Mister Ron's Basement #739
Concluding 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 offer the complete final part, Chapter Four, 'How the Professor Went Home' wherein there is a pursuit, a gunshot, the voice of an oracle, a swordfight, and a thrilling rescue!
Time: approx eighteen and a half minutes
