When I was eight or nine, I devoured The Adventures of Robin Hood by Roger Lancelyn Green in a single day. I’ve been hooked on medieval literature and retellings ever since. Robin Hood, the Arthurian cycle, The Canterbury Tales, the mystics—I love it all. That’s made putting together this issue of Splickety so much fun. I’m thrilled to bring you a collection of flash fiction featuring jousts and quests, a repentant crusader and a hubristic rooster, and the Ladies of the Lake like you’ve never seen them before.
