Woo! As the title of this post says, I’m the listener sponsor of this week’s War Rocket Ajax, or, more properly, Arthur Dies at the End is. I really should have come up with some better ad copy, but Matt and Chris do yeoman’s work in attempting to describe the books. You know B to the F, Ryan North’s book about the novelization of Back to the Future? No? Well, it’s a lot like that, only instead of being a detailed and chatty review of a confusingly-written novelization of an all-time great movie, it’s a detailed and chatty review of one of the foundational books of the Western fantasy canon: Le Morte D’Arthur, by Sir Thomas Malory. If you’re reading this, of course, you very probably knew that already, but if not, let me invite you to click on the handsome link up on the header there!
Also Matt and Chris got one thing wrong; the first volume of Arthur Dies at the End is on sale for $0.99, but the other four are not. I invite you to read Something about a Sword and a Stone? which covers King Arthur’s secret origin and a lot of Merlin being a jackass, at a price so low it should probably be raised! Up in that header you can get a link to the first few sections of Something About a Sword and a Stone? as a page here, to try before you buy. Or heck, here’s the link right now!
