When an actor who played Robin Hood on a 1950s children's TV show wakes up in Riverworld, he decides to live out his dreams and forms a new band of Merry Men (including Abraham Lincoln as Little John). Unfortunately, he didn't count on running into Al Capone, who has hijacked a thriving technocracy run by Jules Verne.
Set in Philip Jose Farmer's Riverworld universe, this novelette was written with Farmer's permission.
As a short story, the author managed to keep and hold my interest through the entire story. Never slow or devoid of forward movement, this is a nice addition to the Riverworld universe.
