Fletcher Pratt’s The Well of the Unicorn (1948) is a well written and unduly neglected novel of revolution in a late mediaeval fantasy setting. Pratt charts personal and sexual intrigue alongside guerrilla actions, political discussions, and reflects upon the consequences of using magic to achieve revolutionary aims.
