Scott Telek is exactly the kind of guy you would imagine spending over a decade reading and studying the different versions of the Arthurian legend, then devoting the rest of his life to writing the longest and most detailed telling of the Medieval King Arthur legend in existence.

His series The Swithen is committed to staying faithful to the actual Arthurian legend as laid down between the years 1136 and 1485. Too many King Arthur stories stray so far from the original Medieval sources, they lose the magic and mystery that made this saga so enduring in the first place. Telek's rule, and the challenge he has set for himself as a writer, is that he cannot change anything from the ancient story, he can only add or enhance scenes and characters, but anything he does add has to slot seamlessly into the existing story. In this way, when you read The Swithen, you can know that you are discovering the actual Arthurian legend and not some made-up story.

Telek has been a professional writer for over 30 years. His degrees are in English Literature and Psychology, both of which he brings to bear on turning blank archetypes such as Merlin, Arthur and Morgan le Fay into fully fleshed out charcacters with relatable flaws and emotions. He has also maintained a film review website (some of which you can find in books here), created films of his own and studied oil painting. He was born in Michigan, lived in New York City, Chicago, and is now a permanent resident of Ontario, Canada.

Telek's love of nature and ongoing interest in legend and folklore led into his obsession with the Arthurian legend. Discovering that most of us actually don't know many of the stories it contains, and that any telling would need to be longer, not shorter, in order to fully deliver the epic scope and majesty the saga deserves, he plotted out 25 novels... No making it up as we go! Five of them are out now, taking us from the birth of Merlin to Arthur's coronation as king. The Swithen offers readers an ongoing fantasy saga they can grow with over the next 20 or so years. And it just happens to be one of the greatest stories ever told.
