Created by Robert Randisi and Kevin D. Randle
1939 Chicago shamus MILES PALADON is gunned down in a back alley and comes to on a bloody medieval battlefield with an arrow sticking out of his chest and a bunch of Prince Valiant lookalikes calling him Prince Paladon.
Yep, it's another of those "how the hell did I end up here?" stories you always seem to run into when you're wading through the swamp of SF/fantasy/P.I. stories. It seems that the prince, the heir to the throne of Palandrum, has taken an arrow while battling Queen of Daman, and sorcery has united these dopplegangers across time and space. Living as two men in one body in Palandrum, the two men have a running internal dialog which leads the Prince to hire the P. I. to find out who tried to murder the Prince.
What makes this one more enjoyable than most is that it echoes, at times, Mark Twain's classic A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, and that its authors are Robert Randisi, the creator of such classic gumshoes as Henry Po and Miles Jacoby (not to mention founder of the Private Eye Writers of America), and Kevin Randle, writer of several popular science fiction/adventure novels, including Seeds of War and the highly-touted historical sci-fi adventure Remember the Alamo.
