The Great Captains

  "This is the story of 'King' Arthur, as I think it might have happened," Henry Treece wrote about his novel. The Great Captains is about no romantic ghost but a man of the wild, forbidding world of ancient Britain.

The fourth book in the Celtic Tetralogy, with an introduction by Michael Moorcock, stencil illustrations by James Cawthorn, and cover art by Michael Heslop.

In The Revenant Zone: Henry Treece's Notes on Perception and Vision.

Reviews

    "The very best of all the tales of Arthur.

    MICHAEL MOORCOCK

    "Treece now seems more powerful and relevant than when these books were written, portraying poetry, violence and the dark undertow of mysticism."

    ANDREW DARLINGTON, Ludd's Mill

    "...mystery, magic, tragedy, emotion and drama, powerfully and colourfully written..."
