Product Description

About the Author

Robert Asprin was the legendary creator of the long-running Myth series in which fantasy adventure meets comedy in a delightful pandemonium of magic and adventure.Asprin s Phule's Company saga, with its similarly irreverent look at military science fiction, was a "New York Times "bestseller. And with Lynn Abbey, he created the landmark, hugely-popular and long-running Thieves World fantasy series. A fan favorite at SF conventions and an active participant in Society for Creative Anachronism mayhem, Asprin passed away in 2008."

Robert Asprin can be an acquired state. I have acquired it. This book represents his legacy of short stories and gives a great insight to the development of the Myth world and its characters. There are other stories too, from other series of which I am less familiar. If you have the Asprin taste, this book is essential. If you haven't, but wish to explore his work, then this could be a good starting point.

As a huge fan reading this rare material brought great joy. Bring more Asprin to Kindle, back to the dusty old shops to hunt more books down for me!

not as good as the others in the series but still engaging - it has too many threads which requires concentration to follow

5.0 out of 5 stars Myth and Others 29 Sept. 2010
By Arthur W Jordin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Myth-Interpretations (2010) is a collection of SF/Fantasy short works from his various series and a few others. It contains nineteen stories and an introduction. Many of these works can be found within his novels or in various collections and anthologies.

- "Robert Lynn Asprin's short works" by Bill Fawcett introduces these works and tells a bit about the author.

- "The Myth Adventures" is the original proposal for the first four books in the Myth series. Much has been written about the consequences of these works.

- "Myth Adventurers" is a Myth Adventure telling of the first task in the partnership of Pookie and Spider.

- "Gleep's Tale" is a Myth Adventure written from the point of view of Skeeve's dragon.

- "M.Y.T.H. Inc. Instructions" is a Myth Adventure describing the wedding of Massha and Badaxe and the resulting problems.

- "Mything in Dreamland" is a Myth Adventure set in the land of dreams.

- "Myth-Trained" is a Myth Adventure concerning a depression episode for Buttercup the war unicorn.

- "From the Files of Tambu: The Incident at Zarn" is a Tambu story exposing a problem among his forces.

- "The Ex-Khan" in a Heroes in Hell tale involving a Mongol and an amateur military historian.

- "Two Gentlemen of the Trade" is a Merovingen Nights tale about the feud between the houses of Gregori and Hannon.

- "A Harmless Excursion" is a Merovingen Nights tale concerning an unguarded excursion by a Gregori artist.

- "Wanted: Guardian" is a tale from Forever After relating a search for a suitable custodian of an enchanted sword.

- "A Gift in Parting" is a Thieves World tale examining the nature of confidence.

- "To Guard the Guardians" is a Thieves World tale about a powerful member of the Hell Hounds.

- "The Capture" is a previously unpublished script about an alien abduction of a shipload of SF writers, editors, artists, fans and a gremlin.

- "The Ultimate Weapon" is a previously unpublished script about terrorists taking a Press Secretary hostage to force the military to stop the test of a new weapon.

- "The Saga of the Dark Horde" is a previously unpublished essay recounting the origins of the Dark Horde.

- "Cold Cash War" is a novella about corporate mercenaries.

- "You Never Call" is a Don't Forget Your Spacesuit Dear story about Mother's Day.

- "Con Job" is a Here Be Dragons tale regarding a team of con artists at DragonCon.

These stories are a great introduction to the author. They often include a bit of humor, especially in the Myth adventures. Some works contain a certain macabre humor.

The author was not the first to provide humorous SF or Fantasy, but he was among the first to produce humorous series. Two sequences not represented in this collection are the Phule and Dragon series.

The author died in 2008 shortly after mailing "Con Job" to the editor. His last novel -- in collaboration with Jody Lynn Nye -- is Dragons Deal. Read and enjoy!

Highly recommended for Asprin fans and for anyone else who enjoys tales of private adventure, cynical expertise, and persevering protagonists.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pleased, but not impressed. 5 Jan. 2011
By Jack Of All Trades - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you have read Robert Asprin before, you will enjoy this book. Each short story was good....but regretfully some were repeats from his books that I had already read. I was hoping for stories that had truely been lost and found after his death. It is for this reason only that I am giving it a less than perfect rating.
4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting collection 19 Nov. 2013
By Jeff P. Slatton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have been a big fan of Robert Asprin for years, only disliking the Phule series. His Dragon books are a real treat. This is a collection of short stories published posthumously. Some are very engaging. A few take some effort to finish. But knowing that even though the very capable Jodi Lynn Nye is continuing a couple of his better books, I am pleased to not have to go cold turkey off of the Myth series.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book of the Myth Adventures series 27 July 2016
By Daniel J. Mello - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent book of the Myth Adventures series, taking it to a whole new level. I will sorely miss the author now that he is dead, but don't despair he has a protege who has taken up the mantel to produce more books in this widely popular universe.
5.0 out of 5 stars veery pleased 5 July 2013

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Robert Asprin was one of the greatestSci-fi/humor writers. I loved his style and tongue in cheek attitude in his writings. He will be sorely missed, and I can only hope that Jody Lynn Nye takes up where he left off
