Don your armour and saddle your horse, because in episode eight we're journeying back to the age of chivalry courtesy of Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch's classic Arthurian fantasy, The Legend of Sir Dinar. The story was originally published in The Speaker in 1891 under Quiller-Couch's pseudonym of Q. It is about the quest for the Holy Grail, but focuses on a lesser known knight called Sir Dinar, who is left at Camelot because of his inexperience. Sir Dinar is not happy about being excluded, and hoping to make a name for himself, sets out to join the search with a few close friends. Needless to say, things do not go smoothly. With it's fairy-tale sensibility and succinct prose, the story is a testament to Quiller-Couch's writing prowess. He is nowhere near as well known as he should be, though his work does appear in anthologies from time to time, so was an ideal candidate for the Back the Bookshelf treatment. C.J. Carter-Stephenson narrates the episode with music by Kevin MacLeod and the usual immersive soundscape. We hope you enjoy it.
