Read for the Renditions of Camelot Yahoogroup. It was great fun to have the author on the list.

The Mad Dog Connection is a clever twist on Arthurian legend. Set in modern day, the struggles of King Arthurs time are started anew with some old players and some new ones. Excalibur is not like you imagined and neither is Merlin. Tolliver keeps you chuckling with humor and your heart racing with one calamity after another. Wholly original. This is book one of three.

This delightful yarn is not only thoroughly engaging, it is a welcome addition to modern Arthurian fiction. Told in a modern setting, it draws on Arthurian characters from the Dark Ages. The story also ties in the intriguing possibility of the Welsh explorer Madog, who may have landed in America before Columbus. A very original alternative to the usual Arthurian story.
