Mister Ron's Basement #718
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, the Professor and Tilly demonstrate the Phonograph to the amazement of the people in the castle, and True Love is aided with a Telephone...
Time: approx thirteen minutes
