Reviews

"As if Jane Austen were rewriting Terry Pratchett: snorts and chortles plus elegant eyebrow-raising... Bold literary and historical misadventures, told with a twist and a lightness of touch." -- Ian Sansom * Guardian *
"The reader can enjoy the same level of affectionate detail that the Pythons brought to Monty Python and the Holy Grail... Phillips clearly delights in the world of [King Arthur] and...subverts fantasy motif in refreshing and absurd ways... Very good fun." -- Leonora Craig Cohen * Literary Review *
"The Table of Less Valued Knights infects Arthurian legend with a brio not seen since Monty Python and the Holy Grail" * New Statesman *
