Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the last and possibly best in a series of five stories in which computer programmer "Wiz" Zumwalt finds himself in a world of magic.

Rick Cook often writes books which poke fun at the fantasy genre, usually by combining it with another type of writing and exploiting the incongruities by having, say Gods and private detectives in the same story. Here the incongruity is between the worlds of computer nerds and "Lord of the Rings" style high fantasy.

Although the five books in the series can all stand on their own, there is some ongoing development of characters and situations through the series, and a lot of scene-setting was done in the first volume. So the whole is greater than the sum of the parts, and if you are going to read them, start with either "Wizard's Bane" which is the first book on its own, or "The Wiz Biz" which is a double volume combining the first two books in the series. Similarly there is a double volume "Cursed and Consulted" which combines books three and four. "The Wizardry quested" is the only one which has to be bought as a solo volume.

The full series is:

Wizard's Bane ............. } Combined as "The
The Wizardry Compiled } Wiz Biz"

The Wizardy Cursed ..... } Combined as "Cursed
The Wizardry Consulted } and Consulted"

The Wizardy Quested

Most of these books are hysterically funny. In "The Wizardry Quested", the computer programmers who have moved to the magic world have to take a dragon back to Las Vegas for the "Comdex" trade show.

"You would think that a 20-foot dragon walking down the streets of an American city would attract at least some attention." This being Las Vegas, people at first draw the correct conclusion that the dragon is there for Comdex.

Good companions: Malkin's a kleptomaniac adrenaline junkie. June's crazy. Danny's still kind of wild and the dwarf, Glandurg, is just plain dangerous. Magic weapons: The sword Blind Fury was enchanted, but like the present wielder, the spell was seriously lacking in ept. Strange new lands: You would think that a 20-foot dragon walking down the street of an American city would attract at least some attention. You would be wrong. Anyone who has been in Las Vegas more than 48 hours has seen stranger things than that on the breakfast buffet.
As in The Wiz Biz things are lively around Wiz Zumwalt. This time he has to save his wife and his world. Going back to Earth with a dragon turns out to be an interesting experience for all involved. I liked the book. It was along the lines of The Wiz Biz - no big surprises, yet a pleasant amount of action and funnies.

The action is back in this addition to the series. Cook lampoons dungeon adventures, screen savers, and Comdex while tying up some loose ends from The Wizardry Cursed. A fun read that I didn't want to end.

Who say's we can't have technology and magick?? 8 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Who say's we can't have technology and magick?? Well who ever did didn't tell Rick Cook that. This book was a spectacular blend of modern day technology and renaissance day's of magick. Rick Cook also did a excelent job in keeping the tecnology / fantasy magick alive that made you believe that it just might be possible, even in today's skepticism.

Great mindless fun 16 Nov. 2004

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have enjoyed all the books by Rick Cook. This is a little weak compared to the rest but still enjoyable.
Fun Continuation of Story 10 Jun. 2011

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I had to buy this book because it wasn't available for my kindle. Since I like to finish series that I start, this was my only recourse. Fun book, even for a person not too geeky. You would certainly never want to read this without having read the other books.
Good characters and plot for pure escapist fiction.
