5.0 out of 5 stars A Myth-terious Review May 5 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Myth series by Robert Asprin is a wonderful and exciting read. The series is full of excellent humor and is well worth the effort to acquire and read. The author has a wonderful wit and a super command of satire. The Myth series centers around a young mage named Skeeve and his mentor and best friend Ahaz. Ahaz is a money hungry demon from Perv who has lost all of his magical powers. Ahaz takes it upon himself to teach the fledgling mage all he knows of magic and in the process attempts to gain as much wealth and fame as he can for the young magi and himself. With this fame comes endless chances for adventure. The book series takes these two, as well as a host of friends, on many misguided and hilarious quests. I have rarely laughed out loud while reading, but I found myself chuckling constantly as I read this series. With friends like Tananda the sexy female troll or trollop as they are called and Chumley her very ugly, super smart brother with an English accent and proper manners, the story is a virtual paradise of laughter. Throw in the very overweight but sweetly dedicated Massha, and a loving but mentally limited pet dragon, and the mix is complete. This party of individuals gets into and out of all sorts of messes. The story is rich in reference humor as well. An example of this includes a reference to Elfquest. While adventuring in one realm the party of friends encounter two werewolves named Ydnew and Drahcir. Please note the reverse spelling of these two characters. They are known as the Wolf Writers. The obvious reference is a friendly nod to WaRP graphics. Asprin has worked with Richard and Wendy in the past, so this makes even more sense. In short, the adventures of Skeeve and Ahaz take them many places. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Two fantasy classics in one book... Dec 1 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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!
Myth Conceptions
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable light reading Dec 4 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read the Myth series about fifteen years ago while I was in high school, and I recently picked them up again after seeing these double volumes had been released. I was looking for some easy reading, and if you go expecting nothing more than that you should be rather satisfied with these first two outings. The characters of Skeeve and Aahz are likeable enough, but the ball really doesn't seem to get rolling until the second book where the extended cast begins to get introduced.
I did feel after revisiting this series that Asprin does go overboard explaining reasons for characters behavior in a way that makes it seem as if his target audience were adolescents. In many ways, you'd find more sophisticated fantasy in the Harry Potter books as the Myth tales can border on the juvenile at times. I didn't even find the humor to be that funny, but it was the aspects of dimension traveling and the supporting cast of characters that kept me interested. Probably the biggest flaw in these books is that far too much time is spent building up the misadventures that Aahz and Skeeve find themselves in and then far too little is spent upon the actual resolution. The endings seem rushed and very forced.
If you are looking for enjoyable light fantasy with an offbeat feel I could recommend this book, especially for teens. Anyone looking for something serious, challenging, or thought provoking best pass it up.

5.0 out of 5 stars His most enjoyable series May 7 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Simply put, this is Asprin's most enjoyable series of books he has. It's a lengthy series but the books all are pretty thin, around 250-300 pages. Skeeve and Aahz are entertaining characters and with the additions of Tandy, Gleep, Hugh Badaxe, and others, its humorous fantasy that travels through dimensions on entertaining adventures. Each chapter begins with a supposed quote from someone real such as "I'm just going out for a short horse back ride... G. Kahn". Some of the books I enjoyed less than others but overall an great series.
