In memory of a girl who loved all
things Celtic and magical; I hope that
she would have enjoyed this book.
That day Pwyll, Prince of Dyved, who thought he was going out to hunt, was in reality going out to be hunted, and by no beast or man of earth.

DEATH'S
CHAMPION


When Prince Pwyll recognized the Grey Horseman who accosted him in the strange wood as King Arawn, whose other name was Death, he resigned himself to follow him to the drear kingdom of Annwn, where there souls of the departed dwelled.  But Arawn had not sought Pwyll to end his life, rather to set him a task - to fight the one enemy death himself could not  oversome... and, for the combat, Pwyll would have to assume Arawn's own form.  Pwyll, valiant and steadfast, prepared to meet his foe - but was unready for the greatest test he faced... the temptation of the love offered him by the lady whose humband's guise he wore!

"THESE BOOKS ARE NOT ONLY THE BEST FANTASIES OF THE 20TH CENTURY, BUT ALSO GREAT WORKS OF FICTION."

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
