I have only read The Lady Of Shalott by Alfred Tennyson but technically that is a very long poem, not a fiction novel.

Joy Stephenson (joyfrankie) | 243 comments I've read The Once and Future King several times over the years - love the way it starts light-heartedly, with comic scenes, and gradually becomes more serious. I might read it again now I've been reminded of it!

Cheryl Hall | 138 comments I though I wouldn't call it a re-telling. This book attempted to be Arthurian.

Working Wonders

It doesn't look like it and it isn't very good. Got it free in a magazine about 10 years ago.
