"Plunged into a sea of alien faces, Teldin Moore isn't sure whom to trust. His gnomish sidewheeler is attacked by space pirates, and he is saved by a hideous mind flayer who offers to help the human use his magical cloak - but for whose gain? Teldin learns the basics of spell-jamming, and he seeks an ancient arcane, one who might tell him more." 3. The Maelstrom's Eye - 313 pp, 1992, ISBN 1560763442.

Vengeful humanoids rampage through the Known Spheres, and they're on Teldin's trail even as he hunts for the ultimate spacefaring ship of all: the mighty 'Spell-jammer'!" 4.

But someone in Teldin's inner circle is pulling all parties toward battle." 5. The Broken Sphere - 314 pp, 1993, ISBN 1560765968. "Teldin Moore's magic amulet allows him to 'see' through the eyes of the great ship 'Spelljammer', across the wilds of space. Following clues from an ancient gnomish library and the vision he sees, he traces the mighty craft through the crystal spheres. He employs his magical cloak's powers and discovers his quarry's home, but Teldin's cloak - and the possibility it could give him control over the 'Spelljammer' - continues to draw enemies, often in the guise of friends. Will he survive long enough to face the final danger that awaits him at the point of the 'Spelljammer's' origin - the Broken Sphere?"

172 pp, 7 1/2" H. Red boards with black lettering/illustration on spine and front board. Colour frontispiece, b&w illustrations. No date, but Xmas greetings on free front endpaper dated 1936. "The stories that follow are taken from Sir Thomas Malory's 'Morte D'Arthur', the great collection of romances about King Arthur which was written in the fifteenth century, and printed first of all by Caxton. Scholars say that Arthur was a British hero, one of the leaders of the Britons against the English invaders in the sixth century. In course of time legends centred round his name in the memory of the defeated race. To the original stories the Middle Ages added others, some of which belonged to later heroes, and, finally, these were combined with various legends of the Christian Church about the finding of the Holy Grail, the cup from which Christ is said to have drunk at the Last Supper with His disciples. Thus we get the beautiful cycle of romances which shines in the pages of Malory's great book. This version has been written for younger children. As far as possible the old-world style of Malory's narrative has been preserved, while the stories chosen are those which seem to present a message to youth." Contents: Introduction; The Sword in the Stone; King Arthur sees a Strange Knight; The Sword Excalibur; Balin, the Poor Knight; The Invisible Knight; The Battle of the Brothers; The Table Round; The Merciful Knight; The Death of Merlin; King Arthur and Accolon; The Lady of the Lake; The Marvellous Giant; The Two Giants; The Disguised Knight; The Shipwreck of Sir Lamorak; Launcelot and the Dragon; Sir Bors in the Castle Adventurous; Sir Gawaine's Rescue; The Knight with the Ugly Coat; Sir Tristram and King Mark; The Story of Sir Alisander; When Sir Launcelot was Mad; Seeking the Holy Grail; Sir Galahad's Shield; Sir Launcelot and the Holy Grail; Sir Percivale and the Lion; The Holy Grail is Seen; Fed by the Holy Grail; The Death of Sir Galahad; The Poisoned Apple; The Lady of Astolat; End of the Table Round; The Death of Arthur.

Yet deep in the mountains, in the shadow of Dragonclaw, a young girl is being tutored in the old ways. Ignorant of her past, uncertain of her future, the foundling Isabeau will soon be forced down a dangerous path of prophesy, conspiracy and magic.

The flame-haired twins - Iseult the Scarred Warrior and Isabeau the apprentice-witch - must go their separate ways. Iseult to fight side by side with her husband, Lachlan.
