C.B. Blakey’s story “Bedwyr by the Sea” was published in Metaphorosis on Friday, 24 January 2020.
“Bedwyr by the Sea” was partially inspired by a documentary (I forget which one) that speculated that the lost city of Avalon was a coastal city that has since been swallowed by the sea. The Arthurian legends have changed so much over the centuries that in many ways they are a fine example of stories that have evolved and thus remain relevant to modern audiences. I wanted to bring those two things together. Also, who can honestly say they don’t appreciate a good sand-castle.
