ROBERT ASPRIN SERIES:
New York Times bestselling author Robert Asprin scales new heights in his series of Big Easy-dwelling dragons...
Griffen McCandles is adjusting well to running his gambling operation in the French Quarter of New Orleans and to his newfound status as head dragon. But he still doesn't know much about dragon protocol—or what he's really capable of. Other dragons are getting a whiff of his reputation, though, and they're not happy about it. Which is why there's suddenly a hit out on Griffen.
And, just in time for Halloween, the ghost of a voodoo queen wants Griffen to moderate a supernatural conclave. And though the strange goings-on will barely be noticed in a city used to drunken conventioneers and wild revelers, it's Griffen's chance to spread his wings—or crash and burn...
From the New York Times bestselling author of the Phule's Company series ... Robert Asprin’s classic fantasy series, Myth Adventures, is now available in eBook! With cover and interior illustrations by Phil Foglio!
Love is in the air ... and it might just turn deadly for our hero!
Skeeve is a powerful magician, and he always means well ... but he is more than a bit naive when it comes to romance. And suddenly, he’s drowning in a sea of romance! There’s Bunny, the brilliant mob moll, Cassandra the friendly neighborhood vampire night club queen ... and of course, there’s the sexy but dangerously twisted Queen Hemlock.
Only one of his nubile suitors can assure his future—and maybe even keep him alive !
I have a problem ...
“And so, to recap, the situation is this ...”
I ticked the points off on my fingers, giving my audience a visual image to reinforce my words.
“First, Queen Hemlock wants me to be her consort. Second, she's given me a month to think it over before I reach my decision. Third ...”
I tapped the appropriate finger for emphasis.
“If I decide not to marry her, she says she'll abdicate, naming me her successor and sticking me with the whole mess. Got that?”
I was proud of my ability to address the problem head on, summarizing and analyzing it as I sought a solution. There was a time in the not too distant past when I simply would have lapsed into blind panic. If nothing else, my adventures over the years had done wonders for my confidence in my abilities to handle nearly any crisis.
“Gleep!” my audience responded.
Okay ... so I wasn't all that confident.
EDITORIAL REVIEW: Presenting a collection of short novels and stories set in the many worlds of Robert Asprin. One of his most popular creations was the “Myth” series, chronicling the misadventures of Skeeve and Aahz, a magician who has lost his power and his hapless human apprentice as they travel through strange and varied worlds in pursuit of wealth and glory, but mostly getting into one Myth-ical mess after another. Collected in this volume for the first time are all the Myth stories of less-than-novel length, and even avid fans of the series will find new and enjoyable reading here. Also included are other short works by Asprin, including his award-winning novelette “Cold Cash War,” and several unpublished stories discovered after the writer’s death. Asprin’s many fans, as well as all readers who enjoy humorous fantasy and science fiction, will find a treasure trove of enjoyable reading. As editor Bill Fawcett puts it, “His stories are always fun, but never predictable.”
