Mathematician Jim Eckert, who has come to live in magical medieval times and can become a dragon at will, becomes an unlikely ally of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table

Blackwell North Amer
In this latest of Gordon R. Dickson's adventures of Jim Eckert - the twentieth-century scholar 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 the 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.
Although centuries have elapsed, Arthur and his court live on in Lyonesse because there are still those who believe in them. And 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.
