The Trials of Arthur – now on Kindle

June 19, 2012 at 9:42 am 2 comments

Yep, The Trials of Arthur by Arthur Pendragon by CJ Stone is now available on Kindle priced £2.05, and just in time for the Solstice too. Image

But it’s not the Trials of Arthur that you may already know. This is a new, revised version containing seven new chapters from both authors and much that is rejigged, reworked and generally loved up. To give you a sense of how much revision there has been, the new version is over 20,000 words longer than the original.

All this raises the question of whether it is worth spending £2.05 for people who have already read the paperback. And to be honest, it is – this wasn’t the original intention, you understand, originally we were only going to tweak a few bits for the Kindle. But something possessed the authors and they got carried away, to the point that they are now ecstatically happy and convinced that the book is “everything it could possibly be.”

The Trials of Arthur was already an extraordinary book – a biography that is equal parts heroic and mad as all hell, a deep insight into what it means to be alive, and the definitive book about the protest scene of the late twentieth century. Anyone not already familiar with the story is strongly advised to at least have a glance at the free sample.

We’ll get Arthur or Chris on here soon to explain themselves soon but if you want to quiz them sooner, you’ll find them at Stonehenge by the Heel Stone for the Solstice. Happy Midsummer!

    I have been trying to find out more about my cousin, now called Arthur Pendragon, who was born Clive Stephen. His father was parachuted into Arnheim and survived, and was the brother of my father.

      Hi Rita – that doesn’t sound like this Arthur Pendragon, I’m afraid, he has gone by many names but I’m pretty sure not Clive Stephen.

      I’ll check with CJ, though, on the off chance that the name means anything to him.
