Merlin in Cyberland
MERLIN IN CYBERLAND CD RELEASED
Margaret Mann's latest book, Merlin in
Cyberland, has just been released on Audio CD. This exciting
half-hour drama features the voices of a dozen actors and special sound
effects recorded at a BBC studio.
From his secret house in Bath's Circus, the
wizard Merlin - Master of Time and Space - sends four young Merlinauts
(Sam, Gilly, Lucy and Jonathan) on a magical trip into Cyberland, where
they meet the new Knights of the 21st Century Round Table.
In the course of their adventures, they
learn to break through the prevailing cynicism and negativity of modern
life and to develop their personal talents and imagination to help
create a better world. In the end, they find that the future is really
more beautiful than the past.
Margaret Mann's first book, The Merlin
Set-Up, was published on her 80th birthday. The Merlin Quartet,
aimed especially at older teenagers, also includes Under the
Merlin Spell and Merlin's Island.
The daughter of a country parson, Margaret
slid away from Christian orthodoxy until her reading of William Blake
and Teilhard de Chardin restored her faith and gave her a passionate
belief in the future of mankind. She lives in Bath, which is the
setting for much of her writing.
Margaret has always retained a fascination
for science (read her tales of space and time travel) and for myth and
legend, especially the Arthurian and Grail stories (read her reworking
of Celtic adventures). Written with humour and insight, her books are
an attempt to address existing problems in our society and religion,
and will appeal to anyone who has hope for the future.
