CAMELOT FOREVER: PENDRAGON'S RETURN (Canceled)
A new story of Camelot as King Arthur is nearly defeated before he's sent to the future to save those he cares about the most!
Camelot fell not only to outside forces, but from betrayal within… King Arthur appears in modern day, sent through time by his old friend Merlin from the moment of his defeat in battle . Morgana LeFay has established a corporate empire whose true goal is to control all magic left in the world. Arthur discovers a network of modern-day knights, descendants from his original Round Table, allied against Morgana and waiting for the return of their king. A role Arthur is reluctant to take… Arthur remains pure of spirit and trusting, blind to the dangers of internal treachery and the modern world. Luckily, he has a detective on his side, the 13-year-old great-granddaughter of… Sherlock Holmes!
CAMELOT FOREVER: PENDRAGON’S RETURN is currently one of the most highly anticipated, fantasy/sci-fi novel offered on Kickstarter! Wanna know more? Read on...
1. Is this a book about medieval times?
Yes and No. Part of the story is based in medieval times but a large part is based in a modern or a slightly future time.
2. Has it got any magic in it?
Hmmmm…. Most definitely.
3. Who are Robert W. Hickey and Bill Nichols?
Robert and Bill have written and created graphic novels and comic books for years including Arteest, Paradox Wars, Blood and Roses, StormQuest and Clay’s Way.
They have charted the course of Sketch Magazine for many years offering writers and artists a source for tips and techniques and they have traveled to many conventions talking to fans about their projects.
Camelot Forever is a natural move for both seasoned writers for a new adventure in prose format.

5. That sounds cool...so what’s the deal with all this artwork?
CAMELOT FOREVER was originally conceived as a comic book but over time it became much more and a novel gives us the format to expand the story. We had some of the character design work and a couple pages penciled we’ll be sharing this with our supporters.
WHAT MAKES THIS BOOK SO SPECIAL, AND WHY SHOULD I CARE?
We’re having a blast writing and expanding the story and characters of CAMELOT FOREVER this being our first novel we’re excited to create a story and sharing the experience with readers and fans of our work.
WHAT IS ALL THE KICKSTARTER MONEY GOING TOWARD?
The goal is to create the most amazing book possible; with professional typesetting, professional editing, and a professional design. To make this happen we need your help to commission the artists and designers who will be creating the images and logos, and the geniuses who will be creating everything visual involved in the book. I also need a seasoned editor, who can fix the errors and help us stay faithful to the story that we’re wanting to tell. I will also be printing the book in both perfect-bound paperback and deluxe hardcover versions, AND I’ll be creating some other cool items to give as rewards – like bookmarks, lap pins and t-shirts.
Once we hit my goal for funding, We’ll start adding all kinds of bonus stuff to this book and make it even more fun - and I'll throw in some additional bonus stuff for everyone who has already backed the project.
LET’S DO THIS!
Backing this project will not only make you a great person but you’ll also be getting on the ground floor of our first ever published work in a novel format.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read all of this craziness, and if you're on the fence about backing this project, please check out the sample chapter and see if CAMELOT FOREVER is for you.

Risks and challenges
We have never been so excited about a project, and I’m extremely confident about this one.
We have been through the process of digital book design, self-publishing, and creating custom merchandise many times, so we’re well aware of the difficulties that lie ahead.
We’re confident that we can keep everything on schedule, but should the project require additional time (due to a natural disaster, a fire at the printing press) I’ll let everyone who pledged know as soon as possible, and I won’t sleep until this thing is ready to ship.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
