A lot of really good stories in here, some which haven't been in print in decades, some seeing first printing. I enjoyed many of them but this book lives up to it's name of "mammoth" - after a while, I felt like I'd been too immersed in Arthur. And some stories barely even touched on him or his knights (looking at you in particular, Tristan and Isuelt). My favorite of the stories was "The Dog's Story", wherein Merlin winds up turning a ruffian into a dog who becomes a relatively decent person afterward, and the story of the knight who was turned into a wolf by his conniving wife (shapechanger stories are always the best).
