It is rare for me to give 5 stars to any story, but this one deserves it. The writing is well done, the characters are believable, interest is maintained throughout, and the ending is well handled.

An okay time travel story. A thief goes back in time to steal the Holy Grail, based on his understanding of the Arthurian legend. He fails a few times and keeps hopping back in time to try again, almost meeting himself once or twice.

The characters are filled out enough, and the plot is nicely complicated, but the ending is telegraphed very early in the story.
