Fantasy parody of the Arthurian myths/books in which King Arthur appears in modern-day New York in the guise of one Arthur Penn, and decides to run for mayor of the city. With his refreshing and bold new ideas, he quickly gains notoriety with the help of Merlin, now in the form of an eight-year-old boy, Gwen DeVere, his secretary, and Percy Vale, his accountant as well as a host of other familiar characters. I thought the humor was a bit forced at times, but it was quite funny in other places. Full of puns and wordplay, but not as skillfully written as the author's later fantasy parodies featuring Sir Apropos of Nothing, which I REALLY enjoyed. This one was good, but not great.
A fun, light-read, it's a wacky tale of King Arthur in modern New York City.
Great spin on the King Arthur Tale.
Great re-imagining of the Arthurian legend. Very clever premise. Light, but fun read.
