Robert Franklin Young was a science fiction writer who has produced many intriguing works, such as Startling Stories and The Dandelion Girl, as well as novels such as Starfinder, Eridahn and The Vizier's Second Daughter.
A Knyght Ther Was is one of the lesser known, yet also one of the most exciting works of the American writer. In it, Young creates a fascinating future world set in the year 2178, when time travel was banned just as soon as it was discovered. Among those who broke the law and still used this powerful technology was a "time thief" - time traveling outlaw - known as Tom Mallory.
In the story, Mallory is one of the best time thieves on the planet, and he is planning on pinpointing the last known location of the Holy Grail in the year 542 AD to try to steal it, return to the future and become extremely rich. Will his daring plan succeed?
The story is presented in a rich and highly descriptive fashion that is quite unique and distinctive when compared to the style used by many other sci-fi writers of the time. You will soon see how the book is quite an easy read, and anyone fascinated with the concept of time travel and future technology will not be able to put it down.
This is just one of the many tales through which Robert F. Young managed to captivate the sci-fi community throughout more than 30 years of writing exceptional novels and stories. He continued writing up to his death in 1989, and only at the end did most people find out that he was actually employed as a janitor in the Buffalo school system.
A Knyght Ther Was is an exceptional tale of adventure and time travel written by a talented writer who gave most of his life to sci-fi. You will find the story to be most entertaining, unique and well-written, providing an enjoyable read, without feeling outdated, even years after it was written.
