Description

Looks like a tramp. Says he's a King. Meet Arthur - Warrior, leader and Druid. An ex-squaddie and biker turned spiritual leader and parliamentary candidate. The bearer of the Sword of Britain. Once voted the tenth most outrageous man in Britain by Loaded magazine, following the incident where he was naked in the Royal Courts of Justice. He is also - some would say - the legendary King Arthur, returned at last, fighting to revive the Wasteland and renew these islands. Don't believe him? Come with him on adventures and quests, through fields and forests and sacred places, to the mythical Britain behind the facade of our empty consumer culture. Regardless of whether you believe he is who he says he is, one thing is certain: he's the best Arthur we have.

This new edition has been extensively revised by both authors. It includes nine new chapters and is over 20,000 words longer than the first edition.

"Am I alone in thrilling to the sight of this noble throwback to the age of Celtic romance? Our Prime Minister is a grinning, charmless twerp; our Archbishop of Canterbury has as much spiritual charisma as a raw potato; and the House of Windsor is Dullsville. I'd dump the whole lot of them tomorrow and replace them with a single Royal, Spiritual and Political leader - King Arthur." --A.N. Wilson, Evening Standard 1997

...the amazing story of one singular man. But it is also the inspiring tale of an unjustly maligned British counterculture. Searching, funny, intelligent and illuminating, it is on one level a rip-roaring read, whimsical and compelling, and on another a haunting elegy to all those people who refuse to accept that they cannot make a difference in a world they know must change.' --Deborah Orr

...the compelling and often hilarious story of how an ex-soldier, ex-builder and always-biker donned a white frock (his words) and changed his name legally and regally to Arthur Pendragon. So is this long-haired, bearded, cider-loving guy with a sword really Arthur Pendragon? ...as the book says, if Geoffrey of Monmouth, Chretien de Troyes, Malory, Spencer and Tennyson can reinvent Arthur for their own purposes, spiritual or political, then so can we; he's the King Arthur reinvented for today.' 9/10. --Fortean Times

...filled with sagas, some hilarious, others sad and poignant, which show that this man is a human being on a mission to uphold "Truth, Honour and Justice." The reader can't help but like the man who calls himself King Arthur Uther Pendragon.' --Hampshire Chronicle

For those of you not familiar with Arthur Pendragon, Druid King and Stonehenge defender, you're in for a treat. Arthur's story is one that is needed in these days when the people of Britain are being led into conflicts not of their choosing and are suffering at the hands of politicians and bureaucracy. Having faced racism and the worst that British society can offer, it is no small relief to find this patriotic upholder of all the good things about being British. Long live the once and present King! Highly recommended.' --Tania Ahsan, Prediction.
