I confess that I tried to read the original Mabinogion a few years ago and found it boring and unmagical. However, I have heard Hugh Lupton on stage, and he is a master storyteller. The Assembly of the Severed Head is a skillful retelling of the four branches of the Welsh epic cycle, set in the early thirteenth century. The author has a real feel for the period, telling his tale simply but effectively, and the characters in both the narrative (some real, others fictional) and the Mabinogion itself came to life. Enthusiastically recommended, and I look forward to reading more books by Hugh Lupton. ( )
