Cindy Mediavilla annotates over 200 Arthurian novels, specifically focusing upon literature appropriate for young adults. Included in this bibliography are the love stories of Guinevere and Lancelot and Tristan and Isolde; historical fiction about the 'real' Arthur, who led countless battles against the invading Saxons; introspective novels about the extraordinary women of Camelot; fantasy fiction featuring Merlin, maker of kings and world renowned magician; coming-of-age stories about some of the more unlikely heroes of Camelot, including Gawain and Mordred; adventure stories about the quest for the Holy Grail; novels about the return of Arthur; and novels set in contemporary times which celebrate the continuing legacy of Camelot. Each entry is assigned an appropriate reading level and contains a detailed description of the book's plot. An index of titles, authors, characters, and specific themes is appended. The intended audience is young adult readers, grades six through high school, and the youth services professionals who serve them.
Cindy Mediavilla is a doctoral candidate in Library and Information Science at the University of California, Los Angeles.
