    This was a collection of short stories Some were written by Robert Asprin, some by Jody Lynn Nye and some were a collaboration between the two There are also two slightly versions about how the two came to meet and work together As short stories go these were worth reading, and deal with different events, from a different characters point of view Myth Congeniality takes Skeeve and Bunny to a beauty pageant M.Y.T.H Inc Instructions concerns a wedding present for Massha and General Bada This was a collection of short stories Some were written by Robert Asprin, some by Jody Lynn Nye and some were a collaboration between the two There are also two slightly versions about how the two came to meet and work together As short stories go these were worth reading, and deal with different events, from a different characters point of view Myth Congeniality takes Skeeve and Bunny to a beauty pageant M.Y.T.H Inc Instructions concerns a wedding present for Massha and General Badaxe Myth Adventurers describes the continuing association of Pookie and Spyder Myth Calculations puts Guido, Tananda, and Chumley into a confrontation with a rival gang Myth ter Right sets Massha and Aahz looking for mysterious things going on during a dragon chase M.Y.T.H Inc Proceeds brings Guido to Skeeve with a king sized problem Mything in Dreamland drops Skeeve, Aahz and Gleep into Dreamland Myth Matched involves Tananda in a marital assassination Myth Trained causes Skeeve to seek advice from Big Julie

    I enjoy this series Myth Adventures Robert Asprin had an interesting idea, and ran with it Then he hooked up with author Jody Lynn Nye and they ran off together Robert wrote 12 books in the series he and Jody have written another 4 together The editor says This is the point where an editor is supposed to say something meaningful about the literary work and its social import Not on your life Myth Adventures has always been about being fun to read and laughing along with the characters I enjoy this series Myth Adventures Robert Asprin had an interesting idea, and ran with it Then he hooked up with author Jody Lynn Nye and they ran off together Robert wrote 12 books in the series he and Jody have written another 4 together The editor says This is the point where an editor is supposed to say something meaningful about the literary work and its social import Not on your life Myth Adventures has always been about being fun to read and laughing along with the characters So all that needs to be said is Enjoy I totally agree with one added warning If you don t enjoy a good pun, don t pick up this series Because you will be hooked And there won t be anyone around to throw you back

    Have enjoyed Robert Aspirin s gang and sorry that he is gone Sadly, I finished his solo Myth lineage with the tales in this book although I have a fewco written pieces with Nye and will greatly miss his contribution to the fantasy world.Worth reading if only to glimpse the individual team members in smaller bites.

    What ages would I recommend it too Twelve and up Length Most of a day s read.Characters Memorable, several characters.Setting Fantasy, alternate dimensions.Written approximately 2007.Does the story leave questions in the readers mind Ready to read .Any issues the author or arecent publisher should cover No.Notes for the reader This was an excellent collection of short stories with two stories about Gleep Would happily readstories about Gleep

    For a change, a collection of short stories, written by both the original author, Asprin, and his new co writer, Nye I knocked it down a star for unevenness but it s still his universe, and it s always great fun to send a bit of time in it Bonus Gleep POV

    For short stories, they were good, but I would rather have had a full novel.

    Well Apparently I liked this book so much I bought it twice LoL No seriously, I bought the 2003 edition that features the three short stories, Myth Congeniality, Myth Calculations, Myth ter Right.My sister, bless her, stood in line for me over the Labor Day weekend at Dragon Con 2003 and was able to get it Autographed by Jody Lynn Nye because I was unable to attend that year In 2007, it was re released with sixshort stories folded in with the original three listed above The additi Well Apparently I liked this book so much I bought it twice LoL No seriously, I bought the 2003 edition that features the three short stories, Myth Congeniality, Myth Calculations, Myth ter Right.My sister, bless her, stood in line for me over the Labor Day weekend at Dragon Con 2003 and was able to get it Autographed by Jody Lynn Nye because I was unable to attend that year In 2007, it was re released with sixshort stories folded in with the original three listed above The additional stories are 1 M.Y.T.H Inc Instructions, 2 Myth Adventurers, 3 M.Y.T.H Inc Proceeds, 4 Mything In Dreamland, 5 Myth Matched, and lastly 6 Myth Trained coming to a grand total of nine stories Which is interesting to me because on the back cover of the book it says there are eight stories included So, I m either the worst math student ever, or it s just another example of poor workmanship from the publishers Whether there are eight stories or nine doesn t matter What does matter is that they are all GOOD stories It s also clear that Bob Jody had fun while writing about the myth guided Klahd Pervect and it shows in the stories Both authors have us, the readers, laughing out loud both at with Aahz Skeeve It never ceases to amaze me the amount of trouble those two demons can get Into and somehow mysteriously get themselves back Out of Go ahead, give yourself permission to escape to a different dimension and join in the adventures for a while It ll put a well deserved smile on your face

    2.5This collection of short stories was not all that great to me I enjoyed a few of the tales here, but others I just could not get into It s tough to admit, but Asprin seems to have lost a comedic and entertainment step here in gaining Nye as a co author A couple of the shorts, mostly the ones written by Asprin alone, are enjoyable and retain that same flavor of Myth from before Others don t feel the same There is a pretension to the diction, a heavy handedness to the approach of the narra 2.5This collection of short stories was not all that great to me I enjoyed a few of the tales here, but others I just could not get into It s tough to admit, but Asprin seems to have lost a comedic and entertainment step here in gaining Nye as a co author A couple of the shorts, mostly the ones written by Asprin alone, are enjoyable and retain that same flavor of Myth from before Others don t feel the same There is a pretension to the diction, a heavy handedness to the approach of the narrative where before Asprin had tread with great care of brilliant comedic flourishes This can be skipped over

    We picked this up because it was co authored, and Josh hadn t been aware of the co authored sets of these before We ve both read all the original Asprin Myth tales I really enjoyed it The switching between the authors was pretty seamless, and the result is a set of short stories in classic form for the world I liked the short story format, honestly, because some times the zaniness gets a lot for the longer plots in the novels It felt fresh, and interesting.I m giving it five stars in part We picked this up because it was co authored, and Josh hadn t been aware of the co authored sets of these before We ve both read all the original Asprin Myth tales I really enjoyed it The switching between the authors was pretty seamless, and the result is a set of short stories in classic form for the world I liked the short story format, honestly, because some times the zaniness gets a lot for the longer plots in the novels It felt fresh, and interesting.I m giving it five stars in part to say, yes, this part of the series is also worth it And in part because I honestly have no complaints
