Another alternative universe
September 7th, 2013
A zievatron lets Dennis emerge into another Earth where inanimate things become better when they are "practised". But people appear to know nothing about civilisation even if they have very sophisticated tools, apparently. And Lennora, Princess of the L'toff so beautiful. Dennis, the scientist has to wade through this world, trying just to survive, especially since everybody considera him a wizard, and a very powerful one too. Nice book, could have been written in the 50s or 60s, but it is highly enjoyable.
