Bercilak: The Green Knight (2016)


* The classic tale that inspired the A24-movie The Green Knight starring Dev Patel! *

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight stands as one of the earliest literary memories of Medieval England, King Arthur and his Round Table, the mythical Camelot, and those knights who called it home.

In this classic tale of chivalry and adventure, a mysterious figure interrupts a New Year’s Eve celebration. Dressed all in green, he challenges King Arthur to a dangerous duel, but it is Gawain, the least of them, who is brave enough to accept the challenge on Arthur’s behalf. What follows is the young knight’s journey into the heart of darkness as he tries to survive the impossible.

Intended for students, academics, and fans of the Knights of the Round Table mythos, no treatment or contemporary retelling of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is as complete and thrilling as this Dark Moon Books edition by USA Today bestselling-author Weston Ochse!

  • The original 1348 tale of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight in Middle English verse
  • Jessie L. Weston’s 1898 poetic translation of the original Middle English version
  • Acclaimed author Weston Ochse’s 2021 modernized narrative of the story
  • Supporting preface by the author

Author, Weston Ochse


Weston Ochse’s love for Sir Gawain and the Green Knight began when he was ten years old. Not only did it inspire him to join the military in order to become a knight of the red, white, and blue, but also to seek higher education so he could more readily understand the great works that came before him. He holds a Master of Fine Arts from National University and has been published all over the world. The American Library Association calls Weston “one of the major horror authors of the 21st Century.” His work has won the Bram Stoker Award, been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, won four New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards, and been a USA Today Bestseller. His military supernatural series SEAL Team 666 has been optioned to be a movie starring Dwayne Johnson. His shorter work has appeared in DC Comics, IDW Comics, Soldier of Fortune Magazine, and Weird Tales. His franchise work includes the X-Files, Predator, Aliens, Hellboy, Clive Barker’s Midian, and V-Wars. Weston is also a veteran of the US military, serving thirty-five years in the Army, special operations, and various agencies.
