A Kentucky Colonel in King Arthurs Court and the Swamp Maiden of Venus
A botched alchemical experiment tosses Hal Morgan—the scion of a wealthy Louisville family and perhaps a relative of Twain’s Hank Morgan--into a whacky dimension, where the characters of Arthurian legend indeed exist! Hal soon finds himself involved upon a dangerous quest to save Arthur’s court from the plotting of a mysterious black knight. Joined by a sprightly female warrior and a whimsical thief, Hal must confront a mangy werewolf, talking salmon, an exceedingly amorous Morgan Le Fay, belligerent giants, man-eating witches, a libidinous troll princess, walking eyes, a kelpie, and a dangerous magical forest before he can unmask and defeat Arthur’s adversary. At times humorous, at times satirical, A Kentucky Colonel in King Arthur’s Court is a fast-paced adventure in the style of that grand old fantasy magazine Unknown Worlds. Also included is The Swamp Maiden of Venus, a bittersweet tale of youthful romance and a boy’s addiction to fantasy.
