About the Author
Tom Holt's first book was published when he was just thirteen and, to his horror, he was hailed as an infant prodigy. While studying at Oxford however he discovered Bar Billiards and turned from poetry to comic fiction.

I was lucky enough to have Rog Peyton recommend Tom Holt's novels when those were first published, and over the years I've read 16 of them. In recent years though, I was fairly disappointed by "Barking", "The Better Mousetrap" and "May Contain Traces of Magic" and so - gasp! - I stopped reading Tom Holt.
When I was given "Grailblazers", I was a bit reluctant and decided to read just the first couple pages ...
Eighty pages and one missed appointment later I know I've hit the comic jackpot = (see ratings above)
The story is simple: The Knights (of the Round Table, among them Snotty, Bedders and Turkey) go in search of the Grail, or rather items that will lead them to that mythical object of desire.
During their quests we meet 'entities' like the dwarf Toenail, a foul-mouthed Aussie unicorn, Graf Klaus von Weihnacht' (oh the joys of being bilingual), Isocrates Minor and several other school children from Atlantis, the trapped ghost of a famous writer, 'special' time travellers and we learn that Ersatz coffee is Deutschmarks steeped in radiator oil.
It doesn't get any better than this.
