Minor spoiler points in review.

This is one of the most unusual novels I've ever read, and I mean this in a good way. We've all grown up with the legends about King Arthur, Merlin, Lancelot, Guinevere, and of course, the famous sword Excalibur, but I bet no one has read this version. Most have heard how Mordred--Arthur's greatest enemy--was able to deliver Arthur a killing blow at the same time Arthur used Excalibur to strike down Mordred. It would appear both of these men were destined to die. But what if instead, Merlin used his great magical power to put Arthur into a deep sleep? It could raise all sorts of interesting questions, one of which we read about in this novel.

After sending Arthur into a deep magical sleep, Merlin spends the next fifteen hundred years being reincarnated over and over again, though not as human until the last. At one time or another he has been just about every kind of living thing known to man, including leaves, worms, and of course, an assortment of animals. During these many long years Merlin has had several bad experiences from the teeth and claw end of cats and he has learned to hate them with a passion. I don't want to give too much away, but Merlin's intense dislike of cats will play an important (and amusing) part of the whole story.

I thought it was clever on the author's part to have each of the important characters from King Arthur's past come together again when Arthur awakes after his enchanted sleep. We meet up again with modern-day versions of Lancelot, Guinevere, Merlin, and even Excalibur--only the famous sword is no longer a sword, having been broken during his last battle with Mordred. Merlin must weave his magic once again and molds the broken pieces of Excalibur into an electric guitar.

This intriguing novel has King Arthur awaking from a long sleep -- a _very_ long sleep -- to find himself in the modern world we know. Lucky for him, Merlin is nearby to guide him in his new life -- well, at least to try. It seems Arthur's famous sword has somehow survived the time trip -- as a guitar! You can guess from that where this story is going, and indeed it goes, at a fast pace with a back beat. If you like rock and roll, Welsh history and Arthurian comedy, you will have a fun read with this one. I'd have given it five stars except being a Yank, I'm kind of weak on Welsh history (to put it politely) and also on the details of the Arthurian legend. But after reading this book, I'm somewhat better informed, and thoroughly entertained.

A fascinating concept of the afterlife of King Arthur. Weird and quirky it reminded me of the Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy. So many subtle and hilarious references. Even the names had double entendres. Anyone with an off the wall sense of humor would enjoy this book. I love it when an author just lets his mind wander. I do understand that some people just didn't get it. Unfortunately that is their loss. I really enjoyed the book.

Creative writing consists of two elements. The creativity which brings on a new and interesting idea or concept, and the literary ability to convey that concept in an entertaining form, which will rivet the reader to the page. Here is a wonderful idea, King Arthur in the modern day, and the story is delivered with panache and verve. A masterwork by Glen and recommended without reserve.
