Our 1891 medieval science fiction story, “The Brazen Android”, continues. (Sorry I didn’t post it earlier. Totally forgot.)
When we last left our scientific hero, Friar Roger Bacon, and our engineering hero, Friar Thomas Bungy (known to literature as Bungay), the Italian scientist and magician Malatesti (who inspired Bacon to design the Brazen Android) had just come to call. He makes for an uncomfortable guest.
