2 thoughts on “… the Merlin book looks superb … (Rosemary Sutcliff Diary, 28/6/88)”
I’m wondering if that might be Peter Dickinson’s ‘Merlin Dreams’ (1988), with illustrations by Alan Lee who was to illustrate ‘Black ships before Troy’ and ‘The Wanderings of Odysseus.’ In which case it does indeed look superb.
V Interesting and plausible. I cannot find it however on my shelves of her books …which does not mean anything one way or the other!
