The Book of Mordred now available

I just noticed that The Book of Mordred, by Vivian Vande Velde, is now available on, although the publication date is listed as September 12. I haven't read this book yet, but it looks like an interesting recasting of the Arthurian legends with a different perspective on Mordred, who is traditionally the villian.

It's fascinating to me how so many different writers, such as Mary Stewart, Marion Zimmer Bradley, T.A. Barron, Jane Yolen and many more, can develop such different and interesting perspectives on the legends of King Arthur and all the characters surrounding him. I hope that The Book of Mordred will be a worthy addition to the genre.
