By Force Alone by Lavie Tidhar

(0 reviews)
14.99 USD
A retelling of Arthurian myth for the age of Brexit and Trump, from World Fantasy Award-winner Lavie Tidhar.



Everyone thinks they know the story of King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table.

But the story they know is lies.

Where calculating warlords have become romantic heroes.

Where predatory sorcerers have become paternal sages.

Where talented murderers have become knights of honor.

But real power comes from betrayal and murder, and followers begging to be deceived. Destiny is the accumulation of lies we let guide our lives.

And a sword is just a sword, until it runs you through.

Praise for this book

Praise for Lavie Tidhar:

“Lavie Tidhar[‘s] mad imagination ... is hilarious, insightful and terrifying all at once.” —Ben Aaronovitch



“He is a political writer, an iconoclast and sometimes a provocateur ... remarkable and ambitious work.” —China Mieville



“Would probably have been enough to get Tidhar burnt at the stake during the Middle Ages... Violent, action-packed, paced like a runaway freight train, politically incorrect and socially unredeemable [and] hugely entertaining.” —Gardner Dozois



·“A game-player of a writer who uses the spectrum of science fiction canon for his pieces... Lavie Tidhar is a clever bastard.” —Warren Ellis



“Lavie Tidhar is one of the most distinctive voices to enter the field in many years.” —Alastair Reynolds



“[Tidhar is] Young, ambitious, skilled and original.” —Christopher Priest



“Hypnotic … [his] writing is beautiful.” —Jeff Vandermeer



“There are SFF writers. There are good SFF writers. And there is Lavie Tidhar...There is no one like him writing in genre today.” – Ian McDonald



“Groundbreaking… radically unique… genius literary invention.” — Norman Spinrad



“A dazzling tale of complicated politics and even more complicated souls. Beautiful.” —Ken Liu



"[Tidhar] has already staked a claim as the genre’s most interesting, most bold, and most accomplished writer.” —Locus



“Tidhar scatters brilliant ideas like pennies on the sidewalk.” —NPR Books



"Stunning...very funny...remarkably poignant...[Tidhar] reminds us that even — especially — under the most terrible of circumstances, stories are all we have. And in the right hands, they can be a formidable weapon." —The Washington Post



"A brilliantly etched phantasmagoric reconfiguring of that most sizzling of eras the twilight 20th . . . a torrid tour de force.” —James Ellroy
