Overview

In this latest of Gordon R. Dickson's immensely popular adventures of Jim Eckert; the 20th-century mathematician who has come to live in a medieval age where magic works and Jim himself can become a dragon at will, Gordon R. Dickson draws on the richness of the greatest medieval legend of all, the tale of Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table.In the legends, after their final battle, Arthur and his knights went to Lyonesse, the land under the sea. Now Lyonesse is threatened by a resurgence of the Dark Powers, those mindlessly malevolent forces that struggle to stop the course of History. And Jim Eckert and his friends are called upon to stop them.Arthur and his court live on in Lyonesse because, even though centuries have elapsed, there are still those who believe in them. But Arthur and his knights are proud, too proud to easily accept help from Jim Eckert and his allies. But they will have help, from Jim in his dragon form, from knight-in-armor Sir Brian Neville-Smyth, from the brilliant archer Dafydd ap Hywel, and from one small hobgoblin. The result is a wild ride, an Arthurian fantasy adventure as only Gordon R. Dickson could tell it.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
A new adventure for Jim Eckert, once a college math professor, and now Baron James of Malencontri in an alternate14th- century England where magic works and Jim has a not-so-secret identity as a powerful but rather dim-witted dragon. There'll be double trouble for Jim this time out, although both problems will eventually merge: the Earl of Cumberland intends to march against Jim with a huge army; and in Lyonesse, a land now lying under the sea where three powers-þOld Magic, trees, and beastsþ-reign supreme, King Arthur and his knights (and foes like Morgan le Fay and Modred) are threatened by Dark Powers. So Jim, with his acquired knowledge of magic and his shape-shifting ability, his loyal sidekick Sir Brian Neville-Smythe, Hob the hobgoblin, and a magical questing beast, once again must somehow prevail against the forces of darkness. Another satisfying entry in this well-established, colorful, and entertaining series
