Mister Ron's Basement #725

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 get to see what happens when you mix knight's armor and electromagnets, then the Professor nearly gets his head chopped off!

Time: approx fifteen minutes
