Finally, Robert Asprin's first two Myth books in one volume! Yay! This is a great option for those who are just now discovering Mr. Asprin's brilliance, or those that knew all along and read their older copies until they just fell apart.
For those life long fans I need give you no introduction to this wonderful duo of books, but for the rest of us this is a brief synopsis broken down by book.
Another Fine Myth
Another Fine Myth is the beginning of Robert Asprin's Myth series, one of the best (and THE most hilarious) fantasy series of all time. This introduces us to the characters that make the series so wonderful. Some of the characters are
Skeeve: The apprentice to a washed out, burned out magician. When that magician is killed, Skeeve has to find a way to save his own life and find justice for his mentor.
Aahz:...a demon rendered powerless by a practical joke gone awry.
Tanda: A beautiful, voluptuous green haired assassin with a firey temper and wicked sense of humor.
And Gleep: A loveable but dumb baby dragon.
This is a great first volume that is easy to get into and introduces all the characters!
Robert Asprin has done it again! In this, the second book in the Myth series, our unlikely trio of Skeeve- former thief want-to-be and current magicians apprentice; Aahz- demon master magician currently unable to use any magic because his powers were removed as part of a practical joke gone horribly wrong; and Gleep- baby dragon with the worst breath in all of Klah!
This time they find themselves trying to get a job as court magicians, since everyone knows that being a court magician is the cushiest job in all the dimensions. But this job comes with perils, and our trio find themselves in the middle of a war, where they're doomed whether they win or loose!
