Prerequisites: Doughnut, Valhalla.
Also recommended: Faust Among Equals, the J.W. Wells series.

This is a direct sequel to Doughnut that also ties in with Valhalla. J.W. Wells is mentioned in passing, as is Kurt Lundqvist from Faust Among Equals, but the story works fine if you haven't read those books. (For that matter, Valhalla isn't essential, but it plays a more significant role in the plot.)

As for the book itself...well, it's pretty standard Holt fare. If you're read Doughnut, you know exactly what I mean. If not, this will make even less sense to you. It is, after all, a sequel; not knowing what happened in that book will leave you even more confused than If It's a Jar's protagonist, and that's no small feat. ( )

I didn't find the protagonist as appealing as some others, but this continuation of the multiverse theme of _Doughnut_ keeps the reader guessing. Read _Doughnut_ first. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316226122, Paperback)

Maurice has just killed a dragon with a bread knife. And had his destiny foretold... and had his true love spirited away. That's precisely the sort of stuff that'd bring out the latent heroism in anyone. Unfortunately, Maurice is pretty sure he hasn't got any latent heroism.

Meanwhile, a man wakes up in a jar in a different kind of pickle (figuratively speaking). He can't get out, of course, but neither can he remember his name, or what gravity is, or what those things on the ends of his legs are called... and every time he starts working it all out, someone makes him forget again. Forget everything.

Only one thing might help him. The answer to the most baffling question of all...

Maurice has just killed a dragon with a bread knife... and his true love has been spirited away. Meanwhile, a man wakes up in a jar in a different kind of pickle (figuratively speaking): he can't get out, or remember his name... or anything... and every time he starts working it all out, someone makes him forget again. An absurdly witty novel of alternate universes and very unlikely heroes.… (more)
