This came back to me as I read it (30 years and a plethora of books intbe meantime are reason enough for a little literary amnesia), and I remembered enjoying it even as I enjoyed it this time. Very fun. Someday, I hope to run across a copy of the original...Stasheff says it's not the same story and I'm curious as to the differences.

Nice piece in the canon. ( )

So our beloved High Warlock is now the (very) proud Papa of a bouncing, blinking, levitating little baby warlock. The kid's kinda cute, but I'm disappointed that the kid's presence saves the day at the end of the book. I'm getting Star Wars Episode 1 flashbacks...

It looks like we got an introduction to the two most powerful espers on the planet (Agatha and Galen) and an example of how the witch-moss works. So not too bad at filling in some world details and adding a little depth.

I thought the dialog went downhill a little in this outing and about the only interesting banter involved the Neanderthal, Yorik. Alas, poor Yorik, I don't know why he gave you the name he did...

"Sorrowful it was, and great cause for Mourning, that so young a King should die, and that in his Bed; yet Death doth come to all, yea, the High and the lowly alike, and 'tis not by our choosing, but by God's.

Book description
Gramarye is a forgotten colony of Earth, an abandoned planet of telepathic outlaws, where elves and witches are real, and the fantasies of the Middle Ages endure. Wizard Rod Gallowglass is the only one who can save Gramarye from doom--if he can rid himself of the insidious mental fog that drains his powers.
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Christopher Stasheff wrote the original King Kobold in 1971. Twelve years later, based on feedback from readers as well as his own personal dissatisfaction with the book, he decided to rewrite the story. While King Kobold Revived follows the same basic outline as the original 1971 edition, the book has been totally redone. The author had twelve years between the two writings to mull things over, and it shows. The plot is much tighter, the characters much more developed and the writing more fluid. Enter the fantastic world of Gramarye once again, where magic lives with science and the Warlock in Spite of Himself, Rod Gallowglass, is once again called upon to save the planet from marauding evil ... if he can overcome the insidious mental fog that clouds his mind and threatens his powers.… (more)
