Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court , by M Twain (early time-travel novel 2 tapes)

£3.99

Product description

( full title is " A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court ", by Mark Twain , read by Kerry Shale )

An early example of a novelist using his imagination to project time-travel, Mark Twain's "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" was published six years prior to H G Wells' "The Time Machine".

The story is of an American engineer, from Connecticut, being whisked back to the time of King Arthur, where he uses his knowledge of technology to earn a living as a magician, astounding the folk of the era with such feats, as fireworks, demolitions, and the shoring-up of a holy well.

However, the Catholic Church becomes fearful of the engineer's powers, and issues an interdict against the man, while he is, at the same time, unable to prevent the death of King Arthur ...

Side One : 1) Time Slip 2) The Boss.
Side Two : 1) Civilizing Camelot 2) A Quest.

Side Three : 1) The Joust 2) Borrowed Time.
Side Four : 1) The Boss Returns 2) War of the Worlds.
