Currently reading: Bradamant's Quest, by Ruth Berman. Bradamant, the woman knight from Orlando Furioso, grieving her husband, is given a quest by Oberon, king of the fairies: gather some magical talismans that have been scattered across the land by various members of her family and return them to Oberon.

I'm about 30% in right now, and it's quite engaging. It's episodic, and at least two of the chapters were published as standalone short stories. I haven't read Orlando Furioso, so everything I'm encountering is new and I haven't the slightest idea what is Berman's creation and what comes from the original, if anything. Looking forward to finishing it!
