The Acts Of King Arthur And His Noble Knights

by John Steinbeck

Steinbeck's only work of fantasy literature?in a  deluxe edition with a foreword by Christopher Paolini, New York Times bestselling author of Eragon, Eldest and Brisingr
 
Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur was the first book that John Steinbeck truly enjoyed reading as a child. Fascinated by Arthurian tales of adventure, knighthood, honor and friendship, in addition to the challenging nuances of the original Anglo-Saxon language, Steinbeck set out to render these stories faithfully and with keen animation for a modern audience. Here then is Steinbeck’s modernization of the adventure of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, featuring the icons of Arthurian legend?including King Arthur, Merlin, Morgan le Fay, the incomparable Queen Guinevere, and Arthur's purest knight, Sir Lancelot of the Lake.
 
These enduring tales of loyalty and betrayal in the time of Camelot flicker with the wonder and magic of an era past but not forgotten. Steinbeck's retelling will capture the attention and imagination of legions of Steinbeck fans, including those who love Arthurian romances, as well as countless readers of science fiction and fantasy literature.
 
This edition features a new foreword by Christopher Paolini, author of the number-one New York Times bestselling novels Eragon, Eldest, and Brisingr. It also includes the letters John Steinbeck wrote to his literary agent, Elizabeth Otis, and to Chase Horton, the original editor of this volume.

In the good old days, magic was indispensable. But now magic is fading: Drain cleaner is cheaper than a spell, and magic carpets are used for pizza delivery. Fifteen-year-old Jennifer Strange runs Kazam, an employment agency for magicians—but it’s hard to stay in business when magic is drying up. And then the visions start, predicting the death of the world’s last dragon at the hands of an unnamed Dragonslayer. If the visions are true, everything will change for Kazam—and for Jennifer.

The Atomic Sea Volume One

by Jack Conner

A thousand years ago, the sea changed. And the change spread. No one knows why . . . till now.

Dr. Francis Avery drowns his memories in whiskey. Years after the Empire of Octung killed his family, his only drives are alcohol and striking back against Octung. While aboard a military whaling ship far out on the eerie Atomic Sea, a series of murders forces him to track down the killer.

Along the way, a mysterious woman named Layanna is pulled from the toxic, lightning-wreathed depths of the water. Though it’s impossible, she’s alive, and she has a secret: she’s the only one who can stop Octung. But she’ll need Avery’s help to accomplish her mission. If they fail, the entire world will fall under Octung’s bloodthirsty, murderous shadow. What follows is an epic quest like you've never seen before.

The Atomic Sea: Volume One is the first installment in a series of epic fantasy / science fiction adventure novels by New York Times bestselling author Jack Conner. If you like action-packed storytelling, rich atmosphere and unique twists and turns you won’t see coming, then you’ll love Jack Conner’s incredible mix of epic fantasy, horror and science fiction adventure.

I want to add a book called Starscape by Benita J. Prins, but when I put in "Starscape" and hit "Click to add item", it comes up with a different book, also called Starscape, by Ian Douglas. How can I make it do the right book?
