(Excerpted from the dust jacket) What does a half-trained apprentice magician do when his master is killed while conjuring up a demon— leaving him to face a green, pointy-eared creature with razon sharp teeth? If the place is Klah and the apprentice is Skeeve, the answer is clear: set off on a riotous odyssey through a universe where magic and science combine to create more trouble than man or beast can imagine.
Another Fine Myth introduces Skeeve to the green-skinned Aahz, dimension-traveler from Perv. He offers to complete Skeeve's training and help him track down his master's murderer. The killer, a nasty fellow from the dimension of Imper, is scheming to take over the universe.
Myth Conceptions finds Skeeve applying for the job of Court Magician in Possitum. The cushy job Aahz has promised becomes quite something else.
In Myth Directions, former Assassin Tanda takes Skeeve on a whirlwind tour of the other dimensions to find the perfect birthday present for her old friend Aahz.
Hit or Myth finds Aahz returning to Perv and Skeeve duped into standing in for a cowardly king who's about to marry the ruthless, bloodthirsty, promiscuous Queen Hemlock.
All in all, Asprin gives the reader an engaging menagerie of wizards, demons, kings, dragons, gremlins, gargoyles and dimension-hopping gangsters no lover of fantasy will be able to resist.
