The Prisoner of Shalott

I was invited to write a story for an Arthurian anthology, and happened to be listening to Loreena McKennitt's "The Lady of Shalott," putting Alfred, Lord Tennyson's poem of the same title to music, at the time.

That made it very easy to decide what story to write. I did a good bit of research on Elaine the White (i.e., the Lady of Shalott), picked and chose the pieces I liked from all the various versions of her story (including Tennyson's -- he made some of his up out of whole cloth), and put it all together.

I added some of my own ideas, too, of course, just like everyone else who has retold the story over the centuries.

The result was "The Prisoner of Shalott," which was accepted to the anthology, and here we are.
