More than a dozen stories voiced by 17 suitably whimsical narrators enliven this collection of King Arthur and Camelot retellings that change up the sexualities, races, and genders depicted in the original works. The style of narrations is wide ranging. Gentle and mysterious, Lena Lee weaves a spell with Sarah MacLean's sultry take on a woman's destiny in "The Bladesmith Queen," while Jeena Yi offers a young, bold, and quirky queer romance in Sive Doyle's "Do, by All Due Means." Excalibur becomes a baseball bat, a barista forms a hopeless crush on Lancelot, and Merlin's magic provides a moment of solace to a couple grappling with the devastation of AIDS/HIV. Diverse narrations create an imaginative, engaging assortment that allows listeners to experience well-known stories from new perspectives.
