, humor, and knightly virtues. His advisors include a gifted ten-year-old named Merlin; Percival, an immortal accountant; and Gwen, a lovely young woman with end of problems. Their grassroots campaign steadily gains strength until scandal looms with the sudden emergence of Morgan Le Fay, Arthur's sorceress half-sister, and her son Mordred, the aspiring mayor's ambitious heir. Acclaimed by Kirkus Reviews as steady fun by a darkly amusing fantasist, this imaginative romp is the revised and expanded version of Peter David's first vel, Sir Apropos of Nothing, originally published in 1987 and w out of print. David is the author of more than fifty vels, many of which have appeared on The New York Times bestsellers list. His sparkling update of Arthurian myth abounds in wit, irony, and astute reflections on human nature.
