    This was a fun episode. I happen to be revisiting _Once and Future King_ right now. I came into it a while ago in the exact same way you guys did: Oh, I love Sword and Stone. This should be great! But it’s so long. Upon revisit, I approached it differently. I decided to read it in bursts, a chapter at a time. This was much better, and it makes sense given the comments that you made that it’s a series of short stories. One thing the _Once and Future King_ has going for it is the beautiful language and attention to detail. I suspect that White was a bit of a naturalist. I can imagine him sitting in some quaint English countryside penning the tales.

    I think I’ll give Saga, Autumnlands, and Locke and Key a try based on your recommendations. Thanks!
