I’m still on my TV tie-in novel kick. I’ve now moved on to The Avengers
(although that doesn’t mean I’m finished with The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
) and my latest such read has been The Drowned Queen
, the first of the Avengers
novels to feature Tara King. It was published in 1968.
Written by American science fiction author Keith Laumer The Drowned Queen
isn’t a complete success but it is nonetheless very enjoyable lightweight fun.
Here’s the link to my review
at Cult TV Lounge.
"Not a complete success but it is nonetheless very enjoyable lightweight fun." Sounds like a Tara King story alright!ReplyDelete

Nothing wrong with that. The monochrome Emma Peel era probably was The Avengers at its absolute peak. I'd have to admit that, even though I'm inordinately fond of the Tara King era.
