Mister Ron's Basement #704
Continuing our Monday Book Serialization with Max Adeler's 1880 novelette, 'Fortunate Island,' concerning an American professor and his daughter, carrying advanced 19th century technology, stranded on a mysterious island filled with castles, knights, and descendants of King Arthur's Kingdom. If this sounds to you a bit like Mark Twain's 'A Connecticut Yakee in King Arthur's Court,' well, it also seemed so to Max Adeler...
Today, we present the third part of the first chapter, where the Professor and his daughter deal with a Baron, his hapless daughter, and three brave, if somewhat ignorant knights, all in the Hermit's cave.
Time: approx fourteen minutes
