NEW YORK (AP) — The author of the best-selling "Magicians" fantasy trilogy will next take on the aftermath of King Arthur and Camelot.

Lev Grossman's "The Bright Sword" will begin with the fall of Camelot and will tell of the knights following in the wake of King Arthur, Sir Lancelot and others of the Round Table, Viking told The Associated Press on Wednesday. No release date has been set.

Grossman, whose books include "The Magicians," ''The Magician King" and "The Magician's Land," said in a statement that King Arthur's time was a "strangely powerful lens" for looking at the present "and the way we live now." Grossman's "Magicians" books have been adapted into a TV series airing on Syfy.
