The Harp and the Blade T6355 (PV by three editors)
Borderline spec-fic. Historical romance set in 10th-century France, the Loire valley, with one mysterious episode in chapter two:
  At a dolmen in the forest, the Irish minstrel Finnian observes a moonrise ceremony of Pictish people led by an old priest who claims to remember the coming of the Gaelic-speaking people, the Latin-speaking, the Franks. Afterward,
  "Whether it is done by magic or not, there are some men who can reach into another's mind and pull his thoughts out whole. That man was a priest of an ancient, strance race, probably versed in wizardry, too, and he read me out. 'You let a man die today because you couldn't be bothered.' [True. ... Finnian expects a curse but] he only looked at me hard and said: 'From now on, as long as you stay in my land', here he swept an arm to include all directions, 'you will aid any man or woman in need of help.' [Ace Fantasy edition, p17-18]
  Ace calls it "a fantasy of druidic England" on the front cover and uses the term "wizard" three times on the back in its rendition of the above episode. Neither fits.

The Harp and the Blade (Ace Fantasy, 1985) ISFDB

"An Ace Fantasy Book" [? should be as Ace Fantasy rather than Ace Books]
(c) 1982 John Myers Myers

novel spans 1-230 ; front "Ace Fantasy Books by [JMM]" lists all three 41-10681-345 Dutton; 82-5014-223 Donning reprint "The harp and the blade / John Myers Myers ; edited by Hank Stine ; illustrated by C. Vess"

"lusty tale of Finnian, a singing fighting Irish minstrel" -- also a mismatch


An Older Kind of Magic T768977 (PV by Clarkmci, 2)

novel ends p149

Epilogue "The Edge of Vision" p150-[152]
The title evidently refers to the actual or proper realm or origin of magic.
Wrightson observes that transplants have tried to find or place unicorns and other European magic in Australia where it doesn't fit. Fortunately "a few students have recorded some of the magic that is true to Australia", namely aboriginal folklore.
She anticipates and discusses two criticisms of her adaptation, "for assembling in Sydney spirits originating from so many sources so far away" and "for the manner in which I have interpreted these charming spirits, often from a few spare and undescriptive words of the Aboriginal account". The opening Author's Note is faux non-fiction

1st ed. TW and HK (both separately): About the Author differs from the 1999 Revised ed. apparently without research value given the latter

Maps 4 and 5 are strictly inconsistent by illustrated features specific to the book in hand

not done
